Hi @justinbmeyer ,
I had one idea of the tool that might improve development experience.
This is about how to create components library and in general way to have components that you can share between projects in case you need to have design system / UI kit.
I’ll explain based on what I think might be useful.
We have multiple projects that works on CanJS and quite frequently we need to create components like: drop-down / select, popup, button, date-picker etc. So some UI components that are building blocks of application. After this feature-teams can use them in their functionality. I think this is something called “UI Kit” in general.
I needed a way to build this kind of components independently from applications (to avoid any side effects) and ideally with something that might represent these components as library.
I know that DoneJS has plugin generator, that might help with this, so you can use demo pages to see components independently. But this is heavily dependent on DoneJS tools.
So I was thinking to adopt Storybook for CanJS. I think originally it was supporting React only, but it supports more frameworks right now.
At the very beginning I was thinking that this is not very hard task and I’ll be able to make this possible by my own, but after some conversation in Storybook community they said that its better to work with them to accomplish this.
Since this requires someone-else effort and this is affects more than I expected in the very beginning, I would like to know you opinion on how useful such tool will be for CanJS or you have different vision regarding this.
Packing such components without DoneJS is also an issue, but its a bit different one.
