1.0.8 • Public • Published

This package contains the CSS and HTML code behind the portal. It's split into two parts

  • Components: These are specific distinct components that make up each page (e.g. buttons, layout primatives, etc).
  • Static demo pages: These are full demo pages that should duplicate Figma designs. So these take individual components and combine them into a "real life" page for demonstration and review purposes.

When working on the code in this package, generally your workflow is to create the components first, and then copy those components into a demo page.


You need to install NodeJS/npm on your computer first. Then:

# Install yarn if you dont have it yet
npm -g install yarn

# Checkout this repos and switch to it
git clone git@github.com:deskpro/portal-components.git

# Switch to the style package
cd portal-components/packages/style

# Install dependencies
yarn install

When you're ready to start working, start the development server:

yarn run dev

This will open http://localhost:3000/portal-components/style/ in your primary browser, ready to go.

Working with components

Component CSS is defined in packages/style/src, and then the documentation ("living style guide") is defined in packages/style/docs.

For example:

Working with demos

The demo pages are full static pages. The source for the demos is at packages/style/website/static/demos. These are completely static HTML pages (there will be a lot of copy+paste between them!).

For example:

Browser Requirements

  • Google Chrome: latest two versions
  • Mozilla Firefox: latest two versions
  • Apple Safari: latest two versions
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer: latest version only. The pages need to generally work, however it is acceptable to have minor differences, use polyfills, etc. For example, we might decide that a certain effect or animation doesn't work in IE because the work involved to get it working would not be worth it.
  • Microsoft Edge: latest two versions

Naming Standards / Coding Standards

  • We adhere loosely to the BEM naming convention.
  • All CSS classnames must begin with the namespace dp-po-.
    • This is necessary because our customers tend to modify our HTML templates and CSS, and we need to ensure that any custom code they add does not conflict with ours. For example, it's quite common for a customer to copy+paste a "header" from their website.
  • No global CSS (for the same reason as above).
  • Prefer classes over element selectors. For example, it's better to have .dp-po-foo .dp-po-myheading than .dp-po-foo > h3.
  • Prefer variables over hard-coded values for things like colours, fonts, etc. Ultimately our goal is to create a set of variables that you can change in one place, which would allow easy theming.
