Toolkit vs UIkIt: What are the differences?

Developers describe Toolkit 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. On the other hand, UIkIt is detailed as "A lightweight and modular front-end framework for developing fast and powerful web interfaces". UIkit gives you a comprehensive collection of HTML, CSS, and JS components which is simple to use, easy to customize and extendable.

Toolkit and UIkIt can be primarily classified as "Front-End Frameworks" tools.

Some of the features offered by Toolkit are:

  • Mobile First
  • Responsive Design
  • Semantic Markup

On the other hand, UIkIt provides the following key features:

  • LESS - UIkit is developed in LESS to write well-structured, extendable code which is easy to maintain.
  • Components - A collection of small, responsive components using consistent and conflict-free naming conventions.
  • Customizer - UIkit's very basic style can be extended with themes and is easy to customize to create your own look.

Toolkit and UIkIt are both open source tools. UIkIt with 14.7K GitHub stars and 2.11K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Toolkit with 1.11K GitHub stars and 121 GitHub forks.

          Provides common user interface like dialogs, menus, etc. Is modular and hight customisable. A part from the grid system, is not used directly, but has as layer of abstraction build with web components, and typescript as far as possible with the time and working constraints, to be reused in other projects.

          UI Kit provides so many great features out of the box. It provides all the tools to build a rich interface with very little configuration. Many of the modules are well documented and are relevant to the common trends we are seeing on websites today.
