openv0 is an open source generative UI component framework that allows developers to rapidly prototype and iterate on React, Next.js, and Svelte UI components. It leverages existing open source libraries like NextUI, Flowbite, and Shadcn to build a library of assets for the generative pipeline. openv0’s highly modular plugin-based architecture makes it easy to integrate new frameworks, libraries, and plugins. The latest updates have streamlined framework and library integration.
How it works:
openv0 accelerates UI development by automating repetitive tasks like styling, layout, and accessibility compliance. Developers can describe the component they want to build using natural language prompts. openv0’s AI pipeline will generate the component code, preview it live, and allow iterative refinement. This rapid generative loop frees up developers to focus on building core application logic and custom interactions. The modular architecture also enables developers to easily extend openv0’s capabilities by creating custom plugins.
How to use it:
