Library Comparison

Comparisons are tough. Differences in problem space, constraints, values, trade-offs, and a whole bunch of other factors come into play that make a true comparison complicated.

Mdash hits the sweet spot of minimal trade-offs and maximum value by relentlessly leveraging standards and offers developers a UI library that is extremely small and compatible, truly easy (no install, no config, no build step), more familiar, and is sophisticated enough to serve as a shared design system across large organizations.

So, although not every UI library has all the same components, those that have matches with Mdash have their markup lined up below to compare.
