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

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; Semantic UI React: Integrating Semantic-UI and React. Semantic UI React is the official React integration for Semantic UI. jQuery Free, Declarative API, Shorthand Props, and more.

Semantic UI and Semantic UI React are primarily classified as "Front-End Frameworks" and "Javascript UI Libraries" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Semantic UI are:

  • Build Responsive Layouts Easier
  • Self Explanatory
  • Tag ambivalent

On the other hand, Semantic UI React provides the following key features:

  • No jQuery dependency
  • No animation dependencies
  • Reuse SUI CSS transitions

"Easy to use and looks elegant" is the primary reason why developers consider Semantic UI over the competitors, whereas "Great look&feel" was stated as the key factor in picking Semantic UI React.

Semantic UI and Semantic UI React are both open source tools. It seems that Semantic UI with 45.9K GitHub stars and 4.84K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Semantic UI React with 9.89K GitHub stars and 2.69K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Semantic UI has a broader approval, being mentioned in 77 company stacks & 55 developers stacks; compared to Semantic UI React, which is listed in 16 company stacks and 22 developer stacks.

    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.

    Recently I have been working on an open source stack to help people consolidate their personal health data in a single database so that AI and analytics apps can be run against it to find personalized treatments. We chose to go with a #containerized approach leveraging Docker #containers with a local development environment setup with Docker Compose and nginx for container routing. For the production environment we chose to pull code from GitHub and build/push images using Jenkins and using Kubernetes to deploy to Amazon EC2.

    We also implemented a dashboard app to handle user authentication/authorization, as well as a custom SSO server that runs on Heroku which allows experts to easily visit more than one instance without having to login repeatedly. The #Backend was implemented using my favorite #Stack which consists of FeathersJS on top of Node.js and ExpressJS with PostgreSQL as the main database. The #Frontend was implemented using React, Redux.js, Semantic UI React and the FeathersJS client. Though testing was light on this project, we chose to use AVA as well as ESLint to keep the codebase clean and consistent.

    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.
