Google Material Design

Seriously I am not Android Fan, rather I had a experience of using Sony’s OS (don’t know name), Symbian, iOS, Android and now finally settled on Windows. Yes that’s true, I use Windows 8.1 in my mobile and liked it due to its Simplicity. Anyways, few weeks back while developing an android application, I got a mobile from my colleague to test what I was working on. Interestingly, the mobile has Android’s new mobile operating system Lollipop. I noticed that there are lot of new improvements in the UI and it has nice smooth animation effects. As a curiosity, I tried to explore more about the design and stumbled upon – Google Material Design.

Google Material Design is a new design standards set by google for Lollipop’s look & feel. The site has detailed documentation over how the new design is different from the earlier one. It is filled with do’s and don’ts which are must for every Android developer.

After going through the documentation, I was curious whether there is equivalent version available for Web based application. Naturally, I started to look for the options on big brother (yeah, google search). The search led me to another interesting project – Materialize. This is an alternative to popular Bootstrap framework and is much better in terms of look & feel (I read someone has created material design for bootstrap). The site has sections for CSS, Components, JavaScript and is well supported by examples.

Do explore more.

Hi this is Yogesh, welcome to my world. Being passionate about learning new technologies and building frameworks, I end up spending most of my time in front of computer. But over last few months, I realised apart from being good coder and designer (Yes I am) I have something hidden in me. And thats called ART.
