Phoenix Framework vs Rocket: What are the differences?

Phoenix Framework: Most web frameworks make you choose between speed and a productive environment. Phoenix gives you both. Phoenix is a framework for building HTML5 apps, API backends and distributed systems. Written in Elixir, you get beautiful syntax, productive tooling and a fast runtime; 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.

Phoenix Framework and Rocket can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

"High performance" is the top reason why over 100 developers like Phoenix Framework, while over 2 developers mention "Uses all the rust features extensively" as the leading cause for choosing Rocket.

Phoenix Framework and Rocket are both open source tools. It seems that Phoenix Framework with 13.9K GitHub stars and 1.75K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Rocket with 7.29K GitHub stars and 489 GitHub forks.

Decisions about Phoenix Framework and Rocket

#rust #elixir So am creating a messenger with voice call capabilities app which the user signs up using phone number and so at first i wanted to use Actix so i learned Rust so i thought to myself because well its first i felt its a bit immature to use actix web even though some companies are using Rust but we cant really say the full potential of Rust in a full scale app for example in Discord both Elixir and Rust are used meaning there is equal need for them but for Elixir so many companies use it from Whatsapp, Wechat, etc and this means something for Rust is not ready to go full scale we cant assume all this possibilities when it come Rust. So i decided to go the Erlang way after alot of Thinking so Do you think i made the right decision?Am 19 year programmer so i assume am not experienced as you so your answer or comment would really valuable to me
