The AdaptivUI Styled Components Library 🎨

AdaptivUI is a design system built with accessability as the highest priority.

Getting Started


To install AdaptivUI to your project simply run yarn add adaptiv-ui || npm i adaptiv-ui and your ready to hook it up!

CSS overhaul and AppWrapper

AdaptivUI comes with a css file you can import that includes a nice subtle style overhaul and a normalize. Just add import "adaptiv-ui/css/main.css"; to the top of your root index.js!

AppWrapper is a powerful component that lets you set the background and fonts of your application.


// src/App.js
export default function App() {
  return (
        /* This prop lets you easily set a responsive image as your background */
      bg={/* Lets you set the background color of the app */}
      head_font={/* Lets you change the font of all the headers in the app */}
      font={/* Lets you can the font of everything else in the app */}
      <Route path="/" exact component={Dashboard} />

Style Props and Maps

AdaptivUI comes with some unique style props and maps that make laying out and editing you page very easily.

Style props need to be given a value and the associated

These are the props you will probably use most often. I'll break them down into catagories.



CSS Property Name Prop Name Default value
flex-direction direction row
justify-content justify flex-start
align-items align normal
align-content content stretch


<Flex direction="column" align="center">

Style Maps:

CSS Property Name Style Prop Property Value
flex-direction col column
flex-direction revrow row-reverse
flex-direction revcol column-reverse
justify-content jc_end center
justify-content jc_center space-between
justify-content jc_between space-around
justify-content jc_around space-evenly
justify-content jc_evenly flex-start
align-items ai_center center
align-items ai_start flex-start
align-items ai_end flex-end
align-items ai_stretch stretch
align-content ac_center center
align-content ac_start flex-start
align-content ac_end flex-end
align-content ac_between space-between
align-content ac_around space-around
align-content ac_evenly space-evenly
flex-direction drape column
align-items drape center


// col changes flex-direction to column
// ai_center changes align items to center
<Flex col ai_center>...</Flex>
// drape changes flex-direction to column and align-items to center
<Flex drape>...</Flex>

Sizing and color props


CSS Property Name Prop Name Default value
height h auto
width w auto
width && height sqr auto
border-radius radius 0.3rem
border border none
margin m 0
padding p 0
background bg none

New Semantic Components!

Now featuring new semantic components! Main, Section and Aside. They work much like Flex but with flex direction default to column and align items default to center. Main difference is that they break down into their sematic counterparts instead of div's.


AppWrapper is a div that is meant to wrap your app page, where you hold your routes. It's purpose is to easily change the font and background of the whole application.


This should wrap every parent component. It set's min height to 100% view height, and max width is set to 100% view width. This makes flexing items around your page a dream. Default flex-direction is set to column instead of row and align-items is set to.


A text component that lets you set size, font and font weight easily.


// Bold text, font size 2rem, text align center, font Georgia
<Text bold lf ta_center font="Georgia">
  Some text here...


Box is a div with lots of useful props. Images inside the box are set to width: 100%; height: auto; so they will size responsively. Just adjust the with of the Box to size the image.


/* Placing the image in a Box with a width of 5rem
will responsively size it to a width of 50px */
<Box w="5rem">
  <img src={`image source`} alt="alt text" >

Box's also have a prop for background, so you can set a background color, a width and a height and you have a colored box. One thing that makes Box & FlexBox unique is that you can set shape props on them! So just by adding the prop star you turn the div into a star. See list of style maps below for full list of shape props you can choose from. You can even create your own by using the clip-path prop, clip!


<Flex w="20rem" h="10rem" jc_around ai_center shade>
  <Box star bg="red" sqr="5rem" />
  <Box message bg="green" sqr="5rem" />
  <Box octagon bg="blue" sqr="5rem" />

Will look like...

Shape image

I also find that Box's make good spacers, between elements!

