Motivation

Create modern mobile/web applications with the retro and old school Windows 95 style. Our goal is not to exactly recreate Windows95 components, but to provide a solid component library for current scenarios.

Getting Started

First, install component library and styled-components in your project directory:

# yarn
$ yarn add react95 styled-components

# npm
$ npm i react95 styled-components

Apply style reset, wrap your app content with ThemeProvider with theme of your choice... and you are ready to go! πŸš€

import React from 'react';
import { createGlobalStyle, ThemeProvider } from 'styled-components';
import { reset, themes, List, ListItem, Divider } from 'react95';

const ResetStyles = createGlobalStyle`
  ${reset}
`;

const App = () => (
  <div>
    <ResetStyles />
    <ThemeProvider theme={themes.default}>
      <List>
        <ListItem>🎀 Sing</ListItem>
        <ListItem>πŸ’ƒπŸ» Dance</ListItem>
        <Divider />
        <ListItem disabled>😴 Sleep</ListItem>
      </List>
    </ThemeProvider>
  </div>
);

export default App;

You can view components on Storybook. If you want to play with it locally, simply clone the repo and run commands below:

# yarn
$ yarn && yarn storybook

# npm
$ npm i && npm run storybook

Submit your project

Apps built with React95 will be submitted on the official React95 website 🀟🏻

Contributing

Any help from UI / UX designers would be EXTREMELY appreciated. The challenge is to come up with new component designs / layouts that are broadly used in modern UIs, that weren't present back in 95.

There's a lot to do. If you want to help with the project, feel free to open pull requests and submit issues. Let's make UI great again πŸ”₯

Roadmap

There's quite a few things to be done:

  • Styled system
  • Lots of tacky color schemes 🌈
  • Custom icons maybe? (Emojis from Windows 10 seem to go very well with the lib)
  • Typography
  • Range slider component
  • Avatar component
  • Components common in all modern UIs (FAB, Badge, Avatar, Snackbar, Steppers)

And the boring stuff too:

  • Testing
  • Semantic release
You can’t perform that action at this time.
