Elastic UI Framework
The Elastic UI Framework is a collection of React UI components for quickly building user interfaces at Elastic.
Check out our full documentation site which contains many examples of components in the EUI framework aesthetic, and how to use them in your products. We also have a FAQ that covers common usage questions. For other general questions regarding EUI, check out the Discussions tab.
The rest of this doc will detail how to run and contribute to the EUI documentation site locally.

The primary goal of this library is to provide reusable UI components that can be used throughout Elastic's web products. As React components, they remove CSS from the process of building UIs. As a single source of truth, the framework allows our designers to make changes to our aesthetic directly in the code. And unit test coverage for the UI components allows us to deliver a stable "API for user interfaces".
