Why Storybook + Zeplin

Storybook is an open-source repository to build, test, and document components and pages in isolation. Zeplin has both a Storybook integration and an addon. Access code and documentation while inspecting components in Zeplin with the integration. See Zeplin designs in Storybook using the addon.

Integration - Storybook #1

Connect design components to code

Paste your Storybook instance URL to a Zeplin project or styleguide to get rolling. Then link components one by one; Zeplin will suggest design components to match what's found in Storybook.

Highlight built components in designs

Toggle to highlight Storybook components that have already been built on each screen. Skip the rework and see supporting information including code snippets, link status, and link to directly edit in Storybook.
