Top Open Source React Applications in 2022

React is one of the most popular front end libraries in 2022. One of the main reasons for being so popular is its community. The community behind React drives developers to create a lot of amazing open source applications with it.

In this article we will list the top open source React applications in 2022:

1- Quill Forms

Quill Forms is an open source Typeform alternative based on React Js and Typescript. With Quill Forms, you can design amazing forms with eye catching animation very easily.

As a developer, what I love at Quill Forms is the flexibility it provides for developers like me. It comes with some standard question types but you can create your own custom block very easily.

It also has another version for WordPress. So, if you are looking for a Typeform WordPress plugin, Quill Forms is your way to go!

2- React Beautiful DND

React Beautiful DND is an amazing library for creating beautiful and accessible drag and drop for lists with React.

It is very flexible and you can create simple or complex drag and drop builders very easily.

As any popular javascript package, It supports Typescript very well.

3- Slate JS

This is my favorite rich text editor. I have used many rich text editors built with React but what I love with Slate is that I can do anything with it. It doesn’t restrict you like other rich text packages. The nodes concept  is amazing really and there is a strong community behind it.

4- Gutenberg

Gutenberg is one of the best open source applications in 2022. It is developed by WordPress to have a new concept for WordPress next versions. The new concept is: blocks. Everything in WordPress will be about blocks. Whether we are talking about pages, posts, widgets or custom post types, blocks will be always the concept. Personally, it took some time to get familiar with this new concept but then, I liked it so much.
