Description

What is Material Design?

Material Design is a unified system that combines theory, resources, and tools for crafting digital experiences.

What is Material Design Lite?

Material Design Lite (MDL) lets you add a Material Design look and feel to your static content websites. It doesn't rely on any JavaScript frameworks or libraries. Optimized for cross-device use, gracefully degrades in older browsers, and offers an experience that is accessible from the get-go.

What is Bootswatch?

Simply download a CSS file and replace the one in Bootstrap. No messing around with hex values.
