Learn about how to closely study the code of a component library. Learn about the pros and cons of the two example libraries
- [Instructor] After selecting a component library…through some high level evaluation,…we need to actually try it to study its quality…in Microscope and see whether it really fits our needs.…We're going to get our hands dirty with two candidates:…Material Kit and Material UI.…Both are fairly popular and active.…Of course, it's impractical to try…every single component and API in the library.…The solution is to dive into just a few checkpoints…that are most fundamental and familiar to us.…
The checkpoints I'm going to use are the support…for touch feedback, elevation and theming,…and floating action button.…Apparently, this won't cover every aspect of the library…but since touch feedback, elevation and theming support…are fundamental concepts in material design,…our evaluation should exercise something…that's broadly used in the library…because we have learned the nuances…of floating action buttons by building one from scratch.…
We should be able to evaluate the quality…of the library's implementation at a detailed level.…
