Components and utilities used to build internal documentation sites and inner loops for various Fluent UI React (formerly Office UI Fabric React) packages.

This package is in maintenance mode while we work on a replacement. It should only be used in new projects if you must have a published documentation site that looks like the official Fluent UI React docs. If all you need is an inner loop for component development, please use Storybook instead. Storybook is a well-supported, well-documented platform for component development and documentation.

Live editor support

To set up the live code editor in the demo app for a package other than the @fluentui/react package itself:

  1. Follow the setup steps from the @uifabric/monaco-editor readme (the helpers mentioned are also re-exported from @uifabric/tsx-editor for convenience).

  2. Set up a .d.ts rollup file for your package using API Extractor.

  3. Add a dependency on raw-loader to the package containing your demo app.

  4. Define the custom list of supported packages. For demonstration purposes, we'll assume:

    • You're building off the default set of supported packages
    • The package you're demoing is my-package
    • my-package re-exports another package called my-package-utilities (it's not required that your package export anything else, but this is included to demonstrate setting it up)
    • Each package's .d.ts rollup lives under <package-folder>/dist/<unscoped-package-name>.d.ts
import { IPackageGroup } from '@uifabric/tsx-editor';
import { defaultSupportedPackages } from '@uifabric/tsx-editor/lib/utilities/defaultSupportedPackages';

export const editorSupportedPackages: IPackageGroup[] = [
    // Package's exports will be made available under this global name at runtime
    globalName: 'MyPackage',
    // Loader for the package's contents
    loadGlobal: () => import('my-package'),
    // Alternatively, for non-delayed loading:
    //   loadGlobal: () => require('my-package'),
    // Or at the top of the file, `import * as MyPackage from 'my-package'`, then:
    //   loadGlobal: () => Promise.resolve(MyPackage)
    packages: [
        packageName: 'my-package',
        loadTypes: () => {
          // Use import() so the types can potentially be split into a separate chunk and delay loaded.
          // If you don't care about that, you could use require() instead.
          // @ts-ignore: import is handled by webpack
          return import('!raw-loader!my-package/dist/my-package.d.ts');
        // my-package re-exports my-package-utilities from its root, so it goes under the same global
        packageName: 'my-package-utilities',
        loadTypes: () => {
          // @ts-ignore: import is handled by webpack
          return import('!raw-loader!my-package-utilities/dist/my-package-utilities.d.ts');
  1. To apply to a single ExampleCard:
import { editorSupportedPackages } from '<file path>';
import { MyExample } from './MyExample.Example';
const MyExampleCode = require('!raw-loader!./MyExample.Example.tsx');

<ExampleCard title="My example" code={MyExampleCode} editorSupportedPackages={editorSupportedPackages}>
  <MyExample />
  1. To apply to all ExampleCard instances in your app:
import { editorSupportedPackages } from '<file path>';
import { IExampleCardProps, IAppDefinition } from '@uifabric/example-app-base';

const exampleCardProps: IExampleCardProps = { editorSupportedPackages };

// same applies with ISiteDefinition
const appDefinition: IAppDefinition = {
  // ...
  customizations: {
    scopedSettings: {
      ExampleCard: exampleCardProps,
