Getting Started with Storybook

Here is a quick tutorial on getting started with Storybook:

  1. Install Storybook: To get started with Storybook, you will need to install it globally on your machine. You can do this by running the following command in your terminal:javaCopy codenpm install -g @storybook/cli
  2. Create a new Storybook project: Once you have installed the Storybook CLI, you can create a new project by running the following command:csharpCopy codesb init This will create a new Storybook project in your current directory.
  3. Define your first UI component: To create your first UI component, create a new folder called “Button” in the “src” directory of your Storybook project. Inside this folder, create a new file called “Button.js” and add the following code:javascriptCopy codeimport React from 'react'; function Button(props) { return ( <button className={props.className}> {props.children} </button> ); } export default Button;
  4. Define a story for your component: To define a story for your new Button component, create a new file called “Button.stories.js” in the “src” directory and add the following code:javascriptCopy codeimport React from 'react'; import Button from './Button'; export default { title: 'Button', component: Button, }; export const Primary = () => <Button className="btn-primary">Primary</Button>; export const Secondary = () => <Button className="btn-secondary">Secondary</Button>;
  5. Run Storybook: To run your new Storybook project, use the following command in your terminal:Copy codenpm run storybook This will start the Storybook server and open it in your default web browser.
  6. View your new component: Once Storybook is running, you can view your new Button component by selecting the “Button” story from the left-hand sidebar. This will show you a preview of the component and allow you to interact with it in various ways.

By following these steps, you should now have a basic understanding of how to use Storybook to create and test UI components for your web or mobile application. From here, you can continue to build and refine your components, add new stories, and explore the many features and capabilities of this powerful tool.
