So I have used many of these frameworks. Currently ng-zorro is my favorite, it just gives more out of the box, very little overhead than like material, also changing css for ng-zorro components I found easier that prime/material

Hey! I just added ng-zorro to my project, but VS Code can't give me IntelliSense for importing its modules. Do you have the same problem? With Angular Material, IntelliSense works out of the box: I just type the module name anywhere and it allows me to import through Ctrl+Space.
