About UIKit

Sendbird UIKit for React is a development kit that enables fast and easy integration of standard chat features into your React client apps. From the overall theme to individual styles such as colors and fonts, components can be fully customized to create an in-app chat experience unique to your brand identity. This library isn't designed to work with other frameworks such as Vue or Angular.

Note: UIKit for React now supports both open channels and group channels.

Two UIKit views on the Light theme are shown: list of channels, chat view.
