Yesod vs Zend Framework: What are the differences?

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; Zend Framework: An open source, object-oriented web application framework implemented in PHP 5. Zend Framework 2 is an open source framework for developing web applications and services using PHP 5.3+. Zend Framework 2 uses 100% object-oriented code and utilises most of the new features of PHP 5.3, namely namespaces, late static binding, lambda functions and closures.

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

"Haskell" is the primary reason why developers consider Yesod over the competitors, whereas "Open source" was stated as the key factor in picking Zend Framework.

Yesod and Zend Framework are both open source tools. It seems that Zend Framework with 5.71K GitHub stars and 2.87K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Yesod with 2.11K GitHub stars and 329 GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Zend Framework has a broader approval, being mentioned in 40 company stacks & 22 developers stacks; compared to Yesod, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

      Review ofZend FrameworkZend Framework

      Zend framework is firstly designed for experienced professional developers, who have been part of international teams for years. With Zend Framework one could harness nuances of high scale eLearning, eCommerce and eBanking applications without fuss and implement robust, market demands meeting solutions. Zend Framework ships simple, without modules installed, so firstly to build up bare-bones for simple modular app, you will have to preinstall the set of GitHub hosted plugins and modules. Added to the mix, Microsoft is one of the main sponsors of the Zend Framework project, so your company would experience state of the art technologies mash up right away from the beginning of implementing theoretical application project to code stack. All in all, several international associations are awaiting you to enroll to enhance the experience of using Zend Framework 2.

      The older parts of our core are still using ZF1. We are migrating to simpler framework agnostic controllers with 3rd party components.
