ReactStrap vs React-BootStrap

React Bootstrap

The most popular front-end framework Rebuilt for React.

In Their Website

  • React-Bootstrap is compatible with various versions of Bootstrap.
  • React-Bootstrap replaces the Bootstrap JavaScript.
  • Each component has been built from scratch as a true React component, without unneeded dependencies like jQuery.

ReactStrap

Simple React Bootstrap 4 components.Stateless React Components for Bootstrap 4.

  • This library contains React Bootstrap 4 components that favor composition and control.
  • The library does not depend on jQuery or Bootstrap javascript.

react-bootstrap vs reactstrap

Both work in the same way

			
					import { StrictMode } from "react";
import ReactDOM from "react-dom";

import "bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css";

import App from "./App";

const rootElement = document.getElementById("root");
ReactDOM.render(
  <StrictMode>
    <App />
  </StrictMode>,
  rootElement
);

			
	

The props passed to the components can have different names depending on the package.

			
					import React from "react";

import { Button as ReactBootstrapButton } from "react-bootstrap";
import { Button as ReactstrapButton } from "reactstrap";

const App = () => (
  <>
    <ReactBootstrapButton variant="danger">React BootStrap</ReactBootstrapButton>
    <ReactstrapButton color="danger">Reactstrap</ReactstrapButton>
  </>
);

export default App;

			
	
  • The props names are different color and variant, but rendered HTML is same.

They are 2 different libraries but both based on Bootstrap components. Some little statistics about them NPM Trends.

I prefer react-bootstrap which makes code clean and easy to use with props.
