Polymer vs Vuetify: 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, Vuetify is detailed as "Material Component Framework for VueJS 2". Vuetify is a component framework for Vue.js 2. It aims to provide clean, semantic and reusable components that make building your application a breeze. Vuetify utilizes Google's Material Design design pattern, taking cues from other popular frameworks such as Materialize.css, Material Design Lite, Semantic UI and Bootstrap 4.

Polymer and Vuetify can be primarily classified as "Front-End Frameworks" tools.

"Web components" is the top reason why over 49 developers like Polymer, while over 7 developers mention "Wide range of components and active development" as the leading cause for choosing Vuetify.

Polymer and Vuetify are both open source tools. Polymer with 21.1K GitHub stars and 2K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Vuetify with 20K GitHub stars and 2.32K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Polymer has a broader approval, being mentioned in 42 company stacks & 32 developers stacks; compared to Vuetify, which is listed in 37 company stacks and 36 developer stacks.

        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.
