[…] design APIs don’t seem like a stretch of the imagination. An API-driven approach is the natural extension of the work currently being done on design systems, including tokens and standardization projects.
If you buy into the idea of design tokens, that expresses itself as a chunk of JSON with things like colors and spacing values. No reason an API couldn’t deliver that, potentially empowering a build process that pulls the most recent decisions from a central location.
Design systems increase the speed of development across teams, as well as make your applications look and feel consistent. Take this course with Emma Bostian to learn the foundational concepts of building a design system.
