Polymer vs Clarity Design System: 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 Clarity Design System? UI controls and design system for Angular. UX guidelines, HTML/CSS framework, and Angular components working together to craft exceptional experiences. Start building with our HTML/CSS framework and rapidly go from prototype to production.

Polymer and Clarity Design System are primarily classified as "Front-End Frameworks" and "Open Source Design" tools respectively.

Polymer is an open source tool with 21.1K GitHub stars and 2.01K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Polymer's open source repository on GitHub.

      What are some alternatives to Polymer and Clarity Design System?
      React
      Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
      Angular
      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.
      Material Design for Angular
      Material Design is a specification for a unified system of visual, motion, and interaction design that adapts across different devices. Our goal is to deliver a lean, lightweight set of AngularJS-native UI elements that implement the material design system for use in Angular SPAs.
      Animate.css
      It is a bunch of cool, fun, and cross-browser animations for you to use in your projects. Great for emphasis, home pages, sliders, and general just-add-water-awesomeness.
