Bootstrap is a widely popular CSS framework that has been around for a long time and has a large community following. It is widely used in web development projects. On the other hand, @emotion/css is a more recent library that focuses on providing a powerful and flexible CSS-in-JS solution. While it may not have the same level of popularity as Bootstrap, it has gained a significant following in the React community.
Bootstrap is a comprehensive CSS framework that includes a wide range of pre-built components and styles. As a result, it has a larger file size compared to @emotion/css, which is a more lightweight library that focuses on providing a CSS-in-JS solution. If file size is a concern, @emotion/css might be a better choice.
Integration with React
Both @emotion/css and Bootstrap can be used with React. However, @emotion/css is specifically designed to work well with React and provides a seamless integration. It allows you to write CSS-in-JS directly in your React components, making it easy to manage styles and component-specific CSS. Bootstrap, on the other hand, requires additional setup and may not provide the same level of integration and convenience as @emotion/css for React projects.
Community and Ecosystem
Bootstrap has a large and established community with extensive documentation, tutorials, and resources available. It also has a wide range of third-party themes, plugins, and extensions that can be easily integrated into your project. @emotion/css, while not as widely adopted as Bootstrap, has a growing community and offers good documentation and support. It also integrates well with other libraries and tools in the React ecosystem.
