/ Polymer


Polymer is an open source web framework made by Google. It's build on top of the web component specification and provides an easy and rich API to create and style reusable components for the web.


Next to the framework Polymer provides its custom component set called Polymer-Paper that contains an implementation of the Material Design style guide for the web. Polymer-Paper contains several web components like buttons, textfields or tabs that all match the Material Design UI and can simply be used in any web project.


You can find a good overview of all components that are part of Polymer-Paper in the Element Catalog that is offered by the Polymer team. This catalog includes demos and documentation, too.
