  • material-ui

    MUI Core (formerly Material-UI) is the React UI library you always wanted. Follow your own design system, or start with Material Design.

    See https://github.com/microsoft/TypeScript/issues/34801 and https://github.com/mui-org/material-ui/issues/19113

  • headlessui

    Completely unstyled, fully accessible UI components, designed to integrate beautifully with Tailwind CSS.

    I do like this approach, but I couldn't find a headless component library that had a comparable offering. Once headlessui has more than 9 components, it would be a viable solution for this use case.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • TypeScript

    TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript that compiles to clean JavaScript output.

    See https://github.com/microsoft/TypeScript/issues/34801 and https://github.com/mui-org/material-ui/issues/19113
