Installation: Evergreen is made up of multiple components and tools, which you can import one by one. It can be installed with NPM or Yarn using the following command.

// or
yarn add evergreen-ui

Once Evergreen is installed as a dependency in your project, you can import it as:

import { Button } from 'evergreen-ui'

import { Button } from 'evergreen-ui'

function App() {
    return (
         <Button marginLeft={10} marginRight={10}>Default</Button>
        <Button marginRight={10} appearance="primary">
        <Button marginRight={10} appearance="minimal">

 export default App

npm start




  • Theming: Evergreen supports a robust theming layer out of the box. Evergreen ships with an all new, extensible theming architecture that lets users customize the look of the page and feel of the components in Evergreen as you want. You can target arbitrary styles and states of each component to achieve maximum flexibility and alignment with your brand. This page goes over some options and background of the theming architecture, and how you can leverage it in your apps.
  • Server Side Rendering (SSR):  Evergreen provides server-side rendering and automatic hydration. For the sake of easiness server-side rendering and hydration, Evergreen exposes a extractStyles() function that will do SSR for both at once.
  • SSR with Gatsby: It is easily compatible with gatsby.
