For react based applications
Install the gsy component library package from npm
npm install -s gsy-component-library
Now you should have in your node modules a folder from gsy-component-library which contains a build folder. In this build folder are all ready to use pre-compiled components. If you want to use one of them in a react render function just import the component you want to use:
import Button from 'gsy-component-library/build/'
Every component comes with its own, already included, css. Check out the storybook demo of the component to see prop and theming options and how to set them.
For using a theme you have to wrap the components in the themeprovider component and set the name of the theme.
This repository is published under GLGPL-3.0, you can fork it and create Pull Requests to participate in the development of this library. Feel free to check out existing issues or create new issues if you discover a bug or miss some functionality.
Use angular commit message format to commit. This allows the automatic versioning to pick the right versionnumber.
How to develop for this repository
Clone repository & install dependencies
git clone https://github.com/gridsingularity/component-library.gitcd component-librarynpm install
Start the storybook demo
npm run storybook
The demo will reload if you make edits. You will see the build errors and lint warnings in the console
Create new component
Create a new folder in /lib/components/MyComponent and a MyComponent.js and MyComponent.scss file
There you write your react component and the styling.
Write CSS for the component
These components are themeable with scss. In the file
/lib/styles/themes.scss you can enter the variables for a new theme or see the variables of the other themes.
When writing scss for your component you should use these variables so the component is themeable.
Publish new version
Versioning is handled via the package semantic-release
A new version gets published after successfully merging a pull request to master. It s important to use correct commit-message syntax.
Deploy to heroku
on your working branch run
npm run build-storybook
this will create the static files inside .out folder. Commit and push your changes to your branch. Otherwise git will respond with 'No new revisions were found'.
For the deployment to heroku it needs to be merged into the deploy branch. This branch is a subtree of the master branch. Therefore you have to subtree split the .out folder into a new branch with the updated version name.
git subtree split --prefix=.out -b version-123
You now should have a new branch which contains the contents of .out inside its main folder.
Then switch to deploy branch. The deploy branch contains the files of the .out folder plus a gitignore file and a different package.json to run it as a static-page.
Now all you have to do is merge your newly created version branch.
git merge version-123 --allow-unrelated-histories
you can check if your changes applied when running
npm run start
When you pushed the deploy branch the heroku deploy pipeline will automatically deploy this version.
