Storybook is a development environment for React UI components. It allows you to browse a component library, view the different states of each component, and interactively develop and test components.
Storybook runs outside of your app. This allows you to develop UI components in isolation, which can improve component reuse, testability, and development speed. You can build quickly without having to worry about application-specific dependencies.
Storybook comes with a lot of addons for component design, documentation, testing, interactivity, and so on. Storybook's easy-to-use API makes it easy to configure and extend in various ways. It has even been extended to support React Native development for mobile.
First install storybook:
npm i -g getstorybook cd my-react-app getstorybook
Once it's installed, you can
npm run storybook and it will run the development server on your local machine, and give you a URL to browse some sample stories.
