      Review ofMaterializeMaterialize

      I've been using materialize and I'm really happy with it, in some months I'm sure it will become one of the best front-end frameworks around the internet, because it's easy and fast to use and to get started with it.

      It also got a nice community of developers that help developing it and finding bugs, as well a translation team, looking to get materialize into the major countries.

      My final review is that is one of the best front-end frameworks I've ever found and get used really fast and it's one of the most comfortable frameworks to use as well.

      Review ofMaterializeMaterialize

      As I've been applying Materialize, I've discovered some limitations.

      For example, the tabs require ids for the content divs. This makes is difficult to create content dynamically.

      The documentation is not accurate.

      To use materializecss, you will need to review the source code often.

      How developers use Bootstrap, Material-UI, and Materialize

      StackShare uses BootstrapBootstrap

      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.

      Material UI provides with a clean, professional looking and very easy to use set of UI components build with React. The few issues we've reported to the developers have been quickly fixed each time. I highly recommend using Material UI for both consumer and enterprise web apps. The styling system in particular is very nice to work with, and allows you to easily add your own brand's look and feel throughout the UI.

      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.

      We like the pure simplicity of Google's Material UI. It is simply too much overhead today to design custom UI styles.
