Flask vs Materialize: What are the differences?

Developers describe Flask as "a microframework for Python based on Werkzeug, Jinja 2 and good intentions". Flask is intended for getting started very quickly and was developed with best intentions in mind. On the other hand, Materialize is detailed as "A modern responsive front-end framework based on Material Design". A CSS Framework based on material design.

Flask belongs to "Microframeworks (Backend)" category of the tech stack, while Materialize can be primarily classified under "Front-End Frameworks".

"Lightweight", "Python" and "Minimal" are the key factors why developers consider Flask; whereas "Google material design", "Responsive" and "Easy to use" are the primary reasons why Materialize is favored.

Flask and Materialize are both open source tools. It seems that Flask with 44.8K GitHub stars and 12.6K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Materialize with 36K GitHub stars and 4.79K GitHub forks.

reddit, Lyft, and MIT are some of the popular companies that use Flask, whereas Materialize is used by The3ballsoft, GeoLytix, and Avhana Health. Flask has a broader approval, being mentioned in 502 company stacks & 509 developers stacks; compared to Materialize, which is listed in 46 company stacks and 53 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Flask and Materialize?
    Django
    Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
    Tornado
    By using non-blocking network I/O, Tornado can scale to tens of thousands of open connections, making it ideal for long polling, WebSockets, and other applications that require a long-lived connection to each user.
    ExpressJS
    Express is a minimal and flexible node.js web application framework, providing a robust set of features for building single and multi-page, and hybrid web applications.
    Node.js
    Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
    React
    Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.

    Reviews of Flask and Materialize
    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.

    Review ofFlaskFlask

    Flask is a light, yet powerful Python web framework perfect for quickly building smaller web applications. It's a "micro-framework" that's easy to learn and simple to use, so it's perfect for those new to web development as well as those looking to rapidly develop a web application.

    The Glitter page: https://gitter.im/Dogfalo/materialize provided excellent support though. Kudos!

    I use Flask for times when I need to create a REST API that interfaces with other Python code, or there is no specific reason why I'd want to use Node.JS. I prefer Flask because of its small learning curve, allowing me to get started coding as quickly as possible

    This lightweight web framework enables quick REST API development while enabling easy clustering, and the usage of multiple worker processes required to scale the REST API service to meet high volume requirements.
