Does anyone get overwhelmed with UI styling? I kinda get sick with all the different variations of how something can be. I’ve been focusing on React and python. I started a React project after months of python concentrating.... UI is throwing me off a little. Are there any main reasons why things arnt auto imported, connecting or laying out right?
Those are the problems I’m having

Yes, to me, it's the hardest part of web dev. It's way too fine grained in my opinion. But here's 2 tips that help majorly:

  • Use grid as much as possible.
  • Use SCSS as it easily goes as deep as needed.

It's still tedious and just takes time to get it right.

I primarily use React, which is a wrapper around HTML DOM. So styling is normally done with CSS.

Starting from scratch has been painful to me so I tend to use Tailwind CSS nowadays to bootstrap and prototype.

UI packages such as Material UI or Chakra UI (for React) do provide built-in styles but normally you'd either change the theme (bootstrap problem).

Downside is that overriding styles can be very tricky for inner components.
