Using Pattern Lab

Refer to the core usage guidelines


As of Pattern Lab Node 3.0.0, installation of Editions is accomplished via the command line interface.

The below assumes a new directory and project is required. This is likely what you want to do if starting from scratch. You could also run this within an existing project. The CLI will ask you for the installation location.

  1. Open a terminal window and following along below:
    mkdir new-project
    cd new-project
    npm create pattern-lab

    If you get an error stating that npx is not installed, ensure you are on npm 5.2.0 or later by running npm -v or install it globally with npm install -g npx. Learn more about npx.

  2. Follow the on-screen prompts to choose your Edition and a Starterkit should you want one.
  • If you chose edition-node, new commands in the "scripts" will be added in your package.json.
  • If you chose edition-node-gulp, a gulpfile.js will be added to your project.

Notice that @pattern-lab/cli was installed as a depdendency. Learn how to further use the cli in your own project.


Pattern Lab Ecosystem

Core, and Editions, are part of the Pattern Lab Ecosystem. With this architecture, we encourage people to write and maintain their own Editions, Starterkits, and even PatternEngines.


Each package within this monorepo has its own changelog. Below are the main ones to watch:
