For developers

How to use our components from their npm package.

Orbit-components is a React component library to help developers build travel products.


Orbit Mission

Orbit aims to bring order and consistency to all of our products and processes. We elevate the user experience and increase the speed and efficiency of how we design and build products.

Installation

orbit-components is served as an npm package.

Add them to your project by running:

// with npm
npm install @kiwicom/orbit-components
// with yarn
yarn add @kiwicom/orbit-components

Don’t forget to also install styled-components ^4.0.0.

Usage

  1. Import the fonts that are used in orbit-components:

    <link
    href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:400,400i,500,500i,700"
    rel="stylesheet"
    />

    Or via CSS:

    @import url("https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto:400,400i,500,500i,700");
  2. Include any of our components in your project and use it:

    import Alert from "@kiwicom/orbit-components/lib/Alert";
    <Alert>Hello World!</Alert>;

If you want to use a custom theme or dictionary inside your project, it’s necessary to wrap your app in <OrbitProvider>. See more info about the Orbit provider.

// with npm
npm install @types/styled-components --save-dev
// with yarn
yarn add @types/styled-components -D
