Describing the UI
Importing and exporting components
Bringing in and sending out parts
Although several components can be declared in a single file, huge files can be challenging to explore. You can fix this by exporting a component into its own file, and importing that component from another file:
When should a React project use a UI component library?
You may use React.js UI component libraries to design beautiful user interfaces for your React.js-based websites and applications. Using a UI component library speeds up and simplifies the process even though you can create your own code for each feature or capability you wish to add in your design.
A component library will likely be more useful for projects that prioritise functionality above aesthetics. Additionally, creating prototypes in code rather than starting with graphics and then turning them into code is more effective.
Our favourite React UI library is Material UI, and to be completely honest, we can’t even think of another one to suggest. Making a quality UI library is tremendously challenging for many different reasons. It takes a lot of work to create components that are functional and appealing, but these components also need to be well documented, to have working examples, and to support the countless edge situations, such as responsiveness, accessibility, translation, theming, and so forth.
Our default option for business projects is Material UI because of the amount of work that has gone into it. If you’ve ever attempted to create your own UI library, you are aware of how difficult it is to get the desired style.
To use the Material-various UI’s features or components, we must first install it. Make sure you are in the master folder for your application when you open your terminal. In the terminal, type npm install @material-ui/core and press Enter.
How to access MUI in React.js?
The npm package for MUI is available. In order to access it, all you have to do is run the following piece of code in your React project:
npm install @emotion/styled @emotion/react @mui/material
You have full access to the MUI library and all of its parts, assuming that React has already been loaded on your device. Over a hundred different parts make up MUI, and they can be grouped into one of the following categories
MUI components don’t need any sort of globally scoped styles because they are designed to work independently. We advise including the following globals in your app for a better user and developer experience.
Responsive meta tag
MUI is a mobile-first component library—we write code for mobile devices first, and then scale up the components as necessary using CSS media queries.
To ensure proper rendering and touch zooming for all devices, add the responsive viewport meta tag to your <head> element:
<meta name=”viewport“ content=”initial-scale=1, width=device-width“ />
Useful Documentation for the Material UI:
When you click the upper left menu on the Material UI website, a sidebar will appear. The two portions, components and component API, will be discussed first. The primary distinction between these 2 sections is that while the Component API section includes a comprehensive list of all props and CSS rules/classes for each component, the Components section provides examples/demos and explanations for each component (and no examples). Each element can be found in both parts, which nicely distinguishes between exploring and verifying precise property names.
