StarterKit for Brand.ai integration with Pattern Lab
A pattern tree built for the Brand.ai and Pattern Lab integration.
You can import the StarterKit using one of the following commands:
php core/console --starterkit --install brandai/starterkit-mustache-brandai
npm install brandai/starterkit-mustache-brandai gulp patternlab:loadstarterkit --kit=starterkit-mustache-brandai
Note: use --clean=true if you want Brand.ai patterns to replace your current patterns, otherwise keep it false.
You can learn more about Pattern Lab StarterKit installations in the Pattern Lab wiki: https://github.com/pattern-lab/patternlab-node/wiki/Importing-Starterkits.
In this StarterKit you'll find patterns that display your style data from Brand.ai under BRANDAI menu item. Pattners:
You can use these elements and your style data as standard Pattern Lab components, and the data as mustache data access flow.
Note: for a font to be rendered correctly, include your font directly in Pattern Lab.
This starter kit contains style-data.json representing an example project from Brand.ai.
To have Pattern Lab use data from your design library, replace the default style-data.json with the style-data.json that's available for your design library. You can find the latter by visiting the data export app on Brand.ai. See an example data export page.
You can download the style-data.json file and copy it to your source folder. Alternatively, you can automate this process by running a brandai-cli command. This makes it easy to update Pattern Lab as your design library changes.
Here's how you'd do it.
npm install brandai-cli --global
Then execute the below command that will download the JSON style data from Brand.ai and copy it to the destination folder.
brandai json --dest source/_data --organization <organization> --library --<design library>
