Material-UI vs BootsFaces: What are the differences?

Developers describe Material-UI as "React components for faster and easier web development". It is a comprehensive guide for visual, motion, and interaction design across platforms and devices. On the other hand, BootsFaces is detailed as "Lets you develop Front-end Enterprise Applications fast and easy". It is a powerful JSF framework that takes the best from Bootstrap and jQuery UI to let develop well-designed responsive state-of-the-art next-gen Front-end Enterprise Applications fast and easy supporting HTML5.

Material-UI and BootsFaces are primarily classified as "UI Components" and "Front-End Frameworks" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Material-UI are:

  • Tables
  • Forms
  • Snackbars

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

  • Design your application quickly
  • Simple to use
  • Ready for the cloud

Material-UI and BootsFaces are both open source tools. Material-UI with 50.5K GitHub stars and 12K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than BootsFaces with 239 GitHub stars and 83 GitHub forks.

Decisions about BootsFaces and Material-UI

Fonts and typography are fun. Material Design is a framework (developed by Google) that basically geeks out on how to assemble your typographical elements together into a design language. If you're into fonts and typography, it's fantastic. It provides a theming engine, reusable components, and can pull different user interfaces together under a common design paradigm. I'd highly recommend looking into Borries Schwesinger's book "The Form Book" if you're going to be working with Material UI or are otherwise new to component design.

        What are some alternatives to BootsFaces and Material-UI?
        Bootstrap
        Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web.
        PrimeFaces
        It is a popular open source framework for JavaServer Faces featuring over 100 components, touch optimized mobilekit, client side validation, theme engine and more.
        Material Design for Angular
        Material Design is a specification for a unified system of visual, motion, and interaction design that adapts across different devices. Our goal is to deliver a lean, lightweight set of AngularJS-native UI elements that implement the material design system for use in Angular SPAs.
        Animate.css
        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.
        Tailwind CSS
        Tailwind is different from frameworks like Bootstrap, Foundation, or Bulma in that it's not a UI kit. It doesn't have a default theme, and there are no build-in UI components. It comes with a menu of predesigned widgets to build your site with, but doesn't impose design decisions that are difficult to undo.
