Phoenix Framework vs Polymer: What are the differences?
What is Phoenix Framework? Most web frameworks make you choose between speed and a productive environment. Phoenix gives you both. Phoenix is a framework for building HTML5 apps, API backends and distributed systems. Written in Elixir, you get beautiful syntax, productive tooling and a fast runtime.
What is Polymer? A new library built on top of Web Components, designed to leverage the evolving web platform on modern browsers. Polymer is a new type of library for the web, designed to leverage the existing browser infrastructure to provide the encapsulation and extendability currently only available in JS libraries. Polymer is based on a set of future technologies, including Shadow DOM, Custom Elements and Model Driven Views. Currently these technologies are implemented as polyfills or shims, but as browsers adopt these features natively, the platform code that drives Polymer evacipates, leaving only the value-adds.
Phoenix Framework belongs to "Frameworks (Full Stack)" category of the tech stack, while Polymer can be primarily classified under "Front-End Frameworks".
"High performance" is the primary reason why developers consider Phoenix Framework over the competitors, whereas "Web components" was stated as the key factor in picking Polymer.
Phoenix Framework and Polymer are both open source tools. It seems that Polymer with 21.1K GitHub stars and 2K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Phoenix Framework with 13.9K GitHub stars and 1.75K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Phoenix Framework has a broader approval, being mentioned in 73 company stacks & 46 developers stacks; compared to Polymer, which is listed in 41 company stacks and 30 developer stacks.

What tools integrate with Polymer?
The Framework is new but has what it takes to take your apps to the next level, right now rails 5 is beta with ActionCable to make real time but I must say ruby isn't the right tool for doing real time but Elixir is really fast and has great concurrency and other erlang features.
In process of Learning Technics- Studing to know more. I was introduced in a Google event.
Polymer is another Google offering that focuses on Web Components, an up-and-coming collection of technologies that provide web developers with the ability to create customer HTML elements.
Polymer is super future-focused and really great to build in. The biggest plus for us is how its component-focused approach keeps things modular and maintainable. It also makes it really easy to implement material design.
