The GOV.UK Design System launched on 22 June 2018
GOV.UK Frontend Toolkit has now been replaced by the GOV.UK Design System. The Toolkit will remain available in case you are currently using it, but is no longer maintained. The Government Digital Service will only carry out major bug fixes and security patches.
The GOV.UK Design System will be updated to ensure the things it contains meet level AA of WCAG 2.1, but GOV.UK Frontend Toolkit will not. Read more about accessibility of the GOV.UK Design System.
GOV.UK frontend toolkit npm package
To include the toolkit in your project run:
npm install --save govuk_frontend_toolkit
This will install the toolkit inside your
node_modules and will add the
package to your package.json.
Updating this package
All development of the toolkit should happen upstream and changes will then become available in this package.
When master is changed in the upstream repo Travis will trigger a build
of this repository, which will automatically build and publish the module if the
VERSION.txt is newer than the version published on NPM registry.
