Storybook is a development environment for UI components. It allows you to browse a component library, view the different states of each component, and interactively develop and test components.

View README for:
latest next


Storybook runs outside of your app. This allows you to develop UI components in isolation, which can improve component reuse, testability, and development speed. You can build quickly without having to worry about application-specific dependencies.

Here are some featured examples that you can reference to see how Storybook works:

Storybook comes with a lot of addons for component design, documentation, testing, interactivity, and so on. Storybook's API makes it possible to configure and extend in various ways. It has even been extended to support React Native development for mobile.

Table of contents

Getting Started

First install storybook:

cd my-react-app
npx -p @storybook/cli sb init

If you'd rather set up your project manually, take a look at our Slow Start Guide.

Once it's installed, you can npm run storybook and it will run the development server on your local machine, and give you a URL to browse some sample stories.

Storybook v2.x migration note: If you're using Storybook v2.x and want to shift to 4.x version the easiest way is:

cd my-storybook-v2-app
npx -p @storybook/cli sb init

It runs a codemod to update all package names. Read all migration details in our Migration Guide

Deprecated Addons

info Annotate stories with extra component usage information
notes Annotate Storybook stories with notes

In order to continue improving your experience, we have to eventually deprecate certain addons in favor of new, better tools.

If you're using info/notes, we highly recommend you to migrate to docs instead, and here is a guide to help you.

Badges & Presentation materials

We have a badge! Link it to your live Storybook example.

Development scripts

Storybook is organized as a monorepo using Lerna. Useful scripts include:

yarn bootstrap

Installs package dependencies and links packages together - using lerna

yarn run publish

Push a release to git and npm will ask for version in interactive mode - using lerna.

yarn lint

boolean check if code conforms to linting rules - uses remark & eslint

  • yarn lint:js - will check js

  • yarn lint:md - will check markdown + code samples

  • yarn lint:js --fix - will automatically fix js

yarn test

boolean check if unit tests all pass - uses jest

  • yarn run test --core --watch - will run core tests in watch-mode
