Trailblazer vs Yesod: What are the differences?

What is Trailblazer? A new architecture for Rails. Trailblazer is a thin layer on top of Rails. It gently enforces encapsulation, an intuitive code structure and gives you an object-oriented architecture. In a nutshell: Trailblazer makes you write logicless models that purely act as data objects, don't contain callbacks, nested attributes, validations or domain logic. It removes bulky controllers and strong_parameters by supplying additional layers to hold that code and completely replaces helpers.

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.

Trailblazer and Yesod belong to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack.

"Trailblazer allows creating sane, large apps in Rails" is the top reason why over 3 developers like Trailblazer, while over 5 developers mention "Haskell" as the leading cause for choosing Yesod.

Trailblazer and Yesod are both open source tools. Trailblazer with 2.91K GitHub stars and 129 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Yesod with 2.11K GitHub stars and 329 GitHub forks.
