What is NextUI?

A React UI library: NextUI provides a collection of pre-built React components to streamline your website or application development process. Built on Tailwind CSS: It uses the popular Tailwind CSS utility framework for its styling, giving you access to Tailwind's classes for customization. Accessibility and design focus: NextUI prioritizes creating components that follow web accessibility guidelines (WAI-ARIA standards) and offer a clean, modern aesthetic.

Why use NextUI?

Speed and efficiency: If you want to create beautiful and functional user interfaces quickly, NextUI allows you to leverage its well-designed components instead of building everything from scratch. Customization: Although built on Tailwind CSS, NextUI offers multiple ways to customize the default look of components including theming and CSS overrides. Accessibility: It helps you build inclusive websites and applications that can be used by people with disabilities. Growing Community: NextUI has a supportive and expanding community, providing resources and assistance for those using the library.

NextUI is a great fit for React projects where:

You need to build websites or apps quickly. You prefer component-based development. UI design isn't your primary expertise, and you want a solid, visually appealing base. Accessibility is a top priority.
