    typography-desktop

    What is this?

    typography-desktop is a package that exports font grouping CSS classes, such as .xlarge-bold, for consumer web projects to consume.

    These classes are generated dynamically based on the latest version of otkit-typography-desktop design token.

    Why are you doing this?

    The way different consumer web teams apply typography styling to their front end components is very fragmented. We have lots of duplications, overrides and human errors.

    We try to solve this problem by enforcing consistency via encapsulating the entire design decision inside CSS classes.

    I choose CSS class as the transport mechanism because of its simplicity, familiarity and flexibility.

    How is this package set up?

    Let's briefly explain the decision flow when it comes to typography. Let's use .xlarge-bold as example.

    1. Designers decided xlarge-bold should be one of the desktop web typography groupings inside their design system.
    2. Design tokens deconstructs xlarge-bold into atomic elements, such as xlarge-bold-font-size, xlarge-bold-font-weight and xlarge-bold-line-height, and stores them inside otkit-typography-desktop token.
    3. We import these values from design tokens, reconstructing the composited .xlarge-bold, which serves as a 1:1 model / engineering translation of the design decision.
    4. You, as a developer of a consumer web project, can then use it.

    How do I use it / how does it help me?

    Let's expand bullet point number 4 from above.

    TL;DR: No more repeating the same CSS declarations - font sizes, font weights, line heights, even class compositions - over and over again!

    To use it, simply install:

    npm i --save-dev @ot-react-ui/typography-desktop

    Then depends on your choice of CSS technologies, there are many ways to consume this package:

    CSS modules

    .some-component-class {
      composes: xlarge-bold from '@ot-react-ui/typography-desktop';
    }

    Sass / Scss

    @import '@ot-react-ui/typography-desktop';
    .some-component-class {
      @extend: .xlarge-bold; // or you can just use the class names directly
    }

    Vanilla CSS

    If your project uses vanilla CSS you can simply import it in your bundle then use the class names directly.
