@headlessui/react is a set of completely unstyled, fully accessible UI components for React. It provides a collection of reusable components that you can use to build your own custom UI without any pre-defined styles. This allows for maximum flexibility and customization, as you have full control over the styling and appearance of the components.
Compared to other UI component libraries like Material-UI or Ant Design, @headlessui/react takes a different approach by focusing solely on functionality and accessibility. It provides a solid foundation for building accessible UI components, while leaving the styling decisions up to you. This makes it a great choice for projects that require a high level of customization or have strict design requirements.
The @headlessui/react package is actively maintained and regularly updated with new features and bug fixes. It is not marked as deprecated or legacy, and there are no recommendations to use different libraries.