// This puts a 20px spacer between Header, Body and Footer components
<Flex drape>
  <Header />
  <Box h="2rem" />
  <Body />
  <Box h="2rem" />
  <Footer />


In order to pull off a modal you're going to need 2 components: Modal and useModal. In order to make Modal work your going to need to pass it an "isActive" prop and a "toggle" prop. You can get both of these props off of useModal hook:

import { useModal } from "adaptiv-ui";

const [isActive, toggle] = useModal();

Then you can plug them into Modal and you're good to go!


import React from "react";
import { useModal, Modal, Flex, Button, Text } from "adaptiv-ui";

export default function Component() {
  const [isActive, toggle] = useModal();

  return (
      <Button onClick={toggle}>Toggle</Button>
      <Modal isActive={isActive} toggle={toggle}>
        <Flex w="40rem" h="40rem" drape>
          <Text>I'm a modal, yo!</Text>
          <Button autoFocus onClick={() => alert("Thanks for clicking me!")}>
            Click me!
          <Button onClick={toggle}>Close</Button>

Tool Tip

TooTip component has all the same props as Flex, but it has a special feature! After adding your element, you can place a div under it with a className of "tooltip". Whatever you put inside this "tooltip" div will be invisible until you hover over or focus on the element you nested inside your ToolTip component. In addition to the Flex props, there are a couple of extra props that ToolTip has so that you can edit your "tooltip" element and position.

tt_w: edits the width of the tooltip tt_h: edits the height of the tooltip tt_color: edits the color of the tooltip tt_bg: edits the background color of the tooltip tt_top: edits the top position of the tooltip tt_right: edits the right position of the tooltip tt_bottom: edits the bottom position of the tooltip tt_left: edits the left position of the tooltip tt_radius: edits the radius of the tooltip tt_zIndex: edits the z index of the tooltip


// using tt props to edit tool tip position and size
<ToolTip tt_left="105%" tabIndex={0} tt_w="12rem" tt_top="25%">
  {/* These two Box's make up the content that we want to add a tooltip too */}
  <Box bg={theme.primary} circle p="2rem">
    <Box sqr="2rem" window bg="white" />
  {/* Our "tooltip" div is the container for what we want to show in our
  tooltip on focus or hover. */}
  <div class="tooltip">
    <Text bold lf ta_center>
      Tooltip text

Tooltip image


Container is a component that's main purpose is to provide a background image. It also can set colors as the background but the css for images is set for responsiveness. If you need things to lay on top of a background image this is the component to use. Just wrap the content in Container and set bg_src prop to the location/URL of your image. It also has flex enabled and all sizing props. By default justify content is column and align items is center. You can change these individually to you own desire. You can also use the across props to set them to flex-start / normal respectively.


  {/* Add invert prop to make text white instead of black */}
  <Container bg_src={image} h="50vh" invert>


It's a beautiful button! It has some color props to quickly and easily change the color scheme of the button.

List of color props:

  • primitive (default)
  • primary
  • secondary


Looks exactly like a button, but is a Link from @reach/router.

List of color props:

  • primitive (default)
  • primary
  • secondary


<Linkton to="/">Go home</Linkton>


It's a form with flex-box (direction: column, align: center by default) and some basic additional props.


A better looking input to use.

Importing adaptiv-ui css and styled components 🚀

It's highly recommended to pull in adaptiv-ui's global style overhauls, just import "adaptiv-ui/css/main.css" in your root index.js file. Feel free to check out the code to see what is under the hood! 🔥

All styled components get exported from adaptiv-ui. So all you need to do is deconstruct the component(s) you want from "adaptiv-ui".



import React from "react";
import { Wrapper, Flex, Button } from "adaptiv-ui";

export default function MyComponent() {
  return (
      <Flex drape w="80vw">
        <h2>Card Header</h2>
        <p>Card text.</p>
          <Button primary>Left Button</Button>
          <Button secondary>Right Button</Button>

Theme Color Variables 🖌

If you want to use the color variables in just throw in theme to your AdaptivUI import: import { theme } from "adaptiv-ui"


import React from "react";
import { Wrapper, Flex, Button, theme } from "adaptiv-ui";

export default function MyComponent() {
  return (
    <Wrapper bg={theme.gray8}>
      <Flex w="80vw" drape>
        <h2>Card Header</h2>
        <p>Card text.</p>
          <Button primary>Left Button</Button>
          <Button secondary>Right Button</Button>

Flex and Box Shape Props!

Flex's and Box's have unique shape props you can use to turn your div's into awesome little shapes! Highly recommend using the sqr prop to set height and width to equal size's and giving a background (bg) prop color since the default is set to none.

You can also set a custom clip path with the clip prop.
