Getting started

Ariakit is an open source library that provides lower-level React components and hooks for building accessible web apps, design systems, and component libraries.


First, make sure you have react and react-dom installed. Ariakit works with React 17 and above.

npm install react react-dom

Then, install Ariakit:

npm install ariakit


Ariakit exports a set of unstyled React components and hooks that you can use to build accessible web apps. For example, you can use the Button component to create a button:

import { Button } from "ariakit/button";
import "./style.css";

export default function Example() {
  return <Button className="button">Button</Button>;


You can also use Ariakit directly in the browser via a CDN. This method is only for development purposes and is not recommended for production.
