Converting CSS In React to Styled Components.

Styled Components is one of those interesting topics that developers love to argue about. It’s a brand new way of doing things that many people just aren’t ready to acknowledge. Regardless, just because something is different doesn’t mean it isn’t worth a try.
In this article, we are going to convert a React site using regular CSS to one that uses Styled Components. Don’t worry… if you don’t like it, you never have to use it again!

How native is React Native? | React Native vs Native App Development

If you are undertaking a mobile app development for your start-up or enterprise, you are likely wondering whether to use React Native. As a popular development framework, React Native helps you to develop near-native mobile apps. However, you are probably also wondering how close you can get to a native app by using React Native. How native is React Native?

In the article, we discuss the similarities between native mobile development and development using React Native. We also touch upon where they differ and how to bridge the gaps. Read on.

A brief introduction to React Native

Let’s briefly set the context first. We will briefly touch upon what React Native is and how it differs from earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is a popular JavaScript framework that Facebook has created. You can use this open-source framework to code natively rendering Android and iOS mobile apps. You can use it to develop web apps too.

Facebook has developed React Native based on React, its JavaScript library. The first release of React Native came in March 2015. At the time of writing this article, the latest stable release of React Native is 0.62.0, and it was released in March 2020.

Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The “Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that use React Native.

The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are as follows:

  • Performance: It delivers optimal performance.
  • Cross-platform development: You can develop both Android and iOS apps with it. The reuse of code expedites development and reduces costs.
  • UI design: React Native enables you to design simple and responsive UI for your mobile app.
  • 3rd party plugins: This framework supports 3rd party plugins.
  • Developer community: A vibrant community of developers support React Native.

Why React Native is fundamentally different from earlier hybrid frameworks

Are you wondering whether React Native is just another of those hybrid frameworks like Ionic or Cordova? It’s not! React Native is fundamentally different from these earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is very close to native. Consider the following aspects as described on the React Native website:

  • Access to many native platforms features: The primitives of React Native render to native platform UI. This means that your React Native app will use many native platform APIs as native apps would do.
  • Near-native user experience: React Native provides several native components, and these are platform agnostic.
  • The ease of accessing native APIs: React Native uses a declarative UI paradigm. This enables React Native to interact easily with native platform APIs since React Native wraps existing native code.

Due to these factors, React Native offers many more advantages compared to those earlier hybrid frameworks. We now review them.

React Styled Components Example Tutorial

React Styled Components Example Tutorial is the topic, we discuss today. The styled components remove the mapping between components and styles. This means that when you’re defining your styles, you’re creating a standard React component. It is the new way to attach the styles to the components. Styled-Components is a new CSS tool, designed by  Max Stoiber and  Glen Maddern, which helps you organize CSS in your React project. It also works well with React Native. The traditional styling of websites depends heavily on an external stylesheet with CSS. It has been challenged advent of React and component-based UI design. So the styled components will be the one possible solution.

Advantages of using Styled Components

  1. Getting rid of the mapping between styles and components.
  2. Building small and reusable components.
  3. Reducing the risk of specificity clash.

The Modern Way to Style React Apps with Styled Components

My Journey

Like many, I first started styling React with inline CSS. It was an adjustment coming from stylesheets but I really liked the ability to define localized styles and leverage the power of Javascript. Of course, there were issues such as performance and lack of pseudo-selector support, but overall I was happy with it and there was no compelling reason or deficiency to search for another way to style my components.

When I was first introduced to Styled Components, I was a bit apprehensive of the benefits, having gotten used to inline CSS for so long. After all, React documentation (at the time), still used inline CSS for all their examples. As I prototyped the framework, I discovered a best of both worlds between inline CSS and traditional stylesheets.

Styled Components

While defined very differently, Styled Components act fundamentally like React components. They both take props as input and output HTML.

Let’s take this sample button component styled similarly to Bootstrap’s buttons with Styled Components.

import styled from 'styled-components';

const Button = styled.button`
  display: inline-block;
  padding: 6px 12px;
  font-size: 16px;
  font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
  line-height: 1.5;
  color: white;
  background-color: #6c757d;
  border: none;
  border-radius: 4px;
  :not(:disabled) {
    cursor: pointer;
  :hover {
    background-color: #5a6268;

The styled component factory is imported and used to generate a button with styles using a template literal (...). This factory supports all valid HTML elements whether that be divh1p, etc. Similarly, the styles in the template literal accepts all valid CSS so you can go crazy with complex CSS selectors.

Implementing a dark theme toggle with react-redux and styled-components

To keep things simple and concise, we’ll start fresh with npx create-react-app dark-toggle . While we’re in our command line, let’s get the npm packages out of the way as well:
npm install styled-components styled-theming redux react-redux
styled-components: we’ll use this library to create isolated components that encapsulate their own styling
styled-theming: this library offers a very clean API to work with multiple themes in your styled components
redux and react-redux will do the heavy lifting regarding state management
