Build terminal apps with React.

UI Builder
Our review

What we like

Use React & components to build interactive command line interfaces. Built-in components for text, colors, flex boxes, borders, hooks, working with stdin and stderr. Supports CSS-like props, testing and all features of React e.g. Devtools. Various open source components e.g. progress bar, table, form.

What we don't like

There’s a significant productivity gain from using React across web, terminal, mobile, etc, but purists might argue CLIs should be built in a more appropriate language like Go or Rust.
