Polaris viz

Polaris Viz is Shopify's data visualization system. It's what powers many of our data heavy experiences, including ShopifyQL Notebooks.

It is composed of two consumer-facing libraries:

  • polaris-viz version badge size badge

a collection of React components built for web

  • polaris-viz-native version badge size badge

    a collection of React Native components optimized for mobile experiences

Both libraries use the same Data Structure, Utility functions, Themes and SubComponents. All things shared between @shopify/polaris-viz and @shopify/polaris-viz-native are documented in the Storybook's Shared folder

Our libraries are structured to favor charts that prioritize accessibility and motion design. The goal is to help users create clear and meaningful analytics experiences.

We want to do the heavy lifting of developing charts, so our partners can focus on telling amazing data stories and not re-inventing the wheel.

🤝 Contributing
