Design System Cookbooks 📚

Introduction

Contributors Welcome License: MIT

Welcome to Design System Cookbooks, an open-source database of public design systems. This project caters to designers, product managers, and engineers, providing a platform to find and share valuable design resources.

Design System Cookbooks is more than a repository—it's a community-driven guidebook. By pooling together diverse design systems, we aim to create a central, accessible hub where professionals can learn, get inspired, and improve their own design practices.

How to use

Browse and compare design systems through our website.

Contribute by adding new systems or updating existing entries.

Contribution

Your contributions are what makes Design System Cookbooks a valuable resource. Whether you're adding a new system, or updating an existing one, your input is invaluable.

There are two ways to contribute:

  1. If you know how to code and want to add a design system, follow the steps below and open a PR.
  2. If you don't know how to code, open an issue with the design system you want to add.

For the folks that are adding a design system through a Pull Request, follow the steps below:

  1. Clone the repository
  2. Run yarn install to install dependencies
  3. Open the project with your favourite IDE and go to the src/data.ts file. There you will find an array of objects with the design systems.
  4. Create a design system entry and add it to the final array at the end of the file. Everything is type-safe, and you will have auto-complete on the fields that you can add.

auto complete example

  1. If you want to validate that everything is set correctly, run yarn dev to visit a simple website locally, at http://localhost:5173/. You will see your design system added to the list.
  2. Once you are happy with your changes, open a PR. Be sure to add yourself in the contributors list 🫡

Why Design System Cookbooks?

This project was born from a desire to centralize and democratize design system knowledge, making it accessible to all. Our goal is to provide a platform for designers, product managers, and engineers to share their recipes (thus the cookbooks in the name) and learn from others.

Also, as Adele was acquired alongside UXPin in 2020, the velocity in which they added new design systems dropped dramatically, while the space is growing faster than ever 📈

Acknowledgements

  1. Special thanks to the UXPin team, and the contributors of the Adele project, which inspired this endeavor. Their commitment to the design community paved the way for projects like ours.
  2. Clearbit for the awesome API that we use to fetch the logos of the design systems.
