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鈥檚 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.

        What are some alternatives to React Storybook and Semantic UI?
        Storybook
        It is an open source tool for developing UI components in isolation for React, Vue, and Angular. It makes building stunning UIs organized and efficient.
        PrimeNg
        It has a rich collection of components that would satisfy most of the UI requirements of your application like datatable, dropdown, multiselect, notification messages, accordion, breadcrumbs and other input components. So there would be no need of adding different libraries for different UI requirements.
        Structor
        Structor is a visual development environment for node.js Web applications with React UI. The essential part of the builder is a project boilerplate. The boilerplate is a prepacked source code of node.js application in which metainfo included.
        LINQPad
        It is used to interactively query SQL databases using LINQ, as well as interactively writing C# code without the need for an IDE. It supports all the LINQ APIs in the .NET Framework, including LINQ to XML, PLINQ, LINQ to SQL and Entity Framework.
        Reactotron
        Plug it into your app as a dev dependency so it adds nothing to your product builds. Use it to: view your application state, show API requests & responses, perform quick performance benchmarks, and more.

        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.
