Is Forge Custom UI only way to make decent looking UI?

Hi folks,

I am trying to build ProjectSettingsPage using UI Kit, and it looks just bad. There is not much customization I can do, it seems.

Apart from just bad looking, I need basic text formatting in TextField. Looks like this is not possible at all.

So, has anyone used Forge UI Kit in production? Is Custom UI the only option to make decent looking UI?

From my experience, Forge UI is good for where you have limited integration space (such as the custom field). For everything else you’ll want to use Custom UI.


We’re working on some big enhancements to UI Kit to add layout and styling as well as client-side rendering but we’re still a couple of months away from an EAP.

For now, the best option for full page extension points like ProjectSettingsPage is generally Custom UI.
