If you want to design a website that looks and functions like an APP this is it. BONUS > > Google Stories is programmed perfectly if you add the plug in. Material properly creates professional looking PREVIEWS for facebook twitter pinterest etc. Thanks to people like Steve Jobs that founded the concept of LIMITED options and simple clean design, you can't lose with this template. The navigation is intuitive and clean. Also it's fast which is the best thing for search...

This plugin is great! Thanks for making it available. Makes utilizing MDC super easy! I think the low marks are reflective of people that don't know or understand the Material Design concept. Great work!

BEWARE - This plugin starts with a simple on/off panel that when selected on (default), adds example pages and posts, text and graphics to a site along with a very basic theme. If you already have a site theme with content, this will replace it. It made a pretty fair mess of my established site. Better to learn material design and apply it yourself. This plugin is way too basic for theme design. Definitely NOT for use on an established web site.
