Differences Using the Default HTML Calendar vs. a Commercial React Calendar

Sure, you could just use the default, un-stylable HTML calendar, but why—when you could have a smoother UX, a set of beautiful pre-made themes, globalization and more, without sacrificing accessibility or ease of development.

In this video, we’ll compare the React Calendar component available in the KendoReact UI library and the default HTML calendar, looking at the following criteria:

  • Design consistency across browsers
  • Customizability (whoa, that’s a big word!) of styling and features
  • Theming options
  • Accessibility
  • Ease of development
