  • shadcn/ui

    Beautifully designed components that you can copy and paste into your apps. Accessible. Customizable. Open Source.

  • https://www.radix-ui.com/ + https://ui.shadcn.com/ is a great match. It will probably cover 95% of what you need.

  • antd

    An enterprise-class UI design language and React UI library

  • I then wanted to settle with Ant Design, but after reading through the docs, the, admittedly shitty first setup documentation and a lot of random Chinese elements spread throughout, I decided to post my journey on here and ask you guys for recommendations on truly good looking, documented and opinionated UI frameworks.

  • nextui

    🚀 Beautiful, fast and modern React UI library.

  • I've come across NextUI first, and it looked freaking awesome. I was impressed by looks, truly native support for dark mode, typescript and so on and so forth. What then devastated me is its lack of proper compatibility with NextJS 13, and also that it's not really finished yet (as is declared on their website clearly.) and therefore not really ready for production.

  • chakra-ui

    ⚡️ Simple, Modular & Accessible UI Components for your React Applications

  • The next thing I found was ChakraUI, and I even started building with it. The lack of a Layout component, and some other issues with the docs and it being a comparatively small project with slow support and the discord not being too active was not what really turned me off. ChakraUI looks decent, but it's too unopinionated for my liking. I want to ship, not have to configure Buttons with 16 lines of props first.

  • red-hat-design-system

    Red Hat's Design System

  • Red Hat - https://ux.redhat.com/

  • UI kit

    A lightweight and modular front-end framework for developing fast and powerful web interfaces

  • Can try UIKIT out if you're looking around, I've used it solely for some quick slider stuff in certain projects and use it fully in others. The docs are pretty good and they have a discord community that's fairly active.

  • Bootstrap

    The most popular HTML, CSS, and JavaScript framework for developing responsive, mobile first projects on the web.

  • Bootstrap continue to be one of the best in my experience

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.
