Storybook Addon Badges

Using @geometricpanda/storybook-addon-badges you're able to add badges to your Storybook app.

Installation

NPM:

npm install @geometricpanda/storybook-addon-badges --save

Yarn:

yarn add @geometricpanda/storybook-addon-badges

Configuration

In your .storybook/main.js you'll need to load @geometricpanda/storybook-addon-badges into Storybook:

// .storybook/main.js
module.exports = {
  stories: [],
  addons: [
    '@geometricpanda/storybook-addon-badges'
  ],
};

Optionally, you can define custom badge styles in .storybook/preview.js.

// .storybook/preview.js
import {addParameters} from '@storybook/react';

addParameters({
  badgesConfig: {
    beta: {
      contrast: '#FFF',
      color: '#018786',
      title: 'Beta'
    },
    deprecated: {
      contrast: '#FFF',
      color: '#6200EE',
      title: 'Deprecated'
    }
  }
});

The key for each badge will be what's used throughout storybook to invoke that badge.

I tend to define each key as an enum when using TypeScript, or even an Object in plain JavaScript to avoid using magic strings.

Don't worry if you haven't defined a badge which you use later, any badges which aren't recognised fall back to the default preconfigured grey.

Tip: If you prefer, instead of using the addParameters function, you can also export const parameters containing a full parameters object.

// .storybook/constants.js
export enum BADGES {
  STATUS = 'status'
}

// .storybook/preview.js
import {addParameters} from '@storybook/react';

addParameters({
  badgesConfig: {
    [BADGES.STATUS] : {
      contrast: '#FFF',
      color: '#018786',
      title: 'Status'
    },
  }
});

Preconfigured badges

You can import a collection of preconfigured badges using the following import:

import { BADGE } from '@geometricpanda/storybook-addon-badges';

You can then use these badges by passing in the following enum values:

  • BADGE.DEFAULT
  • BADGE.BETA
  • BADGE.STABLE
  • BADGE.DEPRECATED
  • BADGE.EXPERIMENTAL
  • BADGE.NEEDS_REVISION
  • BADGE.OBSOLETE

Should you wish to override these styles you can do by configuring a badge with the same key:

// .storybook/preview.js
import {addParameters} from '@storybook/react';
import { BADGE } from '@geometricpanda/storybook-addon-badges';

addParameters({
  badgesConfig: {
    [BADGE.DEFAULT] : {
      contrast: '#FFF',
      color: '#018786',
      title: 'New Title'
    },
  }
});

Component Story Format (CSF)

All Stories

The following will apply the badges to all components within your Story:

import { BADGE } from '@geometricpanda/storybook-addon-badges';

export default {
  title: 'Path/To/MyComponent',
  parameters: {
    badges: [BADGE.DEPRECATED, BADGE.OBSOLETE]
  }
};

const Template = () => (<h1>Hello World</h1>);

export const FirstComponent = Template.bind({});
export const SecondComponent = Template.bind({});
export const ThirdComponent = Template.bind({});

Individual Stories

You can also selectively add badges to each Story:

import { BADGE } from '@geometricpanda/storybook-addon-badges';

export default {
  title: 'Path/To/MyComponent',
};

const Template = () => (<h1>Hello World</h1>);

export const FirstComponent = Template.bind({});
FirstComponent.parameters = {
  badges: [BADGE.DEPRECATED]
};

export const SecondComponent = Template.bind({});
SecondComponent.parameters = {
  badges: [BADGE.STABLE]
};

export const ThirdComponent = Template.bind({});
ThirdComponent.parameters = {
  badges: [BADGE.OBSOLETE]
};

Removing Badges from Stories

When applying Badges to all Stories you can selectively remove them too:

import { BADGE } from '@geometricpanda/storybook-addon-badges';

export default {
  title: 'Path/To/MyComponent',
  parameters: {
    badges: [BADGE.BETA]
  }
};

const Template = () => (<h1>Hello World</h1>);

export const FirstComponent = Template.bind({});
export const SecondComponent = Template.bind({});

export const ThirdComponent = Template.bind({});
ThirdComponent.parameters = {
  badges: [],
};

MDX

In your mdx documentation you can add badges to your stories using the <Meta> component.

import { Meta } from '@storybook/addon-docs/blocks';
import { BADGE } from '@geometricpanda/storybook-addon-badges';

<Meta title="Path/To/MyComponent" parameters={{ badges: [ BADGE.BETA ] }} />
