Accessible design systems & libraries: maintaining accessibility in the long run
Breaking down your products in components and working their accessibility through a standalone library is a great way to make your products and projects more accessible and inclusive. But features after features, you often realise that things start to be off. And the more contributors you will have, the harder it will be to maintain accessibility.
Creating an accessible component library requires you to make sure that Web accessibility is part of your processes at every step of the project.
To help you facing this challenge, I will share my story of building Nest, an accessible design system, and making sure this library stays accessible through our technical documentation, developer onboarding and testing strategy.
