Description

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 Flat UI?

Flat UI is a beautiful theme for Bootstrap. We have redesigned many of its components to look flat in every pixel.

What is Pure?

Pure is meant to be a starting point for every website or web app. We take care of all the CSS work that every site needs, without making it look cookie-cutter.
