React-GPT is an experimental application that uses the GPT-4 language model to generate React components from user stories. It is built with React, TailwindCSS, Typescript, Radix UI, Shandcn UI, and OpenAI API.
- Generate React Components from user stories
- Compose React Components from existing components
- Use a local design system to generate React Components
- Use React, TailwindCSS, Typescript, Radix UI, Shandcn UI
- Built with Atomic Design Principles
- Clone repository
git clone [email protected]:tutim-io/react-gpt.git
- Change to the project directory
- Get an OpenAI API Key
- Set OPENAI_SECRET_KEY in backend/main .env file (see .env.example) or run the script below
echo OPENAI_SECRET_KEY="INSERT_YOUR_OPENAI_SECRET_KEY_VALUE_HERE" >> backend/main/.env
- Install dependencies
- Run Backend Script – This script generates the componenets
- Run Frontend App to see your components in action
- Open frontend/main/src/GenReactApp.tsx
Read the instructions and change the example component to the component you generated
- Read Project Customization Section
Read the Project Customization Section to learn how to customize and operate the project

Component Generation Flow
🛠️ Project Customization
- Customize workflow:
- file: backend/main/react-gen/generateComponents.ts
- description: Can control the flow of the generation process, run step by step or full flow.
- Render Application
- file: frontend/main/src/GenReactApp.tsx
- description: Render the generated application, see examples in the file.
- use JsonSkeleton to render the skeleton of the page
- use demo.tsx files to render the demo page
- Generate React Components
- folder: create a folder under LOCAL_COMPONENTS_DIR (default frontend/main/src/react-gpt) (see .env.example file)
- description: Generate a user-story.md file under the folder, make it as detailed as possible.
- change CONTAINER_PATH in generateComponents.ts to the folder name
- run the backend script to generate the React Components.
- Customize Folder Structure (see .env.example file)
- UI_COMPONENTS_DIR – Where your UI components are located
- DEMO_COMPONENTS_DIR – Where your UI components demo files are located
- LOCAL_COMPONENTS_DIR – Where your generated components are located
📦 Next Steps
- Edit existing components
- Test Components after generating
- Wireframe image to skeleton code
- Remote design system to generate React Components
- Use of external libraries
- Component logic control (state, props, context, effects, api calls, etc.)
- The generated code is not production-ready and should be used for prototyping purposes only.
- Only works well with GPT4, GPT-3.5 is not supported ATM, so make sure you have GPT4 enabled in your OpenAI account.
- The output may come with a few bugs and errors, so it is recommended to review and test the code before using it in a production environment, or even running it in a development environment.
- The first step of the generation process is to convert the user story into a JSON file. This step is not perfect and may result in some inaccuracies or missing information, consider changing the JSON file manually if necessary.
- Advised to run it step by step, and review the generated code after each step.
