Your two examples are not equivalent. For the Mojolicious app to do the same thing you're doing in the Dancer 2 app, it would look like this:

#!/usr/bin/env perl use Mojolicious::Lite -signatures; get '/hello/:name' => sub ($c) { $c->render(text => 'Why, hello there ' . $c->param('name')); }; app->start;

Spruced up to provide the same functionality as the Dancer 2 app, the code looks substantially similar. The two frameworks do have many useful differences. But at the heart of it they're both lightweight web frameworks, and both are quite capable. I prefer Mojolicious too, but some of that is due to familiarity and having used it in production a number of times. I've heard people whine about the Mojolicious framework coming with "too much stuff." I disagree with this premise; it comes complete, and useful, and still in a tarball under 800KB.

    I just copied from both sites directly. Also, you're free to disagree obviously. I just wanted to share my experience. I use Dancer2, so I have decided for myself. Sounds like you have also. One thing that seems to be a common theme is that poeple tend to stop at the one they try first. I think that's an important and interesting effect. That tells you for many, they are equivalent in terms of meeting needs - i.e., "quick start".
