Re: Web-App (Angular 6): Choice of Design Framework - Angular Material vs bootswatch and ng-bootstrap)
I understand your point. We are using https://bootswatch.com/materia/ for
overriding the common bootstrap.css properties. In our case it shouldn't be
of much difference. It is just a material wrapper over common bootstrap.css
As about the point of using Angular Material. It is just to give material
look to components like tables,tabs which comes with its own materialize
css properties. As we already have material look by bootswatch it doesn't
add much to the material effect. Using https://bootswatch.com/materia/
will help maintaining the overall material look of the web app while using
only angular-material won't give that look.
We can use angular-material for use cases if necessary but the UI we wrote
is less dependent on angular material library as we are using simple
material bootstrap components for it.
I will host the link with updated pages today itself.
