    Kirby Design System

    Kirby Design System is a UX Component library implementing the Kirby Design Philosophy.

    Kirby Components are built on top of Angular and can be used in Angular projects.

    The Kirby Cookbook, containing samples, status of components etc. can be accessed from

    Table of Contents


    Install through npm:

    npm i @kirbydesign/designsystem

    Include KirbyModule

    Import the KirbyModule in your AppModule :

    import { KirbyModule } from '@kirbydesign/designsystem';
        imports: [
    export class AppModule {}


    Include the Kirby global styles in your app, e.g., in src/styles.scss:

    @import '~@kirbydesign/designsystem/scss/global-styles';

    In each .scss file where you need to access the Sass utility functions from Kirby (e.g. colors or fonts) you must import the scss utilities:

    @import '~@kirbydesign/designsystem/scss/utils';

    Generic Print Styles (Optional)

    Kirby also provides a generic print stylesheet. It includes the basics. You most likely have to add local print styles specific to your app as well.

    Import it into your app, e.g., in src/styles.scss or in your local print stylesheet if you have one:

    @import '~@kirbydesign/designsystem/scss/print';


    To unit-test applications using Kirby's Components, we recommend importing one of the following modules:

    • When using jasmine: import { KirbyTestingModule } from '@kirbydesign/designsystem/testing-jasmine';
    • When using jest: import { KirbyTestingModule } from '@kirbydesign/designsystem/testing-jest';


    import { KirbyTestingModule } from '@kirbydesign/designsystem/testing-jasmine';
    describe('AppComponent', () => {
      beforeEach(async(() => {
          imports: [KirbyTestingModule],
          declarations: [AppComponent]

    For unit test performance reasons it's highly recommended to utilize these modules, since they provide a template-less implementation of the Kirby Components, but still translude content through <ng-content></ng-content> and provide @Input -decorated properties and @Output -decorated EventEmitter s, without having to reflow the DOM, execute component logic etc.


    Kirby comes bundled with a default set of icons. Make sure the .svg files used by Kirby are copied to your output folder by adding the following to build > options > assets in angular.json :

      "build": {
        "options": {
          "assets": [
              "glob": "**/*.svg",
              "input": "node_modules/@kirbydesign/designsystem/icons/svg",
              "output": "./assets/kirby/icons/svg"
              "glob": "close.svg",
              "input": "node_modules/@kirbydesign/designsystem/icons/svg",
              "output": "./svg"

    Migration Guides

    For details on migrating from earlier versions of Kirby see our Migration Guides.

    Folder Structure

    The folder structure of the repository is based on Nrwl's NX mono-repository project.

    A basic walkthrough is outlined in the structure below:

    ├── apps                    # Contains source code for applications
    |  └── cookbook             # - Cookbook application (showcase and examples)
    ├── dist                    # Contains output files when building artifacts (for distribution)
    |  ├── apps
    |  └── libs
    ├── libs                    # Contains source code for libraries
    |  └── designsystem         # - Actual implementation of library (designsystem)
    ├── scripts                 # Scripts for building artifacts
    └── tools                   # Contains various tools
       ├── generate-mocks       # - CLI utility for generating mocks for `@kirbydesign/designsystem/testing-jasmine`
       |                        #   and `@kirbydesign/designsystem/testing-jest` entry points.
       ├── sass-to-ts           # - CLI and Webpack plugin for extract global variables from SASS to TS
       ├── schematics           # - Angular schematics
       └── tslint-rules         # - Custom lintiong rules


    Below is an overview of most widely used scripts, available for this project.
    Use them in your terminal like: npm run <script> :

    Command Description
    start Starts the development server, providing a means of running (and developing on the Cookbook)
    lint Lints the entire project (both TypeScript and SCSS source code)
    lint:cookbook Lints the Cookbook application (both TypeScript and SCSS source code)
    lint:designsystem Lints the Designsystem library (both TypeScript and SCSS source code)
    dist:cookbook Builds a distribution folder of the Cookbook application
    dist:designsystem Builds a distribution folder of the Designsystem library
    transpile:tools Transpiles tools, required to produce library distribution (this is done as a post-install hook, but may have value if altering tool implementation)


    Some features of Kirby requires polyfills to ensure compability across all major browsers (e.g. the ResizeObserverService used by the automagic sizing feature of the Kirby Card component).

    To enable the polyfill, you register a polyfill loader that checks whether the polyfill is needed or the feature is already supported by the browser (and can skip requesting the polyfill).
    To use the sizing feature of Kirby Card across all major browsers, you must copy additional files from the Kirby package to your output folder.
    Add the following to build > options > assets in angular.json :

      "build": {
        "options": {
          "assets": [
              "glob": "**/*",
              "input": "./node_modules/@kirbydesign/designsystem/polyfills",
              "output": "./kirby/polyfills"

    Finally, add the following to index.html :

      <script src="kirby/polyfills/resize-observer-polyfill-loader.min.js"></script>

    Please note: If you don't want the additional http request for the polyfill loader, you can copy the contents of node_modules/@kirbydesign/designsystem/polyfills/resize-observer-polyfill-loader.js into a script tag in index.html instead

    Chart Components

    The Kirby chart components use Highcharts. Note that this is a licensed product.
