Human Interface Guidelines

Greenkeeper badge

HIG is Autodesk's unified design system, so we can build better products faster.

Getting started

Add a component to your app:

yarn add @hig/button

Import and render the component:

import Button from '@hig/button';

function MyComponent() {
  return <Button title="Hello, world!" />

Theme data and theming components

Theme data is a representation of the HIG visual design language in the form of data. With @hig/theme-data, we publish the data in ECMAScript module, JSON, and SCSS formats. This data includes 8 themes that can be used on any platform. There are four color schemes including...

  • Light gray
  • Dark gray
  • Dark blue

...with two densities–high and low–for each scheme. See how to provide a theme to components.
