Re: Web-App (Angular 6): Choice of Design Framework - Angular Material vs bootswatch and ng-bootstrap)

Hello Anwesh,

I would say we should use Angular Material library for consistency and
below reasons:

   - We already have our self-service app last year built on angular
   material itself so we should follow.
   - Another reason is its official Angular library and there can be
   chances in future that bootswatch or ng-bootstrap might discontinue support
   or don't add further modules.
   - I don't see angular material support mentioned on both bootswatch
   <https://bootswatch.com/> and ng-bootstrap
   <https://github.com/ng-bootstrap/ng-bootstrap> github repos. Might be
   there is some add-on package which i am not aware of.

I saw the initial hosted project and have some feedback to speed-up the

   - Define the wire-frames or some sample mock-up ideas how we want our
   new web-app to look like.
   - Also, wire-frames for some important pages like Client Page, Dashboard
   - Use of Data-table as in our current application we have a lot many
   views using data-tables. @Ed Cable <edcable@xxxxxxxxx> If you can give
   some feedback improvement we needed from the current look we have so we
   in-corporate from start and maintain same data-table in entire project.
   - Make sure you re-use as much code as possible by making proper
   - Go through each page on current community-app to find what all pages
   are sharing same modules like I mentioned of data-table. This will help you
   re-use code and fasten the development cycle.

<pranjal.b.goswami@xxxxxxxxx>  Please add more suggestions you have from
your experience or something I might not be right here. Let's try to help
out both Anwesh and Abhay as much possible from our available time, as I
can see they have a big task in front of them, which I am positive that
they can take over :)
