Support for Pattern Lab Node

Pattern Lab Node wouldn't be what it is today without the support of the community. It will always be free and open source. Continued development is made possible in part from the support of these wonderful project supporters. If you want to learn more about supporting the project, visit the Pattern Lab Node Patreon page.

💯 Thanks for support from the following:


Pattern Lab Node Core is designed to be consumed, and by default is included as a dependency within two example Node Editions.

Pattern Lab Ecosystem

Core, and Editions, are part of the Pattern Lab Ecosystem. With this architecture, we encourage people to write and maintain their own editions.


const config = require('./patternlab-config.json');
const patternlab = require('patternlab-node')(config);, boolCleanOutputDir);

Development Installation / Workflow

If you are interested in contributing to Pattern Lab, it's suggested to install an Edition of your choice and then run a local copy of this repository via npm link.

mkdir /patternlab-node
cd /patternlab-node
git clone
npm install
npm link
cd location/of/edition
npm link patternlab-node

The above is a bit verbose, but illustrates:

  1. how to clone this repository to an arbitrary location
  2. install all dependencies (run npm install --dev if your NODE_ENV is production for some reason)
  3. setup the npm link to your local copy
  4. use the local copy of patternlab-node in your edition

Make sure to change to whichever branch you intend to hack on or test within your cloned repository, such as dev or bugfix/fixes-broken-unittest
