    Refreshed Windows95 UI components for your modern React apps.
    Built with styled-components 💅



    Getting Started

    First, install component library and styled-components in your project directory:

    $ npm i react95 styled-components

    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 the official React95 website 🤟🏻


    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
