Material Design Frameworks For Websites

Material Design Frameworks For Websites

Google was successfully able to create a concept that has become universally known as Material Design when they took a big step to combine technology, science, and design principles. This new design concept has created massive excitement regarding aspects such as its colors, layout principles, and animated elements.

Material Design has since been defined as a visual concept that works to combine science and technology with the traditional rules and principles of classic design. As this concept continues to rise in popularity, so too do all of the resources and tools that are directly related to it.

Google is seeking to introduce a sense of uniformity to its UI on any and all platforms, ranging from Android to the world wide web itself. The company operates its own Polymer Project, which is a process that focuses on Material Design throughout all of the concept’s various web-based components.

The Polymer Project has also played a major role in not only the overall development of Material Design, but also in the design concepts of Material Design. There is a catch, however, as the Polymer Project is still being considered as being in “early developer preview,” meaning it is not yet ready to be fully produced.

There are many different third-party web UI frameworks that have launched in an attempt to bring the Material Design concept to the world wide web’s user interface. However, it’s important to note that these frameworks are, in no way, associated with Google. This post will go into discussion regarding a general round-up of these different Material Design frameworks.
