Phil Kelly, Senior Engineer
Where we started
We help couples (and everyone who loves them!) navigate and enjoy life’s biggest moments together.
Perez Photography, Shang Chen Photography, Thinkstock
We saw it as a project, not a product.
No dedicated support + No iterations = No cohesive design language.
Where we are now
Component cut-up workshop
GUI kit versioning
Documentation powered by Jekyll

1) Packages are published to an npm repo which apps include
in package.json and bundle as they see fit (probably
2) Simpler monolithic structure similar to ant.design
