In their Words
Adele is an open source repository of publicly available design systems and pattern libraries. In no time you can get a list of systems that use a particular technology, data structure or have a part of the system that you’re interested in. Whether you’re looking for react components, css-in-js, accessibility guidelines or color palettes — Adele has you covered. Learn, explore, enjoy and build better systems!
We’re starting with 43 systems analyzed in 30 categories. You can conveniently browse them on Adele’s website. But… there’s going to be more. From the grounds up Adele has been created as an open source tool for the community of design systems builders and maintainers.
Adele is on the mission to collect information about all the publicly available design systems. And this is exactly why Adele is open source.
All the data about systems is available as individual JSONs. Anybody can contribute by refining the data or adding new systems.
If you don’t see your system in Adele, you found some missing data, or you’re willing to add another category of data — by all means, do it! Only together we can make this repository complete.
Surprise. Adele — Design Systems Repository, has not been named after Adele — the singer. Adele is a tribute to one of the most important computer scientists focused on graphic user interfaces, design patterns and object-oriented programming — Adele Goldeberg.
