Fluent UI/Fluent UI React North Star

AT 41 Reputation points


As I understand the React-North Star is for Teams apps? What is the difference between these two? Can we use both in the same project? As the North Star one doesn't seem as large, and the docs don't seem as clear?

I'm creating a Teams app in React.js, could I just use Fluent UI? Or is North Star recommended?

    You should use fluent UI React-northstar if you want to develop apps for Microsoft Teams, else you can use the normal fluent UI for web apps.

    Fluent React-northstar is Microsoft's adaptation of Fluent UI, but with the Microsoft Teams styling. With React-northstar components, your Teams app can offer accessible, high-quality experiences that align with Microsoft Teams.
