Including Components In Your Project

How you choose to include Origami components in your project will depend on your projects’ requirements:

Origami Build Service

The Build service is best for quick projects or static sites or things where performance is less of a concern. This build method will fetch the Origami CSS and JavaScript as external files for your webpage. Be aware that this will indiscriminately fetch all stylistic variations of a component, which will increase your file size.

Package Manager (npm)

In order to customise your page and have more granular control over a components stylistic and behavioural features build Origami components manually. We currently do this by installing Origami components from the command line via the npm package manager. This process relies on a build step, which you may already have in your project.
