Material Design for Angular vs Stylus: 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; Stylus: Expressive, robust, feature-rich CSS language built for nodejs. Stylus is a revolutionary new language, providing an efficient, dynamic, and expressive way to generate CSS. Supporting both an indented syntax and regular CSS style.

Material Design for Angular belongs to "Front-End Frameworks" category of the tech stack, while Stylus can be primarily classified under "CSS Pre-processors / Extensions".

Advice on Material Design for Angular and Stylus

Needs advice
on
Stylus
Sass
and
PostCSS

Originally, I was going to start using Sass with Parcel, but then I learned about Stylus, which looked interesting because it can get the property values of something directly instead of through variables, and PostCSS, which looked interesting because you can customize your Pre/Post-processing. Which tool would you recommend?

PostCSS

You're not correct with saying "vs Postcss". You're using Less/Sass/Stylus/... to produce "CSS" (maybe extended means it has some future features) and then in any case PostCSS will play (it is shipped with Parcel/NextJS/CRA/...)
