Forma 36 - The Contentful Design System

Contentful All Contributors lerna

Forma 36 is an open-source design system by Contentful created with the intent to reduce the overhead of creating UI by providing tools and guidance for digital teams building and extending Contentful products

Table of contents

Packages

Forma 36 is a monorepo structured into different packages and maintained using Lerna. The packages available are:

  • forma-36-website This package includes the design system documentation which offers guidelines, best practices and examples.

  • forma-36-react-components A React component library built with Storybook.

  • forma-36-fcss CSS utility classes for spacing, typography, colors and transitions.

  • forma-36-tokens This package includes all the visual tokens (e.g. colors, margins, font sizes, etc) that used in the react library

Creating new packages

We use use Plop to create scripts that help you to scaffold new packages. In the root of the repo, you can run yarn generate. Then follow the steps in the CLI. Plop will generate the relevant files and add the relevant imports and exports to the main src/index.ts file required to make the component available when publishing the library.

Development

For local development, in the root of the repo run yarn to install all dependencies and then yarn build to build all packages. Now follow the instructions of the specific package you’re working on. You will find each package’s instructions in their README files, check the Packages section for a list of all packages.

In case you are having problems to install the dependencies, try using NVM to get the same node version we use by running nvm use in the root of the repo

Storybook for forma-36-react-components

We use storybook with our react component library to develop components. You can start it from the root of the repo, just run yarn storybook

Commits & releases

Use yarn commit. This uses the Commitzen CLI to create a conventional commit message based on your changes. CI is setup to release all new commits on the master branch.

Testing with your own project locally

You can test changes to a package of this monorepo in your own project locally by taking the following steps:

  1. Run yarn build in the desired package's directory to ensure your latest changes have been built
  2. Run yarn link in the desired package's directory
  3. Change to your local project's directory and run yarn link NAME_OF_PACKAGE to link to the local version of the package (e.g. yarn link @contentful/forma-36-react-components)
