React Storybook vs Semantic UI: What are the differences?
React Storybook: Develop and design React components without an app. You just load your UI components into the React Storybook and start developing them. This functionality allows you to develop UI components rapidly without worrying about the app. It will improve your team’s collaboration and feedback loop; 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 Storybook belongs to "MVC Tools" category of the tech stack, while Semantic UI can be primarily classified under "Front-End Frameworks".
Some of the features offered by React Storybook are:
- Isolated environment for your components (with the use of various iframe tactics).
- Hot module reloading (even for functional stateless components).
- Works with any app (whether it's Redux, Relay or Meteor).
On the other hand, Semantic UI provides the following key features:
- Build Responsive Layouts Easier
- Self Explanatory
- Tag ambivalent
React Storybook and Semantic UI are both open source tools. It seems that Semantic UI with 45.7K GitHub stars and 4.83K forks on GitHub has more adoption than React Storybook with 38.9K GitHub stars and 3.19K GitHub forks.
Snapchat, Create.It, and Reviewable are some of the popular companies that use Semantic UI, whereas React Storybook is used by Huddle, Quizlet, and AppsFlyer. Semantic UI has a broader approval, being mentioned in 77 company stacks & 50 developers stacks; compared to React Storybook, which is listed in 43 company stacks and 22 developer stacks.

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.
<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.
