FilamentPHP is one of the best form builders, with little time and effort you can have a complete CRUD panel, however, there are some scenarios in which using a tool like it is not favorable. TallStackUI, on the other hand, is a component library for UI, that is: TallStackUI does not generate PHP code, and it does not take care of business rules, so the code that makes the application work is completely under your control, only the UI - visually, will be available through the TallStackUI components. If you need something fast, tools like Filament are always the best way to go. However, if you or your project are careful about dependencies, or you want to have control over all PHP code but save time just on the UI, TallStackUI is the best way.
TallStackUI was created and is maintained by people who, in addition to being users of the library itself, are people fully connected with the TallStack ecosystem, mainly Laravel and Livewire, capable developers who know everything about this ecosystem. Therefore, when using TallStackUI the biggest guarantee you and your project will have is frequent updates. After all, the TallStackUI developer team are also TallStackUI users. No updates for TallStackUI = no updates for our projects, which doesn't make sense.
Yes, totally! TallStackUI components support a prefix key, which consists of prefixing TallStackUI components avoiding conflicts in component names of other libraries.
From concept to creation, TallStackUI was designed to offer forms of personalization, so you can personalize TallStackUI components however you want, using two different methods available, which we will explain below.
Soft Personalization is an innovative and unique method, created exclusively by TallStackUI, which allows components to be personalized at runtime, through a service provider. The idea behind soft personalization is to tap into personalizable blocks of each component and change your content. Although it may seem limited, soft personalization is very powerful and offers, in addition to facilitating the personalization process, countless possibilities including a way to personalize "inline" components, that is, personalization is applied with a kind of scope to a single component instead of all components.
While soft personalization is, let's say, superficial, but still powerful for tasks of changing the original content, deep personalization consists of extending the original PHP component classes and changing their content as you want, as well as directly changing the related Blade files to the component. This method of personalization will undoubtedly require more technical knowledge, which is why Soft Personalization was created so that even if the developer is a beginner, he can personalize the components with ease.
Internally, yes. We like to prepare things with surprises, so the roadmap remains solely with the team, internally. We currently have over 30 components and expect the release of over 15 more new components in 2024.
No! As we find things worthy of release we simply ship them immediately, except for days like Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. That's why it's always good to pay attention and periodically update the TallStackUI in your project. To do that, just run this command through your terminal in the root of the project:
Although there is a sponsorship program, which raises funds to encourage the work of developers of tools like TallStackUI, TallStackUI itself is free and does not require payment. However, if you agree to support the library, you can do so by sponsoring the creator.
There are several ways to contribute to TallStackUI, from the sponsorship program, as mentioned above, to share the library or offering help with code by sending pull requests. Read the guide on how to prepare a development environment to submit a pull request to TallStackUI.
You can follow AJ, the creator of TallStackUI, on social media: LinkedIn and X, and also join our Discord server, which already has more than 100 people, so you'll have access to early updates and news.
