Experience of using Material UI

4.0 6 months ago

Pros:

It has got huge range of components, icons and many more features to integrate in the app. It also provides templates such as dashboard templates which you can use it easily.

Cons:

The thing that i don't like about MI is that in a component, it contains many lines of codes to perform a tasks which makes code look messy.

Best Library for UI

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: I advise developers who want to enhance their product design to use it. Using this library, the absence of design expertise is perfectly filled. Already, the components have a pretty advanced and clear design. Consequently, time spent on design creation is reduced.

Pros:

MUI is a top-notch React UI framework that comes with a variety of pre-built and templated components. Each component is entirely customizable and complies with current accessibility standards.

Cons:

One of the difficulties of using MUI is that some of its documentation isn't set up for complete beginners. You must have at least rudimentary knowledge of development to make the most of our React UI framework. Furthermore, the documentation frequently goes out of date despite periodic interface improvements.
