A skeleton to create your own React component library using Rollup, TypeScript, Sass and Storybook

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import reactComponentLibraryReactTableTest from '';


UI Kit

Building own React UI Kit library using:

It also features:


Installing external libraries

After installing new third-party libraries, make sure you added them to rollup.config external block


npm run test


npm run build


To run a live-reload Storybook server on your local machine:

npm run storybook

To export your Storybook as static files:

npm run storybook:export

You can then serve the files under storybook-static using S3, GitHub pages, Express etc.

Generating New Components

I've included a handy NodeJS util file under util called create-component.js. Instead of copy pasting components to create a new component, you can instead run this command to generate all the files you need to start building out a new component. To use it:

npm run generate YourComponentName

This will generate:


The default templates for each file can be modified under util/templates.

Don't forget to add the component to your index.ts exports if you want the library to export the component!

Installing Component Library Locally

Let's say you have another project (test-app) on your machine that you want to try installing the component library into without having to first publish the component library. In the test-app directory, you can run:

npm i --save ../react-component-library

which will install the local component library as a dependency in test-app. It'll then appear as a dependency in package.json like:

  "dependencies": {
    "react-component-library": "file:../react-component-library",

Your components can then be imported and used in that project.


First, make sure you have an NPM account and are logged into NPM using the npm login command.

Then update the name field in package.json to reflect your NPM package name in your private or public NPM registry. Then run:

npm publish


Let's say you created a public NPM package called test-component-library with the TestComponent component created in this repository.

Usage of the component (after the library installed as a dependency into another project) will be:

import React from "react";
import { TestComponent } from "test-component-library";

const App = () => (
  <div className="app-container">
    <h1>Hello I'm consuming the component library</h1>
    <TestComponent theme="primary" />

export default App;
