Note: This project is no longer maintained. We suggest using Storybook as your component explorer. The creators of this project now build Chromatic QA an automated visual testing tool for UI components and component libraries.

Write Component Specs

ComponentName = React.createClass({
  // code
});

if (Chromatic) {
  Chromatic.add(ComponentName, {
    specs: [
      new Chromatic.Spec('specName1', {
        props: {
          // props used by your component
        }
      }),
      new Chromatic.Spec('specName2', {
        props: {
          // props used by your component
        }
