Material-UI vs reactstrap: 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; reactstrap: Easy to use React Bootstrap 4 components compatible with React. It provides prebuilt Bootstrap 4 components that allow a great deal of flexibility and prebuilt validation. This allows us to quickly build beautiful forms that are guaranteed to impress and provide an intuitive user experience.

Material-UI belongs to "UI Components" category of the tech stack, while reactstrap can be primarily classified under "Front-End Frameworks".

Material-UI and reactstrap are both open source tools. It seems that Material-UI with 50.9K GitHub stars and 12.2K forks on GitHub has more adoption than reactstrap with 8.26K GitHub stars and 936 GitHub forks.

Decisions about Material-UI and reactstrap

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.
