Usage #

This section includes guidelines for designers and developers about the usage of this component in different contexts.

Do #

  • Use established variants and color patterns so that users can clearly identify the importance level.
  • Use to show a status update on a piece of information or action.
  • Use to mark something as a “draft” or “new”.
  • Use when you want to highlight something that has been added recently.
  • Always position badge so that it’s easy to understand what object it’s related to.

Don’t #

  • Don’t make badges clickable. Instead use button component’s small variant.
  • Don’t use alternatives to existing badge variants.
  • Don't use badges for labeling, categorizing, or organizing objects. Use the tag component instead.

Content guidelines #

Badge labels should use a single word to describe the status of an object. Only use two words if you need to describe a complex state:

Action completed

When writing badge labels, always write them in sentence case, not title case. The first word should be capitalized and the rest lowercase (unless a proper noun):

Partially refunded
Partially Refunded

Avoid unnecessary words and articles in badge labels, such as “is”, “the”, “an” or “a”:

Item is pending

Always describe the status in the past tense:


Variants #

This section describes the different component variants, their purpose, and when to use each variant.
