Contributing to the DSO Toolkit and DSO Component Library

This repository houses two projects:

  • The toolkit in src/ and assets/
  • A component library in docs/ and components/

This project uses Semantic Versioning.


There are two language domains: English and Dutch. Anything tech-related (styling, source code, standard open source files, etc) is in English. Anything else (Fractal notes, manuals, GitHub issues and comments) is in Dutch.

How to contribute

Contributing to the DSO Toolkit is fairly straight-forward:

  1. Fork
  2. Open an issue
  3. Contribute
  4. Create a pull request

1. Fork

Fork the repository to your own - or your organisation's - namespace.

2. Open an issue

Every change is accomponied by an issue describing the change, scope, and incentive. This way contributers, maintainers and product owners can reason about the suggested changes.

Properly label the issue as a bug, improvement, new feature.

3. Contribute

  • Take note of the codestyle, we are using linters.
  • Add an entry to the
  • When changing the toolkit, try to demonstrate the change using the component library (new components or variants)
  • Run gulp test:dom. Commit new/changed reference DOM files using gulp reference:dom.

4. Create a pull request

Create a pull request to the target version branch, most likely master. A maintainer will review your changes, merge them, and close the issue.


When reviewing a pull request, make sure the items in step 3. Contribute are checked. Pay special attention to the changelog and (if needed) reference DOM files.

Building a static component library

To build a static version:

gulp build

This will generate static a static site component library (/assets, /components and /docs) AND toolkit (/src).

You can’t perform that action at this time.
