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


There is an official *material design colour tool* using which we can
generate themes based on the official material palette as well as our
custom colour choices here:
(*Ref:* https://material.io/design/color/#tools-for-picking-colors)

I have created a few examples of themes using it and would request you to
give your opinion regarding them as to which theme we should use as the
official default theme for the new MifosX web app. You could also use the
material design colour tool to generate any other theme and share with us
if I missed something.

*Based on the new skin of community app:*

*Based on the logo of Mifos:*
Blue theme -
Green theme -
Blue/Green theme combinations -

*Based on the material palette:*
Blue theme -
Green theme -
Blue/Green theme -
