Material-UI vs Open Iconic: What are the differences?

What is Material-UI? React components for faster and easier web development. It is a comprehensive guide for visual, motion, and interaction design across platforms and devices.

What is Open Iconic? *An open source icon set with 223 marks in SVG, webfont and raster formats *. It is the open source sibling of Iconic. It is a hyper-legible collection of 223 icons with a tiny footprint—ready to use with Bootstrap and Foundation.

Material-UI and Open Iconic can be primarily classified as "UI Components" tools.

Some of the features offered by Material-UI are:

  • Tables
  • Forms
  • Snackbars

On the other hand, Open Iconic provides the following key features:

  • Bootstrap and Foundation ready
  • Hyper-legible
  • Super small file size

Material-UI and Open Iconic are both open source tools. It seems that Material-UI with 50.5K GitHub stars and 12K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Open Iconic with 3.02K GitHub stars and 320 GitHub forks.

Decisions about Material-UI and Open Iconic

Fonts and typography are fun. Material Design is a framework (developed by Google) that basically geeks out on how to assemble your typographical elements together into a design language. If you're into fonts and typography, it's fantastic. It provides a theming engine, reusable components, and can pull different user interfaces together under a common design paradigm. I'd highly recommend looking into Borries Schwesinger's book "The Form Book" if you're going to be working with Material UI or are otherwise new to component design.
