Return Path Style Guide [beta]
A front-end framework to help developers, designers, and product managers create beautiful, eminently usable apps our customers love to use.
Style guides help teams work faster, be more productive, and create better experiences for the end user.
With a shared component library, developers and designers can start working on apps without the need to create interfaces from scratch; prototyping and experimenting become much easier, and new team members can get up to speed in less time. A single codebase for our UI will also cut down time spent on maintenence.
Style guides set a precedent, demonstrating how designers and developers expect interfaces to function. With potentially hundreds of people working on different projects, having to plan for modular components goes a long way to reducing duplicated code, simplify testing, and creating more sustainable products over time.
As new features are implemented, having a common reference point can save time when translating from prototypes to production, and prompts cross-disciplinary conversations between team members. Having a shared understanding of how our products are supposed to work will mean our customers end up using solid, understandable products.
