Vue Design System

Vue Design System is an open source tool for building UI Design Systems with Vue.js. It provides you and your team a set of organized tools, patterns & practices that work as the foundation for your application development.

The tool is built on top of Vue.js, Vue Styleguidist, Webpack, and Theo and is aimed for designers and front-end developers who have at least basic knowledge of component based workflows + HTML, SCSS & JavaScript.

Made by @viljamis and other contributors. See also the official website of Vue Design System and read my article on the processes and workflow I use to get started with a new design system project.

Features

  • A set of interconnected patterns & practices for you and your team.
  • A well thought-out terminology, naming conventions, and hierarchy.
  • Get an automated overview of how your design system progresses over time.
  • Global design tokens in YAML format that you can use inside any component.
  • Automatic generation of living, user editable documentation.
  • Easily export and use your Design System as an NPM dependency in another Vue.js or Nuxt.js project.
  • Create a token, an element, or a pattern, and it’s immediately available across all components.
  • Pre-configured Prettier setup for auto-formatting code on both save and before commit.
  • Live Reloading, Autoprefixing, SCSS, and helper functions + simple and sane defaults for SVG and Webfont usage out-of-the-box.
  • Documentation and the app logic are separated, so you can have public docs while the app itself stays private.
  • And more…
