Primer vs Toolkit: What are the differences?

Developers describe Primer as "CSS toolkit and guidelines that power GitHub". Primer is the basecoat of GitHub, made by nerds just like you who share a passion for HTML and CSS. On the other hand, Toolkit is detailed as "Extensible front-end HTML, CSS, and JavaScript user interface components for the responsive, mobile, and modern web". Toolkit makes use of the latest and greatest technology. This includes HTML5 for semantics, CSS3 for animations and styles, Sass for CSS pre-processing, Gulp for task and package management, and powerful new browser APIs for the JavaScript layer.

Primer and Toolkit belong to "Front-End Frameworks" category of the tech stack.

Primer and Toolkit are both open source tools. It seems that Primer with 8.42K GitHub stars and 621 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Toolkit with 1.11K GitHub stars and 121 GitHub forks.
