Animate.css vs Polymer: What are the differences?

What is Animate.css ? A library of CSS animations. It is a bunch of cool, fun, and cross-browser animations for you to use in your projects. Great for emphasis, home pages, sliders, and general just-add-water-awesomeness.

What is Polymer? A new library built on top of Web Components, designed to leverage the evolving web platform on modern browsers. Polymer is a new type of library for the web, designed to leverage the existing browser infrastructure to provide the encapsulation and extendability currently only available in JS libraries. Polymer is based on a set of future technologies, including Shadow DOM, Custom Elements and Model Driven Views. Currently these technologies are implemented as polyfills or shims, but as browsers adopt these features natively, the platform code that drives Polymer evacipates, leaving only the value-adds.

Animate.css belongs to "CSS Pre-processors / Extensions" category of the tech stack, while Polymer can be primarily classified under "Front-End Frameworks".

Animate.css and Polymer are both open source tools. It seems that Animate.css with 61.2K GitHub stars and 13K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Polymer with 21.1K GitHub stars and 2.01K GitHub forks.
