    SVG Adapter

    As of v2.18.0, the svg set is opt-in. This was done to reduce the compiled bundle size. To load the svg icons, add the appropriate adapter to your app.

    It is recommended that the adapter be loaded somewhere within your main entry point (e.g. src/index.js).

    // src/index.js
    // For a lighter-weight svg set for embeddables
    import '@helpscout/hsds-react/adapters/embed'
    // For the complete svg set
    import '@helpscout/hsds-react/adapters/app'

    Note: This loads all the svg images, including Icon and Illo.


    To run Jest in watch mode, run:

    npm run dev

    To execute all the tests (with Coverage reporting), run:

    npm run test


    Merging a PR

    To merge a PR when the release is completed, please do a Squash and merge from the PR page. It will keep the history clean in the main branch

    We tend to do a release with only one PR at the time, if possible

    Releasing on NPM

    You can learn more about releasing main or releasing a beta build

    To publish and release a new version of HSDS, run the following command:

    npm run release

    You'll be presented with a CLI prompt with options. Pick the one you want, and that's it! The script will take care of the rest (from testing to publishing).

    Deploying Storybook

    To deploy the Storybook, run the following command:

    npm run deploy



    On Nov 8, 2018, we rebranded Blue to HSDS: React 🎉.

    The original Blue library will still exist on npm, and is still installable via:

    npm install @helpscout/blue --save

    However, continued development of this component library will continue under HSDS: React, which is installable via:

    npm install @helpscout/hsds-react --save

    A big thanks to all the folks involved in Blue! Blue will always be your boy 💙 .
