React higher order components

A higher-order component (HOC) is an advanced technique in React for reusing component logic. HOCs are not part of the React API, per se. They are a pattern that emerges from React’s compositional nature.

Concretely, a higher-order component is a function that takes a component and returns a new component.

https://reactjs.org/docs/higher-order-components.html

What is a Design system

  • A collection of reusable components
  • A place for collaboration amongst designers and developers
  • A set of standards that must be adhered too
  • A set of guidelines and principles that are relevant to the business

Not just a component library

A component library is a library of reusable components that other designers and developers can use.

A design system also sets out a series of rules and standards for the components and surrounding design. These include but are not limited to

  • Typography
  • Spacing
  • Branding
  • User experience
  • Language
  • Voice and tone
  • Colours
  • Patten

Often, a design system will explain what is allowed and what is not allowed.
