Discussion on: Would you buy a design system with React components?

Personally, I would not. My reasons are numerous, but some include:

  1. Another dependency
  2. Component does not behave as expected. Have to wait for fix or fix myself.
  3. My requirements change over time and the component no longer fits the bill - needs extending. Do I wait for you to fix or do I fix?

Just my opinion of course.

Thanks for the reply, Eddie. A big concern for me is around updating components. "Updates for life" sounds like a promise that could be hard to keep.
