gluiwork in progress

A component collection based on visionOS UI design system and built using Radix UI, Tailwind CSS and shadcn/ui.


glui is a component collection based on shadcn/ui. As such, all prerequisites of shadcn/ui apply to glui as well. In other words, you have to use Next.js, React and Tailwind CSS. Support for other frameworks and libraries is not planned.

You are advised to be familiar with Tailwind CSS before using this collection.

It is also recommended that you use TypeScript. Only basic understanding of TypeScript is required. All the components are written in TypeScript, and I don't provide the JavaScript versions for them, so if for some reasons you don't know basic TypeScript and are not willing to learn it, at least you should learn how to remove typings to convert the provided TypeScript files into JavaScript.


This collection is not a published package

This collection is distributed via copy-paste, not via a central package registry such as NPM. In other words, you do not do something like npm install @joulev/glui to add the collection to your project. You just need to copy-paste the necessary components to use it as your own components. This is the same distribution method as shadcn/ui.

Why copy-paste? You as the user will own the components and can make changes to them as you like. You can also easily remove the components you don't need. This means you have complete control over all glui components. For more information, check shadcn/ui's reasons behind this distribution method.

Installation from scratch

You can simply use this starter repository to get started. It has all the necessary configurations and basic setups, with two components preinstalled (link and card). Other components can then be installed normally by copy-pasting.

Installation to an existing project

Warning: It is not easy and you need some level of experience with Tailwind CSS custom configurations to continue.

  1. Ensure that project meets the prerequisites above.

    I will assume you use the src directory in your Next.js app. If you don't use src, simply remove it from the paths in the following steps.

  2. Install the necessary dependencies: npm install [email protected] tailwind-merge tailwindcss-animate – you can use yarn, pnpm or bun if you prefer.

  3. If you already have the following files in your project, modify them to also integrate the corresponding files from the starter repository. If you do not have those files in your project yet, copy the files from the starter repository to your project.

    • tailwind.config.ts or an equivalent Tailwind CSS configuration file

    • postcss.config.js – glui requires you to configure PostCSS to also allow CSS nesting

    • Global CSS file, which is most likely placed in src/app/globals.css

  4. Copy the following files from the starter repository:

    • src/types/fix/react.ts: This file is a patch to the React typings to make TypeScript accept CSS variables in the style prop of HTML elements. If you don't use TypeScript, you can ignore this file.

    • src/lib/cn.ts

    • src/components/ui/hooks/use-hover-background.ts

  5. Add the text-text-primary class to your body element, or by other means ensure that text-text-primary is applied to the text colour of glui components.

  6. Fix import statements in the copied files to match your project's directory structure.

  7. Now you can start copy-pasting the components and use them in your project.

Copy-pasting components

The component sources can be found in the repository for this website. Select the one you want, then copy the file to under src/components/ui in your project.

For example, to install the Link component, simply create src/components/ui/link.tsx with the same content as the source file.

You might need to update the import statements in the copied files to match your project's directory structure.

Note that some components have dependencies. For example, Button depends on Link, so if you want to install Button you also need to ensure Link has been installed. Another example would be the Tweet component, which requires react-tweet, so you need to install this package for the component to work.


You can check the example usage of all components to see how to use them. Yeah I should put the source code of the examples here, but I'm too lazy to do that. Maybe later.

Anyway, most components are based on shadcn/ui, hence the usage should be identical to the shadcn/ui counterparts.

I will continue to be mad about the names. "use server" should have been "use action" (after reading old Next PRs, I learned it used to be called this) "use client" should have been "use interactive" (since 90%+ of the time you want client-side JS it's for some amount of…

Future components

There are no planned new components at the moment. I will add new ones if I need them in this website. In the meantime, if you want to suggest a new component, feel free to contact me, or even better, create a pull request with the new component. All contributions are welcome.
