Who is Strand For?
Strand is for developers who want to quickly mock up an application, or who want to get an 'out-of-the-box' user interface up and running with minimal effort.
Why use Strand?
Web components are the future of web application development. Web components offer logic and styling encapsulation, which removes boilerplate from your application. Each Strand component is designed with intent to separate component behavior from the underlying data as much as possible.
Why build on Polymer?
Polymer provides essential sugar as well as 2 way binding to increase developer velocity and reduce boilerplate.
