We need to develop an Admin Page within a WordPress Plugin.

We'd like to use React as JS-Framework, because many other Plugins do the same and it works for them. However, what about the CSS? Is using the WordPress CSS really the way to go?

It seems to be hard to use a proper CSS Framework inside of the WP Admin because of collisions. Furthermore, the Gutenberg Editor for example has a completely different interface (based on React also). Is it possible to do a similar thing?

I'd just like to know the "way to go" in terms of CSS (and maybe JS) in the WordPress Admin Pages.

Thank you.

  • As it stands, this question is a little broad and opinion-based to fit into our site's Q&A format - you might take a minute to review the "How to Ask" page in our help center. That said, I've used various CSS frameworks just fine in the dashboard. Some might conflict, but I don't recall them off the top of my head. There really isn't a widely agreed upon "way to go." Most anything is possible with a little elbow grease, but there's not really enough information about your project or it's needs and constraints in order for us to really provide useful feedback.
