A design system is a collection of documentation on principles and best practices, that helps guide a team to build digital products. They are often embodied in UI libraries and pattern libraries, but can extend to include guides on other areas such as 'Voice and Tone'.
- Components: Contains coded patterns and examples.
- Voice & Tone: Provides guidance on how language should be used.
- Designers Kit: Includes a Sketch/Photoshop/Figma/etc. file for designers.
- Source code: Publically viewable source code

Although 'design systems', 'ui libraries', and 'pattern libraries' are different things, they are often used interchangeably. This list contains all three.
