Materialize


Materialize is a responsive front-end framework created with CSS, JavaScript and HTML, which is based on Material Design (Material Design was developed by Google and made its first appearance in Android 5.0 Lollipop). The framework has reusable UI components that help to build consistent, functional and attractive web pages and web applications, while adhering to modern web design principles such as: browser portability, device independence, and graceful degradation.

The main purpose of the Materialize framework is to refine animations and transitions, in order to provide a smoother experience for users and also for developers.

Advantages

  • Materialize contains in-built responsive design
  • It contains standard CSS with minimal footprint
  • Materialize is an open-source framework
  • It was created to be minimal and flat
  • Materialize is a cross-browser framework and can be used to create reusable web components
  • It has an inbuilt responsive designing feature, so that the created website will redesign itself according to the size of the device
  • Materialize supports shadows and bold colors, which remain uniform across various platforms and devices
  • The framework is easy to use by developers

Disadvantages

  • The extensive use of animations, such as: drop shadow, color fill or transform/  translate transitions require "powerful" phones or laptops
  • In some cases it's hard to distinguish interactive elements, if these are not carefully designed
  • Because it promotes the use of vibrant colors and images in its spec, it can be distracting
  • The Materialize framework emphasizes screen real estate over clarity, and clever design over usability
