This package consists of all DesignSystem components from AdminBro so you can use all of them outside the admin-bro core.

It was created with the help of 2 amazing packages:

make sure to check them out to use the full potential of this design system.


yarn add styled-components @admin-bro/design-system

Optionally, if you use typescript, you might want to install types for styled-components

yarn add --dev @types/styled-components

Design System needs a theme so in order to use it you have to use ThemeProvider from styled-components like this:

import { ThemeProvider } from 'styled-components'

// theme is the default theme, which you can alter
import { theme, Button, Box, Icon } from '@admin-bro/design-system'

function App() {
  return (
    <ThemeProvider theme={theme}>
      <Box variant="grey">
        <Button><Icon icon="Add" />Click Me</Button>
        <Button variant='primary' ml="xl">I am important</Button>

export default App;

Changing theme

Design System provides you with the default theme. It contains all the parameters like paddings, colors, font sizes etc. For the list of all available parameters take a look at the Theme spec.

But nothing stands in a way for you to change the default theme. In order to do that you can use combineStyles method:

import { combineStyles } from '@admin-bro/design-system`

const myTheme = combineStyles({
  colors: {
    primary100: '#000'

<ThemeProvider theme={myTheme}>

Changing particular components

Sometimes you might want to change the look and feel of a particular component - not the entire theme. You can achieve that with styled method:

import { Button } from '@admin-bro/design-system'
import styled from 'styled-components'

const MyRoundedButton = styled(Button)`
  border-radius: 10px;

and then you can use it like a normal button component:

<MyRoundedButton variant="primary">Rounded I am</MyRoundedButton>
