Description

What is Polymer?

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 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 Topcoat?

TopCoat is made up of base controls, platform specific styles, themes and a build script to stitch them all together.
