Who uses Stitches?
- Avoids unnecessary prop interpolations at runtime, making it significantly more performant than other styling libraries
- Both @stitches/core and @stitches/react libraries combined weigh in at ~8.0kb gzipped
- Supports cross-browser server-side rendering, even for responsive styles and variants
- Variants are a first-class citizen, so you can design composable component APIs which are typed automatically
- Define multiple themes with CSS variables, then expose them to any part of your app
- With a fully-typed API, token-aware properties, and custom utils, it provides a fun and intuitive DX
- No more specificity issues due to the atomic output. Even extended components (via the as prop) won't contain duplicate CSS properties
