PostCSS vs Vuetify: What are the differences?
PostCSS: Transform CSS with JS plugins. PostCSS is a tool for transforming CSS with JS plugins. These plugins can support variables and mixins, transpile future CSS syntax, inline images, and more; Vuetify: 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.
PostCSS and Vuetify are primarily classified as "CSS Pre-processors / Extensions" and "Front-End Frameworks" tools respectively.
"The "babel" of CSS" is the primary reason why developers consider PostCSS over the competitors, whereas "Wide range of components and active development" was stated as the key factor in picking Vuetify.

PostCSS essentially allows you to set up your own CSS preprocessor with the features that matter to you. It has a modular plugin-based architecture, which means that if someone comes up with a useful new feature, you can easily add it to your stack as a PostCSS plugin. PreCSS and PostCSS-cssnext are some of my go-to plugins.
PostCSS handles compiling node-based CSS libraries, including BassCSS (the whole site is only ~85 lines of custom CSS). It also does auto-vendor-prefixing and support for CSS variables.
We wrote a lot of flexbox and css that needed prefixing. PostCSS + Webpack was the best option here.
We use Vuetify because we needed something that back end devs could get up to speed with quickly
