NativeBase vs Skeleton: What are the differences?

Developers describe NativeBase as "Experience the awesomeness of React Native without the pain". NativeBase is a free and open source framework that enables developers to build high-quality mobile apps using React Native iOS and Android apps with a fusion of ES6. NativeBase builds a layer on top of React Native that provides you with basic set of components for mobile application development. This helps you to build world-class application experiences on native platforms. On the other hand, Skeleton is detailed as "A Beautiful Boilerplate for Responsive, Mobile-Friendly Development". Skeleton is a small collection of CSS files that can help you rapidly develop sites that look beautiful at any size, be it a 17" laptop screen or an iPhone.
