Material Design for Angular vs Semantic UI: What are the differences?

Material Design for Angular: Material Design for AngularJS Apps. Material Design is a specification for a unified system of visual, motion, and interaction design that adapts across different devices. Our goal is to deliver a lean, lightweight set of AngularJS-native UI elements that implement the material design system for use in Angular SPAs; Semantic UI: A UI Component library implemented using a set of specifications designed around natural language. Semantic empowers designers and developers by creating a shared vocabulary for UI.

Material Design for Angular and Semantic UI belong to "Front-End Frameworks" category of the tech stack.

"Ui components" is the primary reason why developers consider Material Design for Angular over the competitors, whereas "Easy to use and looks elegant" was stated as the key factor in picking Semantic UI.

Material Design for Angular and Semantic UI are both open source tools. It seems that Semantic UI with 45.7K GitHub stars and 4.83K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Material Design for Angular with 16.5K GitHub stars and 3.57K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Material Design for Angular has a broader approval, being mentioned in 279 company stacks & 369 developers stacks; compared to Semantic UI, which is listed in 77 company stacks and 50 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Material Design for Angular and Semantic UI?
    Material Design for Bootstrap
    This Bootstrap theme is an easy way to use the new Material Design guidelines by Google in your Bootstrap 3 based application. Just include the theme right after the Bootstrap CSS and include the javascript at the end of your document, everything will be converted to Material Design (paper) style.
    Bootstrap
    Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web.
    Animate.css
    It is a bunch of cool, fun, and cross-browser animations for you to use in your projects. Great for emphasis, home pages, sliders, and general just-add-water-awesomeness.
    Foundation
    Foundation is the most advanced responsive front-end framework in the world. You can quickly prototype and build sites or apps that work on any kind of device with Foundation, which includes layout constructs (like a fully responsive grid), elements and best practices.
    UIkIt
    UIkit gives you a comprehensive collection of HTML, CSS, and JS components which is simple to use, easy to customize and extendable.

    ReactQL is a React + GraphQL front-end starter kit. #JSX is a natural way to think about building UI, and it renders to pure #HTML in the browser and on the server, making it trivial to build server-rendered Single Page Apps. GraphQL via Apollo was chosen for the data layer; #GraphQL makes it simple to request just the data your app needs, and #Apollo takes care of communicating with your API (written in any language; doesn't have to be JavaScript!), caching, and rendering to #React.

    ReactQL is written in TypeScript to provide full types/Intellisense, and pick up hard-to-diagnose goofs that might later show up at runtime. React makes heavy use of Webpack 4 to handle transforming your code to an optimised client-side bundle, and in throws back just enough code needed for the initial render, while seamlessly handling import statements asynchronously as needed, making the payload your user downloads ultimately much smaller than trying to do it by hand.

    React Helmet was chosen to handle <head> content, because it works universally, making it easy to throw back the correct <title> and other tags on the initial render, as well as inject new tags for subsequent client-side views.

    styled-components, Sass, Less and PostCSS were added to give developers a choice of whether to build styles purely in React / JavaScript, or whether to defer to a #css #preprocessor. This is especially useful for interop with UI frameworks like Bootstrap, Semantic UI, Foundation, etc - ReactQL lets you mix and match #css and renders to both a static .css file during bundling as well as generates per-page <style> tags when using #StyledComponents.

    React Router handles routing, because it works both on the server and in the client. ReactQL customises it further by capturing non-200 responses on the server, redirecting or throwing back custom 404 pages as needed.

    Koa is the web server that handles all incoming HTTP requests, because it's fast (TTFB < 5ms, even after fully rendering React), and its natively #async, making it easy to async/await inside routes and middleware.

    Used the concept idea of Material Design from Google for our basic UI. This one is a great implementation source for our Angular Framework.

    We use Semantic UI for our frotend. A heavily customised version of it, but still Semantic UI under the hood.

    Used Semantic UI + Angular2 together with Spring or Node/Express for full stack web application development.

    The main application uses this, it's great and solid base for app development in AngularJS.
