Top 5 Material Design Frameworks for Web Developers

If you are a web developer or web designer looking to get involved with material design, it would be a good idea to start with a good material design framework. Using a pre-built framework as the base of your design will greatly increase your development efficiency and the consistency of your design. In addition, I find that using a framework as opposed to starting from scratch, helps me better understand the principles and the standards of material design. After some research and using some of theses frameworks in my own web projects, here are the top 5 material design frameworks for web developers and designers.
