9 Tools You May Want to Use with React


Sometimes we don't need to use this, but generally, this is a very good tool to create a reactjs project.

And easy to add typescript which is great!!!

React Developer Tools

In terms of this Chrome extension, not may want to use but really need to use lol.

Redux Devtools

This is also must-use when using redux.

React Studio

This looks like Bootstrap studio for Reactjs to me.
React Studio lets you create components either visually or in code, then use them interchangeably in your designs.


Storybook is an open source tool for developing UI components in isolation for React, Vue, and Angular. It makes building stunning UIs organized and efficient.

Probably most people use this. Storybook can speed up our development.


Bit helps your team share components and collaborate to build faster together. Give it a try.

I haven't used this yet but looks really great and useful. Will try this soon.


Cosmos scans your project for components and enables you to:

  1. Render components under any combination of props, context and state
  2. Mock every external dependency (eg. API responses, localStorage, etc)
  3. See app state evolve in real-time while interacting with running instances

Sounds incredible.


Reactide is the first dedicated IDE for React web application development.


SideView is a desktop app that enables you to run your components in isolation

Got a message from creator, Hampus Ahlgren. Haven't tried it yet(so sorry).

I always WANT to use storybook, but never get around to set it up properly.
