Volt vs Yesod: What are the differences?

Volt: A ruby web framework where your ruby runs on both server and client. Volt is a ruby web framework where your ruby code runs on both the server and the client (via opal.) The DOM automatically update as the user interacts with the page. Page state can be stored in the URL, if the user hits a URL directly, the HTML will first be rendered on the server for faster load times and easier indexing by search engines; 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.

Volt and Yesod can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

Some of the features offered by Volt are:

  • Instead of syncing data between the client and server via HTTP, volt uses a persistent connection between the client and server
  • When data is updated on one client, it is updated in the database and any other listening clients (with almost no setup code needed)
  • Pages HTML is written in a handlebars like template language

On the other hand, Yesod provides the following key features:

  • safety & security guaranteed at compile time
  • developer productivity: tools for all your basic web development needs
  • raw performance

"Handlebars" is the top reason why over 2 developers like Volt, while over 5 developers mention "Haskell" as the leading cause for choosing Yesod.

Volt and Yesod are both open source tools. It seems that Volt with 3.3K GitHub stars and 209 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Yesod with 2.11K GitHub stars and 329 GitHub forks.
