    Review ofMaterializeMaterialize

    I've been using materialize and I'm really happy with it, in some months I'm sure it will become one of the best front-end frameworks around the internet, because it's easy and fast to use and to get started with it.

    It also got a nice community of developers that help developing it and finding bugs, as well a translation team, looking to get materialize into the major countries.

    My final review is that is one of the best front-end frameworks I've ever found and get used really fast and it's one of the most comfortable frameworks to use as well.

    Review ofMaterializeMaterialize

    As I've been applying Materialize, I've discovered some limitations.

    For example, the tabs require ids for the content divs. This makes is difficult to create content dynamically.

    The documentation is not accurate.

    To use materializecss, you will need to review the source code often.

    The Glitter page: https://gitter.im/Dogfalo/materialize provided excellent support though. Kudos!
