Features

  • Ease of Styling: Chakra UI contains a set of layout components like Box and Stack that make it easy to style your components by passing props. Learn more
  • Flexible & composable: Chakra UI components are built on top of a React UI Primitive for endless composability.
  • Accessible. Chakra UI components follow the WAI-ARIA guidelines specifications and have the right aria-* attributes.
  • Dark Mode 😍: Most components in Chakra UI are dark mode compatible.

Installation

To use Chakra UI components, all you need to do is install the @chakra-ui/react package and its peer dependencies:

# with Yarn
$ yarn add @chakra-ui/react @emotion/react @emotion/styled

# with npm
$ npm i @chakra-ui/react @emotion/react @emotion/styled

# with pnpm
$ pnpm add @chakra-ui/react @emotion/react @emotion/styled

# with Bun
$ bun add @chakra-ui/react @emotion/react @emotion/styled

Usage

To start using the components, please follow these steps:

  1. Wrap your application with the ChakraProvider provided by @chakra-ui/react.
import { ChakraProvider, defaultSystem } from "@chakra-ui/react"

// Do this at the root of your application
function App({ children }) {
  return <ChakraProvider value={defaultSystem}>{children}</ChakraProvider>
}

Optionally, you can wrap your application with the ColorModeProvider so you can toggle between light and dark mode within your app.

  1. Now you can start using components like so!:
import { Button } from "@chakra-ui/react"

function Example() {
  return <Button>I just consumed some ⚑️Chakra!</Button>
}
