React is one of the most popular web frameworks. Well, not exactly a framework but rather a frontend library but it’s often described this way and usually being mentioned or compared to other frameworks.

What's special about React is that it first introduced us the component-based architecture giving the direction for the web development industry. Seeing how well it was received, many other frameworks decided to adopt this approach as well.

React's modular nature created an ecosystem of UI libraries that is growing rapidly. You probably all know the most popular ones:

but there are plenty of smaller/less known libraries which are also awesome. Let's take a look at some of them!

If you are looking for something more low-level, I highly recommend Reakit. Great, a11y-first component library.

 

I used Chakra UI in my last projects. I absolutely love it! It's like having awesome little building blocks. Stack with spacing and Grid are my favorites <3

 
 

Hi love the post! One small suggestion material ui is not by google. Material design philosophy is. But material ui is not. Please change that part in you post.
