Flat UI vs Polymer: What are the differences?

What is Flat UI? Free Bootstrap Framework and Theme. Flat UI is a beautiful theme for Bootstrap. We have redesigned many of its components to look flat in every pixel.

What is Polymer? A new library built on top of Web Components, designed to leverage the evolving web platform on modern browsers. 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.

Flat UI and Polymer belong to "Front-End Frameworks" category of the tech stack.

Flat UI and Polymer are both open source tools. It seems that Polymer with 21.1K GitHub stars and 2K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Flat UI with 14.5K GitHub stars and 2.46K GitHub forks.

AX Semantics, USERcycle, and Telemetry are some of the popular companies that use Polymer, whereas Flat UI is used by Apexure, Leonis Holding, and SkyQuest. Polymer has a broader approval, being mentioned in 42 company stacks & 32 developers stacks; compared to Flat UI, which is listed in 4 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

        In process of Learning Technics- Studing to know more. I was introduced in a Google event.

        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.
