Introduction to Bulma with React

Introduction to Bulma with React - In this article you will learn the basics of using Bulma components in your React apps using the react-bulma-components library.

I’ll come out and say it, I’m still a fan of Bootstrap. With that, I’m not oblivious to the many alternatives that are floating around out there. One of the more inspired CSS frameworks I have come across recently is Bulma. It does everything I need a CSS framework to do and does a great job of simplifying certain things while at the same time making them more powerful. Oh, and there’s no shortage of React wrappers for it!

For this article we’re going to be playing around with <a href="https://github.com/couds/react-bulma-components" target="_blank">react-bulma-components</a>, one of the more popular implementations of the Bulma CSS framework in React.

Not only is this library very well documented, it appears to support just about everything available in Bulma and is currently tracking against the latest release of Bulma.

So let’s go!

Getting Started

To get started with react-bulma-components we’ll need to add it to our project:

Via npm

$ npm install --save react-bulma-components

Or via Yarn

$ yarn add react-bulma-components

With our dependency added, next we’ll need to import.

What I found great about this library is that you can import “full” versions of the components that come with the associated styles and eliminate the need to link to or import any additional styles.

If you wanted the Button component in all of it’s stylistic glory, simply:

import { Button } from "react-bulma-components/full";

The Components

As mentioned, the react-bulma-components library supports just about everything Bulma has to offer as nice React-ready components. Here’s a run down of what you will have available out of the box:

  • Box - A white box with a shadow to wrap up content.
  • Breadcrumb - Navigational breadcrumb menu.
  • Button - That clicky thing usually found on forms ;)
  • Card - A more formal “card”-like component (more than just a box).
  • Column - Wrapper and columns for the grid system.
  • Container - A no-frills content wrapper that responds to screen size.
  • Content - A generic wrapper for content that contains HTML.
  • Dropdown - An interactive drop down menu.
  • Footer - A wrapper for page footer content, can contain anything though!
  • Form - Form controls such a Form.Input and the like.
  • Heading - Not to be confused with a header, this is for h# type content.
  • Hero - This post needs a hero… a/k/a a jumbotron.
  • Icon - A wrapper for any icon font you’re comfortable with (Font Awesome, et cetera).
  • Image - A wrapper for responsive image content.
  • Level - Similar to columns, allows you to horizontally align content.
  • Loader - Personal fave, a simple loader (which can be used with Buttons!)
  • Media - A CSS framework wouldn’t be complete with a social media UI object.
  • Message - Similar to a growl notification.
  • Menu - A vertical menu for all your side menu needs!
  • Modal - Classic modal UI component that can hold any content you’d like.
  • Navbar - Not to be confused with Heading, this component makes a good header navigation bar.
  • Notification - Similar to Message but without a title bar.
  • Pagination - For all of your pages and pages of content.
  • Panel - A control for compact controls. A hybrid menu and card, super powerful.
  • Progress - Native HTML progress bars that can be colorized and sized easily.
  • Section - Container for grouping content on your page.
  • Tabs - Another horizontal nav with a “tabular” look and feel.
  • Table - As per the documentation: “The inevitable HTML table”.
  • Tag - You may refer to this as a badge or a label.
  • Tile - One of the more inspired components, a simple way to implement a Pinterest/Metro-like tiled UI.

More than enough to really do some damage on your next project!

The Basics

Like most CSS frameworks out there, Bulma comes with styles for your common components and a series of customizations that can be accomplished by adding different classes to your elements.

react-bulma-components simplifies things further by providing components for each of the major elements, and eliminates the need for juggling class names in favor of passing in properties to your components.

Want to make a large button that uses the danger color, has rounded corners and is an outline? No problem:

<Button color="danger" size="large" rounded outlined>Wowza!</Button>

This is all well and good but what if we wanted that button to be a link (i.e. an anchor element)?

Fortunately, all of the react-bulma-components can accept a renderAs property which allows you to define what sort of element should be used to render the component.

