NativeBase had become a staple in the toolkit of many development teams, appreciated for its versatility, customizable theme capabilities, and robust UI components library. It significantly enhanced the efficiency and performance of React and React Native projects on the frontend. However, the era of NativeBase as we knew it has come to a close.
In a notice issued in July 2023, NativeBase officially announced the cessation of updates and major support for their library. Instead, they are wholeheartedly endorsing the adoption of Gluestack-UI, a completely revamped library. UX Neighbor had the opportunity to explore the beta version of this new component library, and the initial impressions are promising. Whether you are an individual developer or part of a development team seeking to create a UI with a unique and branded appearance, Gluestack-UI should undoubtedly be under your consideration.
