We’re porting LivingStyleGuide into JavaScript

Yes, you read right. We’re porting LSG into JavaScript!

But why?

  • Better integrations
    We’ve got front-end tools like Webpack and Gulp in mind.

  • Focus on extendability
    JavaScript is widespread and will make LSG more accessible and extendable, and the API can be designed close to the DOM.

  • Issue reduction We want to reduce issues on some projects that might be caused by Ruby dependency.

What are the advantages?

  • Speed
    Who doesn’t like that?

  • Reconsideration
    A complete rewrite affords the opportunity to rethink design decisions

How will it be done?

  1. Build the underlying technology for parsing and rendering

  2. Build the LivingStyleGuide-specific features

  3. Build an improved documentation website

LSG needs you!

We need all the help we can get to start things moving on this! If you’re interested in helping out, visit our repository, or feel free to reach out to us on Twitter.
