What is Bootstrap?

Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web.

What is 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.

What is Polymer?

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.

        Leanstack was on Bootstrap 2. Chose this because it is wildly popular, so it’s active, has been used a lot in production, and has a ton of features. Anything you need to do from a UI perspective, there’s likely a plugin for it already part of the library. Haven’t tried the others, but we're happy with BS.

        For StackShare, we upgraded to Bootstrap 3. I don’t like that they changed the name of columns, essentially breaking the grid layout for Bootstrap 2 and below, so that was a real pain to update. I hope they don’t do that again. Once we have more bandwidth, we’re totally going to decouple our markup from Bootstrap.

        Bootstrap is a framework to help you design websites faster and easier. It includes HTML and CSS based design templates for typography, forms, buttons, tables, navigation, modals, image carousels, etc. It also gives you support for JavaScript plugins. Bootstrap's responsive CSS adjusts to phones, tablets, and desktops Bootstrap is compatible with all modern browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, and Opera)

        We started with a bootstrap based template and then completely rewrote it due to poor design of the template. Using boostrap properly was a great experience - once you learn it and use it properly, it's simple to use and very good at being responsive and adapting to the various screen view.

        I simply bought a "job board" template for the website, which is written using Bootstrap 2. I'm hoping to upgrade the site to Boostrap 3 when I'll have a time.

        Я просто купил шаблон для доски вакансий, написанный на Boostrap 2. Когда будет время перепишу все на Bootstrap 3.

        With the advancement in CSS, Bootstrap is creating new milestones when it comes to minimising our CSS codes. So elegant and beautiful yet easy and convenient to use once you go through all the classes and its elements. In addition, its JS function is impressive too.

        Polymer is super future-focused and really great to build in. The biggest plus for us is how its component-focused approach keeps things modular and maintainable. It also makes it really easy to implement material design.

        Used the concept idea of Material Design from Google for our basic UI. This one is a great implementation source for our Angular Framework.
