Atlassian's official UI library, built according to the Atlassian Design Guidelines.

Language: JavaScript


node v8.4.0+ bolt v0.20.6+ contributions welcome

Atlaskit is the technical implementation of the Atlassian Design Guidelines. It is a collection of reusable components that can be downloaded independently into your projects. Each component is also independently versioned and published to npm.

The full list of components can be found in the Atlaskit Registry.

This project is bound by a Code of Conduct.

Installation and usage

Atlaskit components and utilities are available as discrete npm packages.


It's strongly advised to use the Atlaskit CSS reset in your whole project, or some Atlaskit components may diverge in appearance:

import '@atlaskit/css-reset';

In general, you should avoid directly styling base elements (ex. p, h1, h2) and uses classes instead.

Example for React projects

Atlaskit components are built for React. Here's an example of using the Avatar component:

  1. First, you specify a component into your project as a dependency using npm: npm install @atlaskit/avatar
  2. Then you can use it in your React projects like this:
import React from 'react';
import Avatar from '@atlaskit/avatar';

export default (

Check out the Atlaskit Registry to learn more.

Example for non-React projects

There is a subset of components available as styles called the Reduced UI pack. To use:

  1. You include these into your the HTML projects.
<link rel="stylesheet" href="//" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="//" />
  1. Then you can style HTML with

<button class="ak-button ak-button__appearance-primary">Submit</button>

Check out the Reduced UI pack for more examples and details.

Upgrading components

When upgrading an Atlaskit component, all changelogs can be found in the Atlaskit Registry.


A comprehensive list of components and detailed usage of each can be found in the Atlaskit Registry, which contains both guides on contributing to atlaskit, as well as documentation for each package.

You can also find how each component is meant to be used from a design perspective on the Atlassian Design Guidelines website.
