Roadmap :mountain_cableway:

We have many plans and ideas for further development. See projects about what kind of features we plan to implement in the future. We create this tool for your convenience and productivity, so we are always happy to hear your ideas and wishes.

Getting Started :bookmark_tabs:

First, install the addon

npm i storybook-addon-material-ui --save-dev

Add this line to your addons.js file (create this file inside your storybook config directory if needed).

import 'storybook-addon-material-ui/register';

Now, write your stories with Material-UI Addon. By default your stories will be provided with

Light Base Theme
Dark Base Theme

import React from 'react';
import { storiesOf, addDecorator } from '@storybook/react';
import {muiTheme} from 'storybook-addon-material-ui';

// Import some examples from react-theming import CardExampleControlled from '../CardExampleControlled.jsx'; import RaisedButtonExampleSimple from '../RaisedButtonExampleSimple.jsx'; import DatePickerExampleSimple from '../DatePickerExampleSimple.jsx';

storiesOf('Material-UI', module) // Add the muiTheme decorator to provide material-ui support to your stories. // If you do not specify any arguments it starts with two default themes // You can also configure muiTheme as a global decorator. .addDecorator(muiTheme()) .add('Card Example Controlled', () => ( )) .add('Raised Button Example Simple', () => ( )) .add('Date Picker Example Simple', () => ( ));

Note : You can switch between the loaded themes. Out of the box, you have two base themes, but you can simply add your custom themes like this:

import React from 'react';
import { storiesOf, addDecorator } from '@storybook/react';

import {muiTheme} from 'storybook-addon-material-ui';

import CardExampleControlled from '../CardExampleControlled.jsx'; import RaisedButtonExampleSimple from '../RaisedButtonExampleSimple.jsx'; import DatePickerExampleSimple from '../DatePickerExampleSimple.jsx';

// Create your own theme like this. // Note: you can specify theme name in themeName field. Otherwise it will be displayed by the number. // you can specify only required fields overriding the Light Base Theme const newTheme = { themeName: 'Grey Theme', palette: { primary1Color: '#00bcd4', alternateTextColor: '#4a4a4a', canvasColor: '#616161', textColor: '#bdbdbd', secondaryTextColor: 'rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.54)', disabledColor: '#757575', accent1Color: '#607d8b', }, };

storiesOf('Material-UI', module) .addDecorator(muiTheme([newTheme])) .add('Card Example Controlled', () => ( )) .add('Raised Button Example Simple', () => ( )) .add('Date Picker Example Simple', () => ( ));
