Storybook provides a sandbox to build UI components in isolation so you can develop hard-to-reach states and edge cases.
Build components in isolation
Create components without needing to stand up screens, fuss with data, or build business logic.
Mock hard to reach use cases
Render components in key states that are tricky to reproduce in an app.
Document use cases as stories
Supercharge your workflow with addons
Use addons to build UI faster, document a component library, and streamline your workflow.
“Storybook is a powerful frontend workshop environment tool that allows teams to design, build, and organize UI components (and even full screens!) without getting tripped up over business logic and plumbing.”
Author of Atomic Design

Unit test components
Reuse stories in your unit tests to confirm nuanced functionality.
Catch UI changes down to the pixel every commit
