React Native Desktop vs Semantic UI: What are the differences?

What is React Native Desktop? React Native for OS X. Build OS X desktop apps using React Native.

What is Semantic UI? A UI Component library implemented using a set of specifications designed around natural language. Semantic empowers designers and developers by creating a shared vocabulary for UI.

React Native Desktop and Semantic UI are primarily classified as "Cross-Platform Desktop Development" and "Front-End Frameworks" tools respectively.

React Native Desktop and Semantic UI are both open source tools. Semantic UI with 45.7K GitHub stars and 4.83K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than React Native Desktop with 11.1K GitHub stars and 479 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to React Native Desktop and Semantic UI?
        Electron
        With Electron, creating a desktop application for your company or idea is easy. Initially developed for GitHub's Atom editor, Electron has since been used to create applications by companies like Microsoft, Facebook, Slack, and Docker. The Electron framework lets you write cross-platform desktop applications using JavaScript, HTML and CSS. It is based on io.js and Chromium and is used in the Atom editor.
        Element
        Element is a Vue 2.0 based component library for developers, designers and product managers, with a set of design resources.
        JavaFX
        It is a set of graphics and media packages that enables developers to design, create, test, debug, and deploy rich client applications that operate consistently across diverse platforms.
        Nativefier
        Nativefier is a command line tool that allows you to easily create a desktop application for any web site with succinct and minimal configuration. Apps are wrapped by Electron in an OS executable (.app, .exe, etc.) for use on Windows, OSX and Linux.
        Hazel
        This project lets you deploy an update server for Electron apps with ease: You only need to run a single command and fill out two text fields.

        ReactQL is a React + GraphQL front-end starter kit. #JSX is a natural way to think about building UI, and it renders to pure #HTML in the browser and on the server, making it trivial to build server-rendered Single Page Apps. GraphQL via Apollo was chosen for the data layer; #GraphQL makes it simple to request just the data your app needs, and #Apollo takes care of communicating with your API (written in any language; doesn't have to be JavaScript!), caching, and rendering to #React.

        ReactQL is written in TypeScript to provide full types/Intellisense, and pick up hard-to-diagnose goofs that might later show up at runtime. React makes heavy use of Webpack 4 to handle transforming your code to an optimised client-side bundle, and in throws back just enough code needed for the initial render, while seamlessly handling import statements asynchronously as needed, making the payload your user downloads ultimately much smaller than trying to do it by hand.

        React Helmet was chosen to handle <head> content, because it works universally, making it easy to throw back the correct <title> and other tags on the initial render, as well as inject new tags for subsequent client-side views.

        styled-components, Sass, Less and PostCSS were added to give developers a choice of whether to build styles purely in React / JavaScript, or whether to defer to a #css #preprocessor. This is especially useful for interop with UI frameworks like Bootstrap, Semantic UI, Foundation, etc - ReactQL lets you mix and match #css and renders to both a static .css file during bundling as well as generates per-page <style> tags when using #StyledComponents.

        React Router handles routing, because it works both on the server and in the client. ReactQL customises it further by capturing non-200 responses on the server, redirecting or throwing back custom 404 pages as needed.

        Koa is the web server that handles all incoming HTTP requests, because it's fast (TTFB < 5ms, even after fully rendering React), and its natively #async, making it easy to async/await inside routes and middleware.

        We use Semantic UI for our frotend. A heavily customised version of it, but still Semantic UI under the hood.

        Used Semantic UI + Angular2 together with Spring or Node/Express for full stack web application development.

        It's pretty. Used it once for MDST.
