What is AngularJS Material?
AngularJS Material is an implementation of Google's Material Design Specification (2014-2017). This project provides a set of reusable, well-tested, and accessible UI components for AngularJS developers.
AngularJS versus Angular?
The AngularJS Material library is a mature and stable product that is ready for production use. Developers should note that AngularJS Material works only with AngularJS 1.x.
Current development efforts are focused on bug fixes, accessibility, performance, and minor enhancements.
The Angular Material and Component Dev Kit (CDK) libraries (for Angular v2+) can be found in the angular/components GitHub repository.
