Style Guides & Pattern Libraries are great tools for documenting the relationships between code and design, but beautiful docs are only half the battle. We don’t all have dedicated teams and budgets to build a centralized system. How can we build patterns into our code, using templates and pre-processors to iterate and automate living design systems in an agile and integrated process?

  • Using templates and pre-processors for pattern-making in CSS and HTML.
  • Designing and integrating toolkits that force pattern-making.
  • Examples of what weve done, where weve failed, and where were headed.
