React Styleguidist

React Styleguidist is a component development tools that would improves the workflow and code reuse in React project.

  • component description using comment here
  • supported props using prop-types here.
  • use cases with markdown here.
  • output from React Styleguidist can be seen here.

Benefits of Using Component Development Tools

  1. allows you to develop component in isolation. This allows you to ignore the business rules and focus on developing a reusable UI component.
  2. encourage component reuse as it is easier to explore and try the components that have been developed.
  3. reduce need of manual documentation. As documentation are generated with comment and code itself, you do not need to worry about outdated documentation.
  4. ease communications with designers and business stackholders. It is a great tools when all your UI components is available in single page that you can compare and highlight variation and inconsistency.
