Usage #

Design tokens are a central location to store design related information such as colors, fonts, sizes and transitions. These raw values are automatically transformed to different formats like Sass, CSS, JSON and more.

Nord Design System uses design tokens instead of hard coded values to ensure a better UI consistency across different platforms.

Please note that in most cases you will want to install our CSS Framework instead of Design Tokens package directly. CSS Framework imports this package internally and gives you both the design tokens and a wide range of shorthand utility classes to modify an element’s appearance in your application.

Installation #

Before moving further, please make sure you have Node.js installed on your machine. You can install the latest version through their website.

If you’re planning on using Nord Design Tokens in a project that doesn’t yet use Node Package Manager, you’ll have to first create a package.json file. To do this, run npm init and follow the steps provided. Once finished, you can install Nord Design Tokens by following the instructions below.

Install using NPM #

Run in your project or website root directory (where package.json lives):

npm install @nordhealth/tokens

Importing CSS Custom Properties #

CSS Custom properties (sometimes referred to as CSS variables) are the recommended way to use Nord’s Design Tokens. You can import them in plain CSS or Sass:

/* Import as CSS variables */
@import "~@nordhealth/tokens/lib/tokens.custom-properties.css";

.example {
  color: var(--n-color-accent);
}

If you’re not using Webpack or similar tool for your build process, you may have to provide the full path to Node Modules:

// Import as basic variables
@import "/node_modules/@nordhealth/tokens/lib/tokens.custom-properties.css";

.example {
  color: var(--n-color-accent);
}

Importing in HTML #

CSS Custom properties can be imported in HTML as well. This is the most common and straightforward way to use them. Add the following to the <head> section of your app to get started:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://nordcdn.net/ds/tokens/7.1.0/tokens.custom-properties.css" integrity="sha384-oq5hOWENy+//pHZtNXU0kmwsnx1TBLmSyooW2y0lLhHM/OY1UJQmQsCLkj4T6yUR" crossorigin="anonymous" />

Importing in JavaScript #

In JavaScript, token names are formatted in lower camelCase. To import the design tokens, require the provided ES module:

// Import design tokens
const tokens = require("@nordhealth/tokens");

// Console.log accent color value
console.log(tokens.nColorAccent);

In JSON, design token names are formatted in snake_case:

// Import design tokens
const tokens = require("@nordhealth/tokens/lib/tokens.json");

// Console.log accent color value
console.log(tokens["n_color_accent"]);

If your project supports ECMAScript Modules, you can also use the import syntax:

// Import design tokens
import * as tokens from "@nordhealth/tokens";

// …or… import a single design token
import { nColorAccent } from "@nordhealth/tokens";

Importing in Sass #

Sass variables and map keys are formatted in kebab-case. There’re a few ways to import them. The simplest way is to reference and import the tokens partial directly:

// Import as basic variables
@import "~@nordhealth/tokens/lib/tokens.scss";

.example {
  color: $n-color-accent;
}

// Import a Sass map of all tokens
@import "~@nordhealth/tokens/lib/tokens.map.scss";

.example {
  color: map-get($tokens-map, "n-color-accent");
}

Accessing themes in JavaScript and Sass #

All our theme specific tokens have an appendix in their name. We don’t surface this in the token documentation because the recommended way to use the tokens is via CSS Custom Properties that allows us to use the Nord Themes package to override the default colors.

If you have a need to directly access specific theme’s colors in e.g. Sass or JavaScript, you can do it by adding the following appendix into the color name:

.example {
  // To access veterinary theme colors, use -vet appendix
  color: $n-color-accent-vet;

  // To access health theme colors, use -health appendix
  color: $n-color-accent-health;
}

Same when using our Common.js module:

// To access veterinary theme colors, use Vet appendix
console.log(tokens.nColorAccentVet);

// To access health theme colors, use Health appendix
console.log(tokens.nColorAccentHealth);

List of all available formats #

Below you can find a list of all available formats and paths to them.

Testing integration #

To quickly test if Nord Design Tokens are correctly installed, follow the below steps.

  1. Require common.js module: const tokens = require("@nordhealth/tokens")
  2. Use console log to output a list of all tokens: console.log(tokens)
  3. If everything works, you should now see a long list of Design Tokens in your console.

Examples #

Developing tokens #

The design tokens package in Nord Design System can be found under packages/tokens. It’s built with Theo that transforms YAML based design tokens into a variety of output formats.

The following are the most commonly used commands during development:

Can I use Nord in my own project? #

Nord Design System is solely meant for building digital products and experiences for Nordhealth. Please see the terms of use for full license details.
