Ant Design vs Material-UI: What are the differences?
Ant Design: A set of high-quality React components. An enterprise-class UI design language and React-based implementation. Graceful UI components out of the box, base on React Component. A npm + webpack + babel + dora + dva development framework; 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.
"Polished and enterprisey look and feel" is the primary reason why developers consider Ant Design over the competitors, whereas "React" was stated as the key factor in picking Material-UI.
Ant Design and Material-UI are both open source tools. It seems that Material-UI with 48.1K GitHub stars and 10.7K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Ant Design with 47.8K GitHub stars and 16.8K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Material-UI has a broader approval, being mentioned in 67 company stacks & 77 developers stacks; compared to Ant Design, which is listed in 22 company stacks and 33 developer stacks.
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.
