  1. Your mistakenly confusing Material Design, the UI/ux design patterns created by Google and Material UI a react library that implements Material Design.

  2. Hi,

    Yes you are right, Material-UI is an open source react library and is not developed by Google. I got caught up with the symmetry and similarities of terms. I have made the required changes.
    I hope you like the article.

    Best Regards,

  3. Thanks for the article, really helpful for me when learning about this!

    Hope you don’t mind me posting two super minor bugs in case other readers copy/paste your code blocks like I did when I was learning:

    * In the ‘Spacing’ section, I think you meant to write {spacing}, so spacing variable value is printed to the screen

    * In the ‘Fluid grids’ section, you use the variable ‘theme’ which is undefined. I think you’ve done the standard ‘makeStyles’ but are missing a bit of code for that:

    import { makeStyles } from ‘@material-ui/core/styles’;

    const useStyles = makeStyles((theme) => ({
    root: {
    flexGrow: 1
    paper: {
    padding: 20,
    textAlign: “center”,
    color: theme.palette.text.secondary,
    fontFamily: “Roboto”

    export default function BreakpointGridDemo() {
    const classes = useStyles();

    Thanks again!
