Storybook is an open-source tool used to build, test, and showcase individual components or UI elements in isolation.
The primary purpose of Storybook is to facilitate the development and documentation of UI components in a sandboxed environment. Instead of integrating components into a full application, developers can create separate stories for each component, which are essentially individual test cases or scenarios that demonstrate the component's behaviour in different states and use cases.
Some of the benefits of Storybook include:
Storybook allows developers to work on a single UI component in isolation, without the need to navigate through the whole application. This isolation helps in quicker development, debugging, and testing of components.
Storybook provides a way to visually test components, making it simpler to catch UI-related bugs and regressions during development.
Documentation, usage examples, and interactive demos can be added for each component, which helps in onboarding new team members and maintaining a comprehensive living style guide.
