The TELUS Design System (TDS) is a set of living guidelines that communicates our brand promise through our digital experiences. It's a holistic platform that integrates documentation, guidelines and design management that serves as single source for digital design guidelines, code patterns and UI elements.
The TDS Community is a collaborative platform where TELUS designers and developers can rapidly discover, share, and consume their modules as part of the TELUS Design System. This includes React components, the component library for designers, and their documentation.
TDS Community is similar to TDS Core since community components have the same technical and branding foundations as core components, however the underlying governance model and maintenance workflow differs. Here is a high level summary:
|Feature||TDS Core||TDS Community|
|Rate of change||Low||High|
|Review board||TDS Core Team||Digital Platform Ambassadors|
The Digital Platform Ambassadors are a team of representatives from every tribe at TELUS digital. They help grow the digital platform and will actively review contributions for the TDS Community to ensure quality standards are met.
Consuming TDS Community Sketch assets or React components is very similar to TDS Core. You can follow our getting started guide to learn more.
During the initial launch of TDS Community, component designs will be audited by internal TELUS design leads and will be delegated to their respective tribe developers for contribution. These notes will be updated once an appropriate place for supplementary Sketch assets are decided.
Unlike TDS Core, npm modules from TDS Community are prefixed
@tds/community-*. To set up your project
