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.
Console is the place developers go to find the best tools. Each week, our weekly newsletter picks out the most interesting tools and new releases. We keep track of everything - dev tools, devops, cloud, and APIs - so you don't have to.
