Polymer vs Vue CLI: 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 Vue CLI? Standard Tooling for Vue.js Development. Vue CLI aims to be the standard tooling baseline for the Vue ecosystem. It ensures the various build tools work smoothly together with sensible defaults so you can focus on writing your app instead of spending days wrangling with config.

Polymer belongs to "Front-End Frameworks" category of the tech stack, while Vue CLI can be primarily classified under "Javascript Utilities & Libraries".

Polymer and Vue CLI are both open source tools. It seems that Vue CLI with 22K GitHub stars and 3.8K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Polymer with 21.1K GitHub stars and 2.01K GitHub forks.

USERcycle, True Tradies, and AX Semantics are some of the popular companies that use Polymer, whereas Vue CLI is used by La Cupula Music SL, Evaluar, and Auterion. Polymer has a broader approval, being mentioned in 59 company stacks & 240 developers stacks; compared to Vue CLI, which is listed in 3 company stacks and 8 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Polymer and Vue CLI?
      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 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
      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.
      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.
