Navigation, layout, forms and other components. Undoubtedly those the basis of the interface on every application, and creating each one in compliance with good interface design practices requires knowledge, time and dedication.

Understanding this need, Google created Material Design, a system of guidelines, components and tools with different standards that will guide the team of designers and developers in this challenge.

Even so, creating all those components from scratch while following all the guidelines can hamper project demands and deadlines. Fortunately, we can count on two great libraries based on Material Design that will help during this process:

Material UI: aimed at web applications with React

React Native Paper: intended for the development of mobile interfaces

Following well-defined design and layout standards, both offer a wide choice of components that can be easily introduced into the project. And as if attractive and functional look wasn't enough, it provides a good user experience while allowing customization according to the theme of your application.

Despite being different libraries, they have similar goals and fulfill their purpose: to offer materials for UI development in a customizable, agile and standardized way.

In addition, it is worth noting that Material UI, unlike React Native Paper, has a slightly more robust proposal, bringing more customization possibilities, such as layout tools, spacing, datagrid and others.
