Getting started

npm install --save @reui/reui @reui/tailwind-config

Tailwindcss config

The @reui/tailwind-config package includes a preset and content string generator to ensure that all of reUI’s CSS classnames are added into your built CSS. Ensure at a minimum you include the preset and content declarations in your Tailwind configuration:

const path = require('path');

/** @type {import('tailwindcss').Config} */
module.exports = {
presets: [require('@reui/tailwind-config')],
content: [
// This may differ for your project
// Include the reUI code so that Tailwind includes all of the correct classNames
`${path.join(path.dirname(require.resolve('@reui/reui')), '..', '..')}/**/*.{js,cjs}`,

A primary color is provided by the configuration for you as well as some of the base Tailwindcss colors, including but not limited to gray, red, white, black, and translucent. It may not be suitable for your application, so if you would like to override this color, at a minimum, you must provide colors and color scales for the following:

const { preset, content } = require('@reui/tailwind-config');

/** @type {import('tailwindcss').Config} */
module.exports = {
presets: [preset],
extend: {
theme: {
colors: {
// Color scales: 50, 100-900
primary: {
50: '#f6f9f8',
100: '#e3f1f7',
200: '#c1e2ec',
300: '#8ec3d3',
400: '#539eb2',
500: '#3d7d91',
600: '#326374',
700: '#294a58',
800: '#1d323e',
900: '#111e29',


This context wrapper provides icons for various necessary UI elements across the components.

Icons should all be JSX components that return <svg /> elements and accept all SVG props, eg: React.ComponentType<React.ComponentProps<'svg'>>.

import { IconProvider } from '@reui/reui';
import { CheckIcon } from '@heroicons/react/24/solid';

export function App() {
return <IconProvider value={{ CheckIcon }}>{/* rest of the app */}</IconProvider>;
