Design System Publisher is a tool for creating a documentation website for your own Vaadin-based design system, meaning the components, theme features, UI patterns and guidelines that your application UIs are composed of.
Having your own documentation website makes it easier for your developers and designers to keep track of the features available in your UI platform, what they look like, and how they can be used.
Design System Publisher is included in Prime and Enterprise subscriptions.
The site’s content format is AsciiDoc, a lightweight markup language similar to MarkDown. The system supports embedding live component samples, written in Java and/or TypeScript, directly into the pages. The system can automatically provide code snippets for the samples for copy-pasting into code.
