Re: GwtMaterialDesign vs gwt-polymer-elements

gwt-polymer-elements and Polymer in general is about extending the web, it does provide a set of useful elements but it also allows you  to create your own customizable components with behavior, style...

GwtMaterialDesign is the look and feel of material design brought to GWT widgets, with some nice additions.

Hi all,

I've got a 3 year old enterprise GWT app which also has a mobile app based on GWT. Our current design style is based on Bootstrap. As things change, I'd like to freshen the UX by using Material Design. I've seen 2 libraries: GwtMaterialDesign and gwt-polymer-elements. 

From what I can see:
- Both showcases look great, esp both seem to have an "enterprise" class table/grid control.
- GwtMaterialDesign: Read quite positive things in terms of community.
- gwt-polymer-elements: By Vaadin which are quite active in the GWT world now, based on "real" Polymer elements and the new GWT 2.8 elemental (?)

Would be great if anyone could comment on using either of them as I think once we've decided for one of the libraries, it will be hard to switch.

Any feedback would be great!
