Polymer vs Primer: What are the differences?
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; Primer: CSS toolkit and guidelines that power GitHub. Primer is the basecoat of GitHub, made by nerds just like you who share a passion for HTML and CSS.
Polymer and Primer can be primarily classified as "Front-End Frameworks" tools.
"Web components" is the primary reason why developers consider Polymer over the competitors, whereas "simple" was stated as the key factor in picking Primer.
Polymer and Primer are both open source tools. It seems that Polymer with 21.1K GitHub stars and 2K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Primer with 8.42K GitHub stars and 621 GitHub forks.

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.
