Consider These 8 Amazing React Component Libraries for Your Next Big Project (I mean it)

Making accessible user interfaces is often difficult and time-consuming for web developers. This is amplified when we have to create specific components from scratch, such as Modals or Popovers.

Fortunately, the React ecosystem is vast, and many wonderful people have created incredible frameworks to assist us with this challenge. Today, we'll look at React component libraries that are easy to use, have a strong basic style, adequate documentation, and include components like Modals, Popovers, Tooltips, and so on.

1) Chakra User Interface

Chakra User Interface

Chakra UI was the first component library I used when I initially started using Next.js, and it was fantastic! I was able to create very complicated UIs (with modals and tables and everything) in a short amount of time, which allowed me to focus on other things, such as application logic. It is ideal for usage at hackathons! It also has a large and active community and is incredibly popular.



The following UI is perhaps the most visually appealing of the five in this post. Although it is still in the beta stage, it comes with everything you need and looks fantastic right out of the box! It also includes some incredible transitions and animations out of the box, which other component libraries do not.

3) MUI


MUI, formerly known as Material UI, has also been around for a long time. It is based on Google's Material Design, but it also allows for substantial customisation. MUI also includes an unstyled version and a package including some fantastic CSS tools. MUI X additionally has a range of sophisticated components. Some of these components are free, while others need a license fee.

4) Mantine


Mantine also includes a large number of components and a functional UI out of the box. It's similar to Chakra UI, but with a smaller community. It does, however, provide some fantastic features like as a notification center, a command bar, a rich text editor, and much more!

5) React Daisy UI

React Daisy UI

Daisy UI is an incredible Tailwind CSS component library. Daisy UI is a Daisy UI component framework written in React. It comes with a large variety of themes and components out of the box. It is relatively simple to customize using Tailwind CSS because it is built on it and comes with it.

6) Ant Design (AntD)

Ant Design

Ant Design (also known as AntD) bills itself as "the world's second most popular React UI," while it's unclear who they consider to be the most popular. As a design system for enterprise-level products, AntD distinguishes itself from other React component libraries. AntD also has a design philosophy based on four values: natural, certain, meaningful, and growing. Buy me a coffee

Ant Financial, Alibaba, Tencent, and Baidu are among the notable firms that have embraced AntD's design philosophy. Ant Design was developed by Ant Financial and introduced in 2016—more on this later.

7) Blueprint


Palantir's Blueprint is an open-source React UI package. It distinguishes itself from other React frameworks by being "designed for constructing sophisticated data-dense interfaces for desktop apps." Given Blueprint's Palantir connections, this comes as no surprise.

Blueprint splits component libraries based on use cases and important dependencies in addition to its core component package.

8) PrimeReact

PrimeReact is a huge React component library utilized by large organizations all around the world.

It includes over 90 outstanding React components that you can use right away in your project. TreeSelect, Organization chart, Terminal, and Captcha are some of the distinctive features it provides. PrimeReact also includes highly adjustable templates and 280+ ready-to-paste UI components to let you quickly create any interface.

The library is built on a design-agnostic framework and allows you to use current popular libraries such as Material and Bootstrap, or create your own. It comes with its own Theme Designer, which is GUI-based and contains 500+ variables to play with.


That concludes the list of 5 React component libraries that can help you speed up development. Please let me know if you have any additional favorites or which of these five was your favorite!
