Foundation for Apps vs Polymer: What are the differences?
What is Foundation for Apps? Angular-powered framework for building powerful responsive web apps, from your friends at ZURB. Foundation for Apps is a framework you can use to build better, more polished single-page web applications that work across many devices. We’ve taken what we’ve learned from building the original Foundation framework to build an entirely new framework just for web apps.
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.
Foundation for Apps and Polymer belong to "Front-End Frameworks" category of the tech stack.
Foundation for Apps 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 Foundation for Apps with 1.65K GitHub stars and 236 GitHub forks.

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.
