Ant Design vs Blueprint: What are the differences?

Ant Design: A set of high-quality React components. An enterprise-class UI design language and React-based implementation. Graceful UI components out of the box, base on React Component. A npm + webpack + babel + dora + dva development framework; Blueprint: A React UI toolkit for the web. Blueprint is a React UI toolkit for the web. It is optimized for building complex, data-dense web interfaces for desktop applications. If you rely heavily on mobile interactions and are looking for a mobile-first UI toolkit, this may not be for you.

Ant Design can be classified as a tool in the "JavaScript Framework Components" category, while Blueprint is grouped under "Javascript UI Libraries".

"Polished and enterprisey look and feel" is the top reason why over 5 developers like Ant Design, while over 3 developers mention "Documentation is very well done" as the leading cause for choosing Blueprint.

Ant Design and Blueprint are both open source tools. Ant Design with 48.5K GitHub stars and 17.1K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Blueprint with 14.3K GitHub stars and 1.26K GitHub forks.

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?

I'm using both of them. But If you want to create admin dashboard, You should try AntDesign. They (Alibaba / Taobao) created a group of UI libaries to create admin dashboard. It's production ready. https://procomponents.ant.design/en-US/components/table https://pro.ant.design/docs/layout In my opinion, If you want to create a dashboard with mobile first / simple dashboard, you can choice material ui. otherwise, antdesign is better (if you want focus on desktop /tablet ui). Some of skeleton has built with material ui such as react-admin is good point to start. But if you want to create admin site with antdesign, I think you should build with umijs (it is alternative and compatible with nextjs and antd support directlly)
