Figma to Dashbook - parabeac_core v2.6

In our last article, we covered how parabeac_core has added support for component isolation & Widgetbook. We have now also added Dashbook support in parabeac_core v2.6!

What’s Dashbook?

"Dashbook is a UI development tool for Flutter, it works as a development enviroment for the project widgets and also a showcase for common widgets on the app, it is heavly inspired by Storybook library, so it should be very easy for people who has already used Storybook, to use Dashbook."

To activate this feature, edit the config file in parabeac_core, located in parabeac_core/lib/configurations/configurations.json. Set "componentIsolation" to "componentIsolation": "dashbook"

It will look like the following:

Dashbook Config

You can duplicate and use this demo project here:

Then run parabeac_core as usual and you will have a Flutter project with Dashbook ready to test your component package.

Component Package Example Figma

Note: Parabeac only generates dashbook/widgetbook stories & use case code for Figma Components.

You can then run it using:

flutter run project_name/lib/main_dashbook.g.dart
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Running Dashbook

Next? Start adding the logic needed for this component package. Learn here! -
