Components modules

kickstartDS is split into different component modules which are all built on top of each other

Core Module

Open Source

The foundational layer of a kickstartDS instance is primarily the Core Module, which serves as the basis for every layout through its Container Component. Unlike other modules, it doesn't offer any grab-and-go components, but it does feature container queries as its unique attribute.

Base Module

Open Source

Our kickstartDS Base Module provides a comprehensive component library that empowers digital teams to create efficient and brand-compliant web frontends with ease. It offers a solid set of default components that serve as the building blocks to craft a custom Design System from the ground up, using a code-first approach.

Forms Module

Open Source

The Form Module contains all the form elements you need to be styled to create your form recipes on top of it.

Blog Module

Open Source

A Design System is nothing without a system applying it. That's why we created a simple set of Blog components to empower you creating value to bring kickstartDS into action. The Blog Module contains five rich components.

Closed Component Module

Content Module

The perfect addition to our Open Source base

The Content Module includes seven rich components.All the Design System components you need when building beautiful content experiences or to enrich your existing Design System.
