Drupal 8 admin theme based on Google Material Design Language and utilizing the CSS framework materializecss

Note: This theme still lack support in many areas, not recommended for production environment..

I am working on this project to achieve 2 (large) goals:

1) Modernize Drupal 8 administration UX and design.

Often times, Drupal gets a bad introduction as a CMS, due to it's 'framework' mentality and unopinionated design. I agree with the underlying principle, however presenting a design and UX that the user is familiar with help with wayfinding and interaction patterns.

2) Truly mobile first.

since the d7 release, I have heard 'mobile first' mentality -- and many areas have improved, but from an administration standpoint, it's still completely unusable to achieve even the most basic tasks.

The CMS market has been quite resistant to the need for mobile administration, but I believe that is ending. The trend for administrating applications is growing extremely quickly with the market share of IoT.

Modern development process utilizing:
- Gulp
- NPM
- Materializecss.com CSS/js framework
- [various other JS Plugins that are light weight and very stable] (will update this when I make decisions)

Active development on GitHub: https://github.com/briancwald/material_admin
