Material Design Lite

CSS (+ some Javascript) framework, implementing Google's material design for static web pages.

Can be used for plain websites without requiring a full blown Javascript framework, unlike the (also excellent) Polymer paper elements Archive , or Angular material Archive .

Prelimiary impression:

I would recommend against using it at this stage, for a couple of reasons:

  • It is much less complete than you might expect from a CSS framework. There is little support for forms elements, for example.

  • Markup is somewhat akward.

  • It does not play nicely with livereload and will constantly scroll the page to the top.

  • Using it together with a JavaScript framework requires some care, because you constantly need to "upgrade" elements with MDL.

Some other Material Design CSS + JS Frameworks with partial pending release:

Materializecss Archive

Material-ui Archive

Material Design for Bootstrap Archive (note that this is incomplete, and free only for non-commercial projects)

"Paper" Bootstrap theme by Bootswatch Archive (we also have a card about it)

Does your version of Ruby on Rails still receive security updates?
Rails LTS provides security patches for unsupported versions of Ruby on Rails (2.3, 3.2, 4.2 and 5.2).
