Polymer vs React Native Desktop: 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; React Native Desktop: React Native for OS X. Build OS X desktop apps using React Native.
Polymer belongs to "Front-End Frameworks" category of the tech stack, while React Native Desktop can be primarily classified under "Cross-Platform Desktop Development".
Polymer and React Native Desktop are both open source tools. It seems that Polymer with 21.1K GitHub stars and 2K forks on GitHub has more adoption than React Native Desktop with 11.2K GitHub stars and 478 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.
