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.

What tools integrate with Polymer?
In process of Learning Technics- Studing to know more. I was introduced in a Google event.
Polymer is another Google offering that focuses on Web Components, an up-and-coming collection of technologies that provide web developers with the ability to create customer HTML elements.
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.
