Hi @Sinbad7. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Yes, it is possible to develop both a group booking UI and a messaging system using Shadcn UI within a Refine application. Refine's headless architecture allows seamless integration with any UI design system, including Shadcn UI. Here are the steps and considerations for integrating Shadcn UI with Refine: 1. Initialize a Refine App: - Start by initializing a Refine app. Refine supports Vite, which is compatible with Shadcn UI. 2. Install TailwindCSS and Dependencies: - Shadcn UI relies on TailwindCSS for styling. You need to install TailwindCSS and its dependencies:
npm install -D tailwindcss postcss autoprefixer

npm install -D tailwindcss postcss autoprefixer

- Initialize TailwindCSS:
npx tailwindcss init -p

npx tailwindcss init -p

- This will generate tailwind.config.js and postcss.config.js files. 3. Configure TypeScript and Vite: - Configure the TypeScript compiler to find and compile files across Shadcn paths by updating the tsconfig.json file. - Configure Vite to set up source path alias for Shadcn directories in the vite.config.ts file. 4. Initialize Shadcn Components: - Generate the necessary Shadcn components for your UI. For example, to install a button component:
npx shadcn-ui@latest add button

npx shadcn-ui@latest add button

- Shadcn components will be stored in the ./src/components/ui/ directory. 5. Customize Shadcn Components: - You can customize the Shadcn components to fit your specific UI requirements. This involves tweaking the TailwindCSS styles and component markup. 6. Develop Your UIs: - Use the Shadcn components to build your group booking UI and messaging system. Refine's headless core will allow you to manage state, data fetching, and other logic separately from the UI components. For more detailed steps and examples, you can refer to the following sections from the knowledge sources: - Integrating Shadcn with Refine (https://refine.dev/blog/shadcn-ui/#integrating-shadcn-with-refine) - Shadcn in Refine: Installing and Using Shadcn Components (https://refine.dev/blog/shadcn-ui/#shadcn-in-refine-installing-and-using-shadcn-components) By following these steps, you can leverage Shadcn UI within a Refine application to create the desired UIs for your use case. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
