Semantic UI vs Symfony: What are the differences?

Semantic UI: A UI Component library implemented using a set of specifications designed around natural language. Semantic empowers designers and developers by creating a shared vocabulary for UI; Symfony: A PHP full-stack web framework. Symfony is written with speed and flexibility in mind. It allows developers to build better and easy to maintain websites with PHP. Symfony can be used to develop all kind of websites, from your personal blog to high traffic ones like Dailymotion or Yahoo! Answers.

Semantic UI and Symfony are primarily classified as "Front-End Frameworks" and "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools respectively.

"Easy to use and looks elegant", "Variety of components" and "Themes" are the key factors why developers consider Semantic UI; whereas "Open source", "Php" and "Community" are the primary reasons why Symfony is favored.

Semantic UI and Symfony are both open source tools. Semantic UI with 45.7K GitHub stars and 4.83K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Symfony with 21K GitHub stars and 6.98K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Symfony has a broader approval, being mentioned in 355 company stacks & 267 developers stacks; compared to Semantic UI, which is listed in 77 company stacks and 50 developer stacks.

    ReactQL is a React + GraphQL front-end starter kit. #JSX is a natural way to think about building UI, and it renders to pure #HTML in the browser and on the server, making it trivial to build server-rendered Single Page Apps. GraphQL via Apollo was chosen for the data layer; #GraphQL makes it simple to request just the data your app needs, and #Apollo takes care of communicating with your API (written in any language; doesn't have to be JavaScript!), caching, and rendering to #React.

    ReactQL is written in TypeScript to provide full types/Intellisense, and pick up hard-to-diagnose goofs that might later show up at runtime. React makes heavy use of Webpack 4 to handle transforming your code to an optimised client-side bundle, and in throws back just enough code needed for the initial render, while seamlessly handling import statements asynchronously as needed, making the payload your user downloads ultimately much smaller than trying to do it by hand.

    React Helmet was chosen to handle <head> content, because it works universally, making it easy to throw back the correct <title> and other tags on the initial render, as well as inject new tags for subsequent client-side views.

    styled-components, Sass, Less and PostCSS were added to give developers a choice of whether to build styles purely in React / JavaScript, or whether to defer to a #css #preprocessor. This is especially useful for interop with UI frameworks like Bootstrap, Semantic UI, Foundation, etc - ReactQL lets you mix and match #css and renders to both a static .css file during bundling as well as generates per-page <style> tags when using #StyledComponents.

    React Router handles routing, because it works both on the server and in the client. ReactQL customises it further by capturing non-200 responses on the server, redirecting or throwing back custom 404 pages as needed.

    Koa is the web server that handles all incoming HTTP requests, because it's fast (TTFB < 5ms, even after fully rendering React), and its natively #async, making it easy to async/await inside routes and middleware.

    I really love Django because it is really fast to create a web application from scratch and it has a lot a facilities like the ORM or the Admin module ! The Python language is really easy to read and powerful, that's why I prefer Django over Symfony.

    I use Django at work to make tools for the technicians but I also use it for me to build my personal website which I host on PythonAnywhere.

    Symfony is a set of PHP Components, a Web Application framework, a Philosophy, and a Community — all working together in harmony A framework is a collection of universal, reusable programs that accomplish particular tasks to facilitate the development of software applications. A framework is a pledge of quality, upgradability and maintainability of applications at lower cost. Applications developed using a framework are interoperable with market standards.

    We developed our ERP with Symfony, then we use this framework and its components in e-commerce customization.

    We use Semantic UI for our frotend. A heavily customised version of it, but still Semantic UI under the hood.
