I am starting to become a full-stack developer, by choosing and learning .NET Core for API Development, Angular CLI / React for UI Development, MongoDB for database, as it a NoSQL DB and Flutter / React Native for Mobile App Development.

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—since 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.

    Our whole Vue.js frontend stack (incl. SSR) consists of the following tools:

    • Nuxt.js consisting of Vue CLI, Vue Router, vuex, Webpack and Sass (Bundler for HTML5, CSS 3), Babel (Transpiler for JavaScript),
    • Vue Styleguidist as our style guide and pool of developed Vue.js components
    • Vuetify as Material Component Framework (for fast app development)
    • TypeScript as programming language
    • Apollo / GraphQL (incl. GraphiQL) for data access layer (https://apollo.vuejs.org/)
    • ESLint, TSLint and Prettier for coding style and code analyzes
    • Jest as testing framework
    • Google Fonts and Font Awesome for typography and icon toolkit
    • NativeScript-Vue for mobile development

    The main reason we have chosen Vue.js over React and AngularJS is related to the following artifacts:

    • Empowered HTML. Vue.js has many similar approaches with Angular. This helps to optimize HTML blocks handling with the use of different components.
    • Detailed documentation. Vue.js has very good documentation which can fasten learning curve for developers.
    • Adaptability. It provides a rapid switching period from other frameworks. It has similarities with Angular and React in terms of design and architecture.
    • Awesome integration. Vue.js can be used for both building single-page applications and more difficult web interfaces of apps. Smaller interactive parts can be easily integrated into the existing infrastructure with no negative effect on the entire system.
    • Large scaling. Vue.js can help to develop pretty large reusable templates.
    • Tiny size. Vue.js weights around 20KB keeping its speed and flexibility. It allows reaching much better performance in comparison to other frameworks.

    My React website is a simple 5-pager that attaches to a database to store and display registrations and other data. The user (small user base) can change any form elements, but I don't need theme-ing, though that would be fun for the user. reactstrap/react-bootstrap built on Bootstrap 4 sounds dated. I am familiar with reactstrap, but a friend said to try Material-UI. The thought of learning it is interesting, but somehow I think it might be overkill. So... reactstrap, react-bootstrap, or Material UI, which should I use?

    Hi there!

    I just want to have a simple poll/vote...

    If you guys need a UI/Component Library for React, Vue.js, or AngularJS, which type of library would you prefer between:

    1 ) A single maintained cross-framework library that is 100% compatible and can be integrated with any popular framework like Vue, React, Angular 2, Svelte, etc.

    2) A native framework-specific library developed to work only on target framework like ElementUI for Vue, Ant Design for React.

    Your advice would help a lot! Thanks in advance :)

    Hi, I start building an admin dashboard with next.js and looking for a frontend framework ( components ready ). So I end up with Ant Design and Material-UI, but I never built a project with these two.

    Here is a list of my requirements.

    1. Good documentation.
    2. easy CRUD ( date picker and date range picker bundled )
    3. built-in multi-lang feature or Great 3rd library support
    4. Admin dashboard template
    5. well code maintenance

    Which is better for the long run?