Without the renderAs property the aforementioned Button will be rendered as… you guessed it! A button element.

Along with the renderAs property we should also include an href to tell it where to send folks when they click on the link:

  Wowza, it's a link!

In fact, all of our Bulma components can accept whatever properties you may throw that them. That means you could always do some advanced styling with a style properties or add some additional CSS classes with className.

When using className, any classes you supply will be prepended to the library-generated list of Bulma class names.


Similar to most modern CSS frameworks, Bulma comes with a color theme that uses some semantic naming conventions.

These theme colors include primary, link, info, success, warning, and danger.

In addition, there are also some more literal colors available: black, dark, light, and white.

Components that support colors accept a color property:

<Button color="success">Alligators are the best!</Button>

Which will assign the correct color class to the rendered element. Because this color property assigns classes back to the rendered element, you can’t just assign an arbitrary color value.


Working with sizes with Bulma is actually a bit less straightforward than working with colors. This is because some components (like Button) use textual names for the sizes while others (like Heading) use numerical values:

<Heading size={1}>Large Heading</Heading>
<Heading size={2}>Not So Large Heading</Heading>

<Button size="large">Large Button</Button>
<Button size="small">Small Button</Button>

For components that accept textual sizes, you have small, normal, medium, and large available. The normal size is the one that is used by default when no sizeis specified.

Just Works” Grid

Something that the Bulma marketing touts is that their grid system is “the simplest grid system”.

Having used a number of grid systems, and even writing my own back in the day, I will admit it’s pretty freakin’ simple to use.

Even though it’s simple, it’s still feature-rich with things like responsive breakpoints, column offsets and nesting.

What I found very impressive is that while the Bulma grid system does work quite well in a standard 12 column layout, it doesn’t force you into said paradigm.

This flexibility is also where the size property takes a turn. Unlike a Button that uses the smalllarge naming convention, Column components use a different set of size names that correspond to how much space the column will occupy.

Column sizes are also divided into two types, percentages and by number of columns in a 12 column layout.

For percentage based sizing you can set size to be one-fifth, one-quarter, one-third, half, two-thirds, or three-quarters:

  <Columns.Column size="one-fifth">20%</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size="one-quarter">25%</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size="one-third">33.333333333%</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size="half">50%</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column>Also 50%</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size="two-thirds">66.666666667%</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size="three-quarters">75%</Columns.Column>

And for sizes based on a 12 column layout you set the size to the numeric value between 1 and 12:

  <Columns.Column size={1}>One</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size={2}>Two</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size={3}>Three</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size={4}>Four</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size={5}>Five</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size={6}>Six</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size={7}>Seven</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size={8}>Eight</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size={9}>Nine</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size={10}>Ten</Columns.Column>
  <Columns.Column size={11}>Eleven</Columns.Column>


With over 30,000 stars on GitHub, it’s hard to consider Bulma just another CSS framework in an already crowded space.

I personally found it quite familiar coming from other CSS frameworks but it also brought it’s own level of simplicity and flexibility that made it easy to pick up.

Couple this simplicity with the React bindings provided by react-bulma-components, I will definitely be considering it for my next project.

I hope you found this high-level overview of Bulma and react-bulma-components informative and helpful, cheers!

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.

How to Select and Hire the Best React JS and React Native Developers?

Since March 2020 reached 556 million monthly downloads have increased, It shows that React JS has been steadily growing. React.js also provides a desirable amount of pliancy and efficiency for developing innovative solutions with interactive user interfaces. It’s no surprise that an increasing number of businesses are adopting this technology. How do you select and recruit React.js developers who will propel your project forward? How much does a React developer make? We’ll bring you here all the details you need.

What is React.js?

Facebook built and maintains React.js, an open-source JavaScript library for designing development tools. React.js is used to create single-page applications (SPAs) that can be used in conjunction with React Native to develop native cross-platform apps.

