    NSW Design System

    npm version This project is using for visual regression testing.

    NSW Design system is a collection of reusable UI components used on the NSW government websites.

    See live examples of NSW Digital Design system components and guidance on how to use them on you website at NSW Design System.

    Using the design system

    How you use the NSW Design System depends on your team's capabilities. We recommend using npm but also provided in a CDN, and a downloadable starter kit which includes all the compiled assets.

    1. Installing with NPM
    2. Using JSDelivr CDN
    3. Download starter kit

    Installing with NPM

    npm is a package manager for Node-based projects. We recommend npm packages because it makes it easy to update and install the design system from the command line.

    1. Install Node/npm.

    2. Generate a package.json file using the npm init command in the terminal. You will be prompted to enter several pieces of information, like the name of your application, version, description etc.

    3. Add nsw-design-system to your project’s package.json:

      • npm install --save nsw-design-system

    The NSW Design System is now installed as a dependancy of your project, check out how to import styles and javascript in to your project build.

    Importing styles into your project

    The NSW Design System styles need to be added to the main Sass file in your project.
    Use the below snippet to import the NSW Design System (ideally placed before any other imports or sass):

    @import 'node_modules/nsw-design-system/src/main';

    Adding the font and the icons

    In your main html document add this line of code inside the <head> tag. Make sure that it's placed before the NSW Design System styles import.

      <link href=",600&display=swap" rel="stylesheet">
      <link href="" rel="stylesheet">

    Importing javascript into your project

    Some of the NSW Design System components require javascript to provide advanced functionality. To ensure the page is ready for javascript to run, include the follow scripts tags at the end of the html document.

        <script src="path/to/main.js"></script>

    Depending on your project set up, you might wish to copy the file into your project from node_modules or add the reference to your build workflow.

    Using JSDelivr CDN

    The bundled css and js files are also hosted in JSDelivr.

    You can add the files to your main html document

        <link rel="stylesheet" href="">
        <script src=""></script>

    Download starter kit

    You can download the compiled design system assets (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) in the HTMLStarterkit zip file from the latest release.
