According to the Stack Overflow survey React grew in popularity by almost 150% from 2017 to 2018. This isn’t really surprising, and among other things is happening thanks to its growing component-based ecosystem.

Some prefer libraries, others to develop their own components (see tools for component workflow mastery). Either way, here is the full list of some of the best 23 UI component libraries and frameworks out there, with a bonus at the end. Note that the list isn’t ranked, but brought as a useful resource. Enjoy.

You can also combine these libraries with Bit, to make each component individually available to discover, share and use without the library.

Every component becomes available to discover, try hands-on in a live playground, and install in your projects using NPM and Yarn. You can even develop components from multiple projects and sync changes between them.

Bit (GitHub) can be used to discover and share components from any open source library, or for your team’s components, so feel free to give it a try.
