useEffect sometimes fires before paint

In this article, Vladimir Klepov explains how and why updating state in useLayoutEffect makes every useEffect from the same render run before paint, effectively turning them into layout effects.


React Aria Components (alpha)

A library of unstyled components built on top of the React Aria hooks. It provides a simpler way to build accessible components with custom styles, while offering the flexibility to drop down to hooks for even more customizability where needed.

CSS Components

A simple, lightweight, and customizable CSS components library that lets you wrap your CSS styles in a component-like structure. Describes itself as "not another styling system, but a lightweight utility to compose CSS styles into standard React components."
