I picked up an idea to develop and it was no brainer I had to go with React for the frontend. I was faced with challenges when it came to what component framework to use. I had worked extensively with Material-UI but I needed something different that would offer me wider range of well customized components (I became pretty slow at styling). I brought in Evergreen after several sampling and reads online but again, after several prototype development against Evergreen鈥攕ince I was using TypeScript and I had to import custom Type, it felt exhaustive. After I validated Evergreen with the designs of the idea I was developing, I also noticed I might have to do a lot of styling. I later stumbled on Material Kit, the one specifically made for React . It was promising with beautifully crafted components, most of which fits into the designs pages I had on ground.

A major problem of Material Kit for me is it isn't written in TypeScript and there isn't any plans to support its TypeScript version. I rolled up my sleeve and started converting their components to TypeScript and if you'll ask me, I am still on it.

In summary, I used the Create React App with TypeScript support and I am spending some time converting Material Kit to TypeScript before I start developing against it. All of these components are going to be hosted on Bit.

If you feel I am crazy or I have gotten something wrong, I'll be willing to listen to your opinion. Also, if you want to have a share of whatever TypeScript version of Material Kit I end up coming up with, let me know.

React Next.js Evergreen

Our #Frontend at FeaturePeek uses the Evergreen UI framework as a starting point for our basic UI primitives like buttons, modals, and inputs. I chose this library not only because it's beautiful and frequently updated, but also because the CSS-in-JS model inherited from ui-box is such a joy to work with.

Any CSS property can be passed to any UI component as a prop. Evergreen then compiles atomic classes from the rules used, and injects the styles in the head for every page. The easiest way I've encountered to achieve critical CSS. It even hydrates into the Next.js SSR scripts, so styles aren't lost when JavaScript is disabled.
