React Universal UI

Cross-platform (React Native and Web Browser) React, React Native's UI components to re-use everywhere.


Native platforms: iOs, Android (for Mac, Windows or Linux we could just use Atom to bring our React Native code on it's web and have that same code-base run on Native environment when they got better support for React Native building block).

Browser support: Chrome, Firefox, Safari >= 7, IE 10, Edge.


"React Universal UI" is a cross-platform React's UI Kit - which could be run on both Web Browser and React Native environment, write once and use everywhere.

Quick start

Existing Web or React Native project:

  1. Install react-universal-ui package (no further config required)
npm install --save react-universal-ui
  1. Install and configure react-native-web using their instruction (optional, only need on Web project)

  2. Wrap your root component under RuuiProvider

import { RuuiProvider } from 'react-universal-ui';
import App from './app';

const AppContainer = () => {
  return <RuuiProvider>

New project:

React Universal UI come with it's own cli (command line interface), install it by..

npm install -g ruui-cli

With ruui-cli installed globally.. we should now able to use ruui command to create a new project:

ruui init SuperCoolProject

This will take a while when cli create the project structure for us as well as install necessary dependencies..

Run ruui dev under your React Universal UI project folder..

cd SuperCoolProject
ruui dev

*note: the project totally generated using react-native-cli, which mean it is a valid React Native project.. we could run it normally with:

react-native run-ios
react-native run-android

How it work

React Native:

Essentially this is just a normal [React Native][react-native-url] UI Library - which absolutely work with [React Native][react-native-url]'s ecosystem. Feel free to use those UI with your favorite [React Native][react-native-url] library even if you don't care about Browser yet (but believe me, you'll love it - Browser run give us tons of cool stuff).


[React Native Web][react-native-web-url] let us run our [React Native][react-native-url] code on Browser and [React Universal UI][github-url] (this project) cares about behavior of those components on Browser.


There're some differences between React Native and Web building block - such as Routing, Touch/Mouse handling... this project cares and provide support for those differences (there're helpers under utils module), which save your time and let you focus on write your Universal App.
