Refreshed Windows95 UI components for your modern React apps.


Built with styled-components ?

Getting Started

First, install component library in your project directory:

$ npm i react95

Apply style reset, wrap your app content with ThemeProvider with theme of your choice... and you are ready to go! ?

import React from 'react';
import { createGlobalStyle, ThemeProvider } from "styled-components";
import { reset, themes, List, ListItem, Divider } from 'react95';

const ResetStyles = createGlobalStyle`

export default props =>
  <div className="App">
    <ResetStyles />
    <ThemeProvider theme={themes.default}>
          <ListItem>? Sing</ListItem>
          <ListItem>?? Dance</ListItem>
          <Divider />
          <ListItem disabled>? Sleep</ListItem>


You can view components on Storybook. If you want to play with it locally, simply clone the repo and run commands below:

$ npm i 
$ npm run storybook

Submit your project

Apps built with React95 will be submitted on official React95

Support / Contributing

We are not attempting to exactly RECREATE Windows95 components. We are going to make them usable in the modern mobile / web apps.
Thus, any help from UI / UX designers would be EXTREMELY appreciated. The challenge is to come up with new component designs / layouts that are broadly used in modern UIs, that weren't present back in 95.

There's a lot to do. If you want to help with the project, feel free to open pull requests and submit issues. Let's make UI great again ?


There's quite a few things to be done:

  • Styled system
  • Lots of tacky color schemes ?
  • Custom icons maybe? (Emojis from Windows 10 seem to go very well with the lib)
  • Typography
  • Range slider component
  • Avatar component
  • Components common in all modern UIs (FAB, Badge, Avatar, Snackbar, Steppers)

And the boring stuff too:

  • Testing
  • Semantic release
  • eslint