React vs React Native

  • React Native is a platform that uses a collection of mobile-specific components provided by the React kit, while React.js is a JavaScript-based library.
  • React.js and React Native have similar syntax and workflows, but their implementation is quite different.
  • React Native is designed to create native mobile apps that are distinct from those created in Objective-C or Java. React, on the other hand, can be used to develop web apps, hybrid and mobile & desktop applications.
  • React Native, in essence, takes the same conceptual UI cornerstones as standard iOS and Android apps and assembles them using React.js syntax to create a rich mobile experience.

What is the Average React Developer Salary?

In the United States, the average React developer salary is $94,205 a year, or $30-$48 per hour, This is one of the highest among JavaScript developers. The starting salary for junior React.js developers is $60,510 per year, rising to $112,480 for senior roles.

* React.js Developer Salary by Country

  • United States- $120,000
  • Canada - $110,000
  • United Kingdom - $71,820
  • The Netherlands $49,095
  • Spain - $35,423.00
  • France - $44,284
  • Ukraine - $28,990
  • India - $9,843
  • Sweden - $55,173
  • Singapore - $43,801

In context of software developer wage rates, the United States continues to lead. In high-tech cities like San Francisco and New York, average React developer salaries will hit $98K and $114per year, overall.

However, the need for React.js and React Native developer is outpacing local labour markets. As a result, many businesses have difficulty locating and recruiting them locally.

It’s no surprise that for US and European companies looking for professional and budget engineers, offshore regions like India are becoming especially interesting. This area has a large number of app development companies, a good rate with quality, and a good pool of React.js front-end developers.

As per Linkedin, the country’s IT industry employs over a million React specialists. Furthermore, for the same or less money than hiring a React.js programmer locally, you may recruit someone with much expertise and a broader technical stack.

How to Hire React.js Developers?

  • Conduct thorough candidate research, including portfolios and areas of expertise.
  • Before you sit down with your interviewing panel, do some homework.
  • Examine the final outcome and hire the ideal candidate.

Why is React.js Popular?

React is a very strong framework. React.js makes use of a powerful synchronization method known as Virtual DOM, which compares the current page architecture to the expected page architecture and updates the appropriate components as long as the user input.

React is scalable. it utilises a single language, For server-client side, and mobile platform.

React is steady.React.js is completely adaptable, which means it seldom, if ever, updates the user interface. This enables legacy projects to be updated to the most new edition of React.js without having to change the codebase or make a few small changes.

React is adaptable. It can be conveniently paired with various state administrators (e.g., Redux, Flux, Alt or Reflux) and can be used to implement a number of architectural patterns.

Is there a market for React.js programmers?
The need for React.js developers is rising at an unparalleled rate. React.js is currently used by over one million websites around the world. React is used by Fortune 400+ businesses and popular companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Glassdoor and Cloudflare.

Final thoughts:

As you’ve seen, locating and Hire React js Developer and Hire React Native developer is a difficult challenge. You will have less challenges selecting the correct fit for your projects if you identify growing offshore locations (e.g. India) and take into consideration the details above.

React 18: Things You Need To Know About React JS Latest Version

The most awaited version of React 18 is finally out now. Its team has finally revealed the alpha version of React 18 and its plan, though the official launch is still pending. This time the team has tried something and released the plan first to know their user feedback because the last version of React 17 was not that much appreciated among developers.

According to Front-end Frameworks SurveyReact JS has ranked top in the list of most loved frameworks. Thus, the developer communities expect a bit higher from the framework, so they are less appreciative of the previous launch.
ReactJS stats.pngSo, this time React 18 will be a blast. For beginners, the team is working on a new approach. They have called a panel of experts, library authors, educators, and developers to take part in a working group. Initially, it will be a small group.

I am not a part of this release but following the team on their GitHub discussion group. After gathering the information from there, I can say that they have planned much better this time.

React 17 was not able to meet the developer's community. The focus was all primarily centered on making it easier to upgrade React itself. React 18 release will be the opposite. It has a lot of features for react developers.
