Polymer vs Pure: What are the differences?
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.
What is Pure? A set of small, responsive CSS modules that you can use in every web project. Pure is meant to be a starting point for every website or web app. We take care of all the CSS work that every site needs, without making it look cookie-cutter.
Polymer and Pure can be categorized as "Front-End Frameworks" tools.
"Web components" is the top reason why over 49 developers like Polymer, while over 12 developers mention "Lightweight" as the leading cause for choosing Pure.

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.
