1. Introduction?

NativeBase is a mobile-first, component library for React & React Native. Version 3.0 ships with complete ARIA integration, support for utility props and nearly 40 components that are consistent across Android, iOS and Web. Fast-track your dev process with NativeBase 3.0.

Recommended by Awesome React Native

NativeBase was added to the list of Frameworks of Awesome React Native and it is used by numerous React lovers across the world.

2. Motivation

Building with React Native from scratch is a tedious process with multiple steps such as adding styling, interactions, state management, responsiveness, accessibility, etc. We wanted to build and ship accessible, high-quality apps quickly.

Our inspirations include Material UI, Chakra UI, Ant Design, Braid Design System, Bootstrap, TailwindCSS & Flutter.

3. Features

Out of the Box Accessibility

Integrated with React ARIA and React Native ARIA, which provides React hooks. This enables you to build accessible design systems in no time.

Supporting Utility Props

Powered by Styled System so you can rapidly build custom UI components with constraint-based utility style props.

Rich Component Library

NativeBase offers around 40 components so you can build seamlessly. It includes button, checkbox, flex, stack and more.

Highly Themeable

Themeability is one of the core elements of NativeBase. You can customise your app theme and component styles to your heart's content.

It has a good set of UI components with good documentation. I got little troubled with this package in a long term projects, as they had some breaking changes in their release. But this package is worthy enough.
