Rocket vs Yesod: What are the differences?
What is Rocket? Web Framework for Rust. Rocket is a web framework for Rust that makes it simple to write fast web applications without sacrificing flexibility or type safety. All with minimal code.
What is Yesod? A RESTful Haskell web framework built on WAI. Yesod believes in the philosophy of making the compiler your ally, not your enemy. We use the type system to enforce as much as possible, from generating proper links, to avoiding XSS attacks, to dealing with character encoding issues. In general, if your code compiles, it works. And instead of declaring types everywhere you let the compiler figure them out for you with type inference.
Rocket and Yesod belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.
"Uses all the rust features extensively" is the top reason why over 2 developers like Rocket, while over 5 developers mention "Haskell" as the leading cause for choosing Yesod.
Rocket and Yesod are both open source tools. It seems that Rocket with 7.42K GitHub stars and 500 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Yesod with 2.11K GitHub stars and 329 GitHub forks.
