Hi @_mercury. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- The design between different UI libraries can vary significantly, and the choice between Mantine and Ant Design depends on your specific needs and preferences. Mantine (https://mantine.dev) is a lightweight and easy-to-use library that provides a wide range of components and hooks for building high-performance web applications. It is known for its simple structure, modularity, and extensive customization options. Mantine's components are lightweight, ensuring fast loading times and smooth user interactions. It also offers a wide array of components that cater to various UI requirements, including forms, inputs, navigation, notifications, modals, and theming. On the other hand, Ant Design (https://ant.design/) is an enterprise-level UI toolkit that Refine uses to control and work with form data. It supports custom form items and can be useful when working with markdown, JSON based rich text, and HTML. Refine supports both Mantine and Ant Design, along with other popular UI frameworks like Material UI and Chakra UI. This means you can build any type of CRUD app with your preferred UI library without the need for extensive manual configurations. Refine is headless by default, which means developers can implement any UI framework or use custom CSS to style their apps. In terms of design, Ant Design and Mantine have different styles and approaches, so you might want to explore both and see which one aligns better with your design preferences and project needs. As for performance, while it's true that some UI libraries might be more performance-heavy than others, the impact on your app's overall performance would also depend on other factors like your app's architecture, the complexity of your UI, and how well you optimize your code. In conclusion, both Mantine and Ant Design have their strengths, and Refine provides support for both. Your choice should depend on your specific needs, preferences, and the requirements of your project.
