Trust Me, You Don’t Need That Component Library

No one’s going to deny how easy it is to download something off of the npm registry and start to use it right away. However there are issues, as there always are, when you start incorporating scale and complexity into your app. Subscribing to a large, feature-and-dependency-heavy library locks you into conventions that – lets be honest – probably don’t fit your product’s vision; thus starting the “time of great concession”.

I’m going to show you that you don’t need that new hotness of a UI library and you can take back your application’s size, freedom, and independence without sacrificing its quality; just by embracing a few HTML & CSS fundamentals.
