Repeating the tradition, we'll run React Open Source awards again in 2019 to highlight the most exciting and innovative projects of past year, highlighting lesser known projects form independant authors and maintainers.


  • Breakthrough of the year
  • Fun side project of the year
  • Most impactful contribution to the community
  • Productivity booster
  • The most exciting use of technology


We would not be here, if companies like Facebook would not invest into Open Source so heavily, as well as React would not grow that much without support of multiple great companies from across the globe.
We're really grateful for all the trust and support our partners shared with us.
