Maker UI

This project is currently in active development and the API is subject to change.

If you arrived here from the Gatsby Theme Store, Gatsby Theme Elements is no longer supported and has now become a React component library.

Build React apps with a responsive layout system powered by Emotion.

Maker UI helps you design accessible, responsive apps that can be customized in an infinite number of ways. Use it to quickly prototype and deploy a polished layout so you can focus on developing great content or adding new features to your project.

Getting Started

npm i maker-ui

Maker UI uses a configuration object and optional custom components to build complex layouts in seconds. Your custom options configuration determines how each layout should behave and appear.

See the documentation for more details on setting up your project.

Layout Components

If your design requires more customization or if you need conditional layouts depending on a page route or variable, you can build with Maker UI's layout components:

// basic layout component usage
import * as React from 'react'
import {
} from 'maker-ui'

import { options, menu } from './config' // your custom configurations
import Logo from './Logo' // your logo component

const MyLayout = (props) => (
  <Layout options={options}>
      <Navbar logo={<Logo />} menu={menu} />
      <MobileMenu menu={menu} />
      <Sidebar>Your custom sidebar component</Sidebar>
    <Footer>Your custom footer</Footer>

export default MyLayout

Responsive Styles

All layout components and JSX primitives can be styled with the responsive css and breakpoints props.

/** Equivalent CSS:
 * color: red;
 * @media screen and (min-width: 768px) {
 *    color: blue;
 * }
 * @media screen and (min-width: 960px) {
 *    color: green;
 * }

<Div breakpoints={[768, 960]} css={{ color: ['red', 'blue', 'green'] }}>
  Hello world

This example would set the div's default color to red and generate min-width media queries so the color is blue at 768px and green at 960px. Never write a media query again!

Maker Components

Maker UI also has an optional package @maker-ui/elements that exports a variety of common components you might need for your site:

  • Carousel
  • Accordion
  • Modal
  • Lightbox
  • Tabs
  • Announcement
  • TreeMenu
  • Popover, Tooltip, and Dropdown
  • Spinner
  • CookieNotice
  • TableOfContents
