Material-UI vs MD Bootstrap: What are the differences?

Material-UI: React components for faster and easier web development. It is a comprehensive guide for visual, motion, and interaction design across platforms and devices; MD Bootstrap: Free and Powerful UI Kit. It is a UI kit built with an aim to cut the time developers need to create their websites by taking all the best features from vanilla Bootstrap and enhancing them with a distinctive design from Google.

Material-UI and MD Bootstrap can be categorized as "UI Components" tools.

Some of the features offered by Material-UI are:

  • Tables
  • Forms
  • Snackbars

On the other hand, MD Bootstrap provides the following key features:

  • Fully responsive
  • Detailed documentation
  • Tutorials

Material-UI and MD Bootstrap are both open source tools. It seems that Material-UI with 50.5K GitHub stars and 12K forks on GitHub has more adoption than MD Bootstrap with 7.12K GitHub stars and 970 GitHub forks.

Decisions about Material-UI and MD Bootstrap

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.
