A next-generation tool to create blazing-fast documentation sites

Introducing addon-catalog

Fresh off the oven, the addon-catalog is meant to collect and display a grid-like list of component cards.

You can include the new component catalogs in your MDX documentation files, along with other general information about your components library.

Live example

For a quick preview, you can check this live example of our library of theme-ui based components:


The addon-catalog is not installed by default when using component-controls, and you will need to add it to your project

yarn add @component-controls/addon-catalog

Catalog usage


import { Catalog } from '@component-controls/addon-catalog';
# Components
filter={({ doc }) => doc.title.startsWith('Components')} <!-- filter which components to display -->
group={({ story }) => story.category} <!-- grouping of the filtered components by the category field of the document -->

The <Catalog /> component comes with search and filter features and allows for custom grouping of the selected components:

  • preview rendered component
  • dates created and last committed
  • commits on component's file
  • component's contributors
  • number of lines, todos and comments
