Polymer vs Susy: What are the differences?

Developers describe Polymer as "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. On the other hand, Susy is detailed as "Custom-built web tools for humans". It is a lightweight grid-layout engine for Sass, designed to simplify and clarify responsive grid layouts without ever getting in your way. You can use Susy with floats, flexbox, tables, or any other CSS technique. You’re the expert, we’re just here to make your job easier.

        Angular 2
        It is a TypeScript-based open-source web application framework. It is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
        Bootstrap
        Bootstrap is the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web.
        Animate.css
