During January we announced our plan to decommission the FT Bower Registry and migrate to the public npm registry.

Work has now started on migrating the Origami components onto npm, 8 out of 66 of our component are now migrated, ready to be released. We aim to have all components, including documentation/guidance for how to migrate your products, complete by the start of Q3.

As a reminder, below is a copy of our planned timeline to decommission the FT Bower Registry.

Guidance on how to customise an Origami component

We now have a page to help our users decide if they need to customise an Origami component, and if so, how to go about it in a safe, supported way which should reduce the chance of the customisation breaking in the future.

Please have a read through the page and let us know of any feedback you may have or suggestions for other topics we could write guidance for.

Special thanks

We recently had an uptick in the amount of security researchers wanting to submit reports about potential issues on polyfill.io. We’d like to thank the Cyber Security team for communicating with the security researchers and reviewing their reports for us.
