Powered by layers of tokens as CSS custom properties

kickstartDS differentiates between Branding, Design and Component Token. Whereas Design Token store values base values like color, typography, spacing, animation, etc., Branding Token are a very small token subset to setup your corporate design in lightspeed, they are what powers our 4 themes included. Component Token represent the properties and values that are contained in a component, e.g. container, label text, icons, and states.

You can rely on all those layers behind the scenes for best practice defaults, while at the same time everything can be changed with the addition of a selector and a few variable assignments, enabling unlimited customization capabilities. We've also added useful Component Token for all the components featured in this Design System. Look around in the corresponding Storybook, and explore Component Token there, in our very own Storybook addon
