Storybook is used by companies like Airbnb, Lyft, IBMShopify, and thousands of other companies to document and develop components in isolation.

In this article, we’ll be discussing what exactly Storybook is, and why you should be using it in your next project.

What is Storybook?

Storybook is a tool for building and documenting UI components. This isn’t a React exclusive tool, they also support React NativeAngularVue, and many other frameworks.

With Storybook, you can develop entire UI’s without ever having to spin up a development project, so you can focus on developing one thing at a time.

Storybook helps you document built components and easily visually test them to prevent bugs before integrating them with the rest of your applica.

For React applications, Storybook runs a separate development server and gives a catalog view of components you specify. Assuming your components receive props as an input, Storybook allows you to pass in separate props while instantiating it, and with addons, try out different values while viewing your component!
