Is anyone using Polymer?

I'd be interested to see some Polymer projects outside of what Google has put together. I'd also like to hear people's thoughts about working with Polymer.

    I don't like the idea of html imports in the current state of the web, I much rather prefer the React approach to components. You keep a lot of today's tooling (static analysis, npm, browserify) while still building modular code.

    Something I'm really excited about is shadow DOM integration with React. Give any excuse to ditch the React inspector extension and I'll gladly take it.

      Yeah, there is a lot of browser compatibility issues with the current web. But I'm hopeful for a day when all users are on modern browsers!

    I'm not sure if I fully understand where the pretty design elements end and polymer ends. What exactly is this and why should I care?

    I just can't wait until Polymer and AngularJS Directives collide.

    Thankfully, AngularJS 2.0 is going to take advantage of Shadow DOM features. :)

      Definitely I haven't used it since I don't see the real advantage having Angular's directives. I saw this video but they don't really say if they could coexist or it will just bloat the code.

      I guess I don't really understand whats all that polymer stuff, is it for the new Material thing, or is it a Front End Framework... I don't really get it
