Does anyone know if there is a page that demonstrates all of the available supported lightning/aura/whatever widgets? Here is an example of one for the Lightning Dart implementation:


Ideally, each sample would have a source code panel where a developer could copy and paste the code for the desired component.

  • As far as I can tell, there is no official source that demonstrates all of the Lightning Components. If you want to help contribute to a project, I would not be adverse to writing a public source code demo on GitHub that could be installed/etc. – sfdcfox Feb 23 '18 at 21:07
  • sfdcfox, I would love to do that. I think it's an absolute requirement for any modern framework. I've got the same user id on github (mmoo9154). Let me know how I can help. – Mark Moore Feb 23 '18 at 21:32
  • I'll create a repo for this, give me a day to get a basic design up, and we'll go from there; you can submit issues, pull requests, any way you think you can contribute. If you have a design in mind, I'd love to see some examples, maybe from somewhere on the interwebs. My github is brianmfear. Looking forward to it. – sfdcfox Feb 23 '18 at 21:48
  • sfdcfox, the Google Material UI has a comprehensive spec with examples and source. Checkout material-ui.com/#/components/avatar for instance. – Mark Moore Feb 25 '18 at 0:39
  • Now that you've added some more comments, I'm not entirely sure what the ask is. Can you email me and we'll take this offline? – sfdcfox Feb 25 '18 at 4:54

Check out the new Lightning Component library at https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/component-library. It's a remarkable improvement over the classic doc site.

Expect more improvements in the new library with every release.

  • Kevin, thanks for the response! I do like the Lightning Component Library page. Unfortunately, it's kind of bottoms up and incomplete. It's also focused on the Lightning Components, not on the Salesforce Lightning Design System. SLDS is a complete spec of UI components, their appearance and their behaviour. What's missing is a comprehensive library of sample SLDS implementations in Apex/XML/JS for use in Lightning Apps and Components. That's what I hope sfdcfox and I will be doing. :-) – Mark Moore Feb 25 '18 at 0:47
  • I don’t follow your comment about bottoms up. Can you elaborate please? – Kevin Venkiteswaran Feb 27 '18 at 5:20
  • The lightning namespace components are an implementation (in Lightning) of many of the SLDS patterns. There are gaps and we’re working to fill them. – Kevin Venkiteswaran Feb 27 '18 at 5:21

I think you may have a misunderstanding what lightning and SLDS are...

The gaps mentioned in the other comments are here. They are closing with every release: https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=lightning_components_roadmap.htm.

You have two choices right now are to implement SLDS in your own JS/HTML (what you're attempting to do) and wrap them in a re-useable component. There are others who have done this: http://www.lightningstrike.io/


You can wait for the base components, implemented by Salesforce to be released.

Copy-pasting the code for your own implementation grossly misunderstands what the point of lightning component re-usability are all about. Right now, if you wanted to implement a lightning component (or visualforce with a bunch of javascript) your're to copy-paste the HTML in SLDS and then wire up your own javascript interactions.

I hope that makes sense, but the source you're talking about is exactly this: https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/component-library

  • tsalb, thanks for the comment, and thanks so much for always being up on freenode.com on the #salesforce channel. It is awesome, but it's not quite what I'm wishing existed (and must exist somewhere). For instance, someone somewhere at Salesforce has created an interface inventory like this BTW, if copy and paste "grossly misunderstands", I think I haven't painted the correct picture with my problem statement. – Mark Moore Mar 7 '18 at 5:20
  • Since Lightning Experience (LE) has been implemented with Lightning Components, there should be a complete set of examples for each of the UI features presented in LE. Here's a concrete example of a problem I'm currently wrestling with: salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/210581/… – Mark Moore Mar 7 '18 at 6:31
  • I was able to cobble together an interface inventory from the salesforce-ux/design-system-ui-kit on GitHub. Here's the PDF Many of the items are included in the link you posted @tsalb. If that were an open source project, we could fill in the gaps. Ideally, a developer could just click on the artifact in the interface inventory and go straight to the entry (with sample code) at developer.salesforce.com/docs/component-library – Mark Moore Mar 7 '18 at 13:13
