How should I be installing shadcn?

Hi!, I'm trying to install shadcn after installing refine (see screenshots for details of how I tried to install shadcn and refine). But when I create a new directory in pages called demo and then inside I make an index.tsx file to just try to use a component from shadcn like <Button/> I get the component without the styles, help please.

Hi @awol_. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Hmm, I don't know enough to give you a confident answer yet. The information extracts provided do not contain any details about installing or using shadcn with refine. I recommend checking the official documentation or the package's repository for accurate instructions. For styling in refine, you can use various libraries like styled-components, Tailwind CSS, or UI libraries like Ant Design, Material UI, Mantine, and Chakra UI as mentioned in the extracts. If shadcn is a styling or UI library, you might need to install it and import its styles or components in your index.tsx file. If you're still having trouble, you might find it helpful to review the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs) or ask for help in the refine community. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

which index.tsx file? @kapa.ai

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- The index.tsx file mentioned in the extracts is the entry point of your refine application. It's located in the src directory of your project. This is where your main App component is rendered to the DOM. Here's an example of what the index.tsx file might look like in a refine project:
import React from "react";
import { createRoot } from "react-dom/client";
import App from "./App";
import "./i18n";
import "./index.css";

const container = document.getElementById("root") as HTMLElement;
const root = createRoot(container);

root.render(
<React.StrictMode>
<React.Suspense fallback="loading">
<App />
</React.Suspense>
</React.StrictMode>,
);
import React from "react";
import { createRoot } from "react-dom/client";
import App from "./App";
import "./i18n";
import "./index.css";

const container = document.getElementById("root") as HTMLElement;
const root = createRoot(container);

root.render(
<React.StrictMode>
<React.Suspense fallback="loading">
<App />
</React.Suspense>
</React.StrictMode>,
);
In this file, the App component is imported and then rendered into a DOM element with the id root. This is a common pattern in React applications. If you're trying to use a component from another library (like shadcn), you would typically import it in the file where you want to use it. If you're trying to use it in a page of your application, you would import it in the corresponding page file (like demo/index.tsx), not the main index.tsx file. Please note that the information provided is based on the extracts given and may not fully apply to your specific situation. For more detailed help, please refer to the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs) or the documentation of the library you're trying to use. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Hey @awol_, the installation should not be any different from what shadcn/ui recommends in its docs. The reason of you getting an unstyled button could be a missing import of the style/css file. Check out the tailwindcss or shadcn/ui documentation to resolve it 🚀
