For Developers

If you’re using our Web Components, our Design Tokens are already accessible to you in the form of CSS Custom Properties as part of the package when you import astro-web-components.css.

Manual Installation

If you’d like more control over what you import and are not using our web components, you can install our design tokens separately:

npm i @astrouxds/tokens


Each export target has the following files:

  • base.reference.*
    • All of the possible variables.
    • Useful in instances where there aren’t any system options.
  • base.system.*
    • A limited set of variables with semantic meaning
    • Useful for creating custom pieces of UI.
  • base.component.*
    • Component-specific variables
    • Useful for recreating existing Astro components.
