Animate.css vs Material-UI: What are the differences?

Animate.css : A library of CSS animations. It is a bunch of cool, fun, and cross-browser animations for you to use in your projects. Great for emphasis, home pages, sliders, and general just-add-water-awesomeness; Material-UI: React components for faster and easier web development. Build your own design system, or start with Material Design. React components for faster and easier web development. Build your own design system, or start with Material Design.

Animate.css belongs to "CSS Pre-processors / Extensions" category of the tech stack, while Material-UI can be primarily classified under "Front-End Frameworks".

Animate.css and Material-UI are both open source tools. It seems that Animate.css with 61.2K GitHub stars and 13K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Material-UI with 49.4K GitHub stars and 11.4K GitHub forks.

Decisions about Animate.css and Material-UI

Fonts and typography are fun. Material Design is a framework (developed by Google) that basically geeks out on how to assemble your typographical elements together into a design language. If you're into fonts and typography, it's fantastic. It provides a theming engine, reusable components, and can pull different user interfaces together under a common design paradigm. I'd highly recommend looking into Borries Schwesinger's book "The Form Book" if you're going to be working with Material UI or are otherwise new to component design.
