Collaborating through a _shared_ component library

Matt Travi @mtravi

A style guide or component-library has the potential to be huge help in keeping your engineering teams up to date on the latest intended design details. Over time however, it ultimately severely diverges from the production implementation and ends up resulting in finger-pointing between the design and engineering organizations.

Sharing the implementation of the front-end components between the production application and the component-library demo and prototype(s) prevents the inevitable divergence and keeps all parties aware of the impacts of desired changes. This talk will highlight component-library tools and collaboration techniques, with an emphasis on leveraging npm to share the component implementation.
