Impulse vs Material: What are the differences?

Developers describe Impulse as "Dynamic JS Animations for the Mobile Web". Create animations that flow naturally from the user's movements. Rather than animating properties for a set amount of time, impulse takes a start position, end position, and velocity. On the other hand, Material is detailed as "A Graphics Framework for Material Design in Swift". Express your creativity with Material, an animation and graphics framework for Google's Material Design and Apple's Flat UI in Swift.

Impulse and Material can be categorized as "Mobile Prototyping & Interaction Design" tools.

Some of the features offered by Impulse are:

  • Springing
  • Accelerating
  • Decelerating

On the other hand, Material provides the following key features:

  • Fully Configurable UI Components
  • Grid System For Complex UIs
  • Layout Library To Simplify AutoLayout

Impulse and Material are both open source tools. It seems that Material with 11K GitHub stars and 1.21K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Impulse with 1.63K GitHub stars and 77 GitHub forks.
