Material-UI vs PHP-MVC: What are the differences?
What is Material-UI? React components for faster and easier web development. Build your own design system, or start with Material Design. React components for faster and easier web development. Build your own design system, or start with Material Design.
What is PHP-MVC? Simple and easy to understand MVC skeleton application. This project is - by intention - NOT a full framework, it's a bare-bone structure, written in purely native PHP ! The php-mvc skeleton tries to be the extremely slimmed down opposite of big frameworks like Zend2, Symfony or Laravel.
Material-UI and PHP-MVC are primarily classified as "Front-End Frameworks" and "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools respectively.
Material-UI and PHP-MVC are both open source tools. Material-UI with 48.6K GitHub stars and 11K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than PHP-MVC with 1.25K GitHub stars and 494 GitHub forks.
DeveloperTown, Ratio, and Chattermill are some of the popular companies that use Material-UI, whereas PHP-MVC is used by Digimedia ENVISION, Sequoia Waste Solutions, and BetRocket. Material-UI has a broader approval, being mentioned in 69 company stacks & 80 developers stacks; compared to PHP-MVC, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.
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.
