The Power Apps component library

The Power Apps component library is a collection of user interface components that adhere to the Material Design guidelines, an open source design system developed by Google. It provides developers with a comprehensive set of tools and resources to create modern, intuitive user interfaces for their apps. The components are built using React and use modularized styling so they can easily be customized and integrated into any app. The library includes more than 50 UI elements such as buttons, forms, navigation bars and text fields that have been optimized for mobile devices. Additionally, it offers pre-built themes and color palettes which make it easy to quickly build beautiful user experiences.
