Ant Design vs React Starter Kit: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is React Starter Kit? A skeleton of an "isomorphic" web application / SPA built with React.js, Express, Flux, and more. React Starter Kit is an opinionated boilerplate for web development built on top of Facebook's React library, Node.js / Express server and Flux architecture. Containing modern web development tools such as Webpack, Babel and BrowserSync.

Ant Design and React Starter Kit belong to "JavaScript Framework Components" category of the tech stack.

Ant Design and React Starter Kit are both open source tools. Ant Design with 48.5K GitHub stars and 17.1K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than React Starter Kit with 19.3K GitHub stars and 3.89K GitHub forks.

Next.js
Material-UI
and
Ant Design

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)
