The most advanced tool for documenting, testing and managing Front-end Components achieving productive team work.
SourceJS powered workflow allows developers to code new components directly in the documentation. Combining web components development with documentation and team communication processes, makes SourceJS a powerful tool for Front-end developers and designers.
🎥 Check out short video overview:
Our main goal is to provide flexible, modular environment for managing reusable Front-end components library. We don't focus on specific technologies, allowing to seamlessly integrate SourceJS workflow with your existing codebase.
SourceJS component management engine was originally developed in OK.ru front-end development team and is recommended for big and middle sized projects. Especially for fast growing web portals, outsource teams with similar project and companies with multiple services.

To clear some confusion around Living Style Guide Platforms comparison, let us define few main differences.
SourceJS is a dynamic Node.js application, and does not build static website as Pattern Lab, KSS, StyleDocco are doing. Dynamic environment allows to connect unlimited number of plugins and middlewares for compiling docs, styles, text right on the flight.
Engine is based on gathering special documentation templates (
readme.md and others), where you leave your HTML examples, template includes and description. All Specs are located in
sourcejs/user/specs folder, and could contain any catalogue structure, with focus on component folders.
But you can use official SourceJS plugin based on DSS, CSS Documentation parser - github.com/sourcejs/sourcejs-contrib-dss.
Many teams are already using SourceJS for building and managing Front-end components libraries for themselves and their clients. To join the community, you just need to follow few simple rules - check our docs about Maintaining and Contribution.

SourceJS follows semantic versioning and we do our best to keep as less breaking changes as possible.
Preparing to 1.0 release, we plan to keep migration path very smooth and painless. So if you will keep in sync with minor releases and API deprecation announcements, you won't face any problems setting up major release updates.
SourceJS client-side part is supported in all latest major browsers and IE8+ in Clarify for testing components.
