Ant Design vs React Canvas: What are the differences?

Developers describe Ant Design as "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. On the other hand, React Canvas is detailed as "High performance canvas rendering for React components, developed by Flipboard". React Canvas adds the ability for React components to render to "canvas" rather than DOM. This project is a work-in-progress. Though much of the code is in production on flipboard.com, the React canvas bindings are relatively new and the API is subject to change.

Ant Design and React Canvas can be categorized as "JavaScript Framework Components" tools.

Ant Design and React Canvas are both open source tools. Ant Design with 47.8K GitHub stars and 16.8K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than React Canvas with 12K GitHub stars and 941 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)
