New Components

There is an issue for every new component labeled new component. Just comment on the issue you'd like to take.

Help Wanted Label

Any other issue labeled help wanted is also ready for a PR.


There are a number of packages that a UI library needs to create great UI components. Take a look at SUIR's /src/lib as an example. This core library enables the SUIR features we love today such as shorthand props, event stack handling, auto controlled state, controlling the rendered component, and more.

Other libraries in the wild have some of these features and some of their own. It is our desire that the community share the best UI component practices in a core library to the greater benefit of the web.

A shared library means more great ideas and more engineering support for features and bug fixes. More importantly, it means more consistency in UI components on the web. We're really excited to see just how far we can take this aspect of collaboration.


You can think of Stardust as the internals of a good component library. This encompasses everything that one UI library may need, starting from the common UI component available on the web, custom theming, accessibility and rtl. Currently there is an React implementation of it, available here: stardust-ui/react.
