    How developers use Material-UI and Skeleton
    Avatar of Cloudcraft
    Cloudcraft uses Material-UIMaterial-UI

    Material UI provides Cloudcraft.co with a clean, professional looking and very easy to use set of UI components build with React. The few issues we've reported to the developers have been quickly fixed each time. I highly recommend using Material UI for both consumer and enterprise web apps. The styling system in particular is very nice to work with, and allows you to easily add your own brand's look and feel throughout the UI.

    Like Bootstrap, It offers the same CSS framework service (Which I prefer to say cheatsheet ;)) but less complex and cleaner look and to the point.

    I used it for some private stuff lately where I only needed a grid and was looking for the leanest framework there is.

    We like the pure simplicity of Google's Material UI. It is simply too much overhead today to design custom UI styles.
