  • Difference between materialize-css and material UI
    2 projects | | 13 Apr 2022
    I went through the home page of materializecss and materialUI. The first one mentions A modern responsive front-end framework based on Material Design and the later one mentions React components that implement Google's Material Design. Both of them implements material design and both of them give me components to use. Where exactly is the difference between both of them?

    It may be worth noting that if you have hammerjs installed and your components are still not rendering correctly to make sure you are using angular material components and not html elements with materialize-css classes.If you are using materialize-css instead of angular material, you will need to add it to your project separately.

    > The fact of the matter was that _servers aren't actually easy_. Caddy v1 tried to give the illusion that it is, but it just caused more problems, really.

    You know, as someone who used Caddy v1 pretty extensively (still probably have it running on some of my homelab boxes), i never really ran into those supposed problems. Maybe they'd manifest in more complex configurations, but as a reverse proxy, file host, web server that's integrated with PHP or even something to allow setting up basicauth, i never found it to be lacking.

    That's not to say that Caddy v2 is bad, just that someone for whom v1 worked perfectly might find it a bit cumbersome to move to the newer version, as the old one is no longer supported. Of course, you can say the same about JDK 8 vs JDK 11+ etc.

    > Also, any time someone brings up the malicious fork "wedge", it saddens me.

    If i recall correctly, it just took the project and rebranded it, which isn't necessarily malicious (for example, aggregating and selling users' data would). That's the nature of open source - anyone who wants to do that, can.

    Of course, i think that the fork is also irrelevant because they couldn't actually be bothered to maintain the fork and nobody cared for it, much like how other projects, like Materialize.css, ended up.

    For example, here's the original:

    Then someone got upset that the project was abandoned (even though they were taking folks Patreon money):

    They created a fork of their own:

    Which promptly died down because there just wasn't enough interest in maintaining it. That's just how things go sometime.
