Using Coral Spectrum

Easiest way via a CDN

The easiest way to consume Coral Spectrum is to use a CDN e.g. copy these lines into your html file.

  <!-- Adjust version accordingly -->
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="">
  <script src="" data-coral-icons-external="js"></script>
<body class="coral--light">
  <button is="coral-button" icon="add">My Button</button>

Copying the distribution files

You can also download the distribution package of the latest release by running npm i @adobe/coral-spectrum. It includes all components and styles.

After you've unzipped the package, look for the dist folder and :

Using a bundler like Webpack

If your project only requires a few components, you can use a module bundler like Webpack to only import the components needed. Below is an example of a Webpack config:

const path = require('path');
const MiniCssExtractPlugin = require('mini-css-extract-plugin');
const OptimizeCssAssetsPlugin = require('optimize-css-assets-webpack-plugin');

module.exports = {
  mode: 'production',
  devtool: 'source-map',
  entry: './src/index.js',
  output: {
    filename: 'bundle.min.js',
    path: path.resolve(__dirname, 'dist')
  module: {
    rules: [
        test: /\.js$/,
        use: {
          loader: 'babel-loader',
          options: {
            presets: ['@babel/preset-env']
        test: /\.svg$/,
        use: [
            loader: 'file-loader',
            options: {
              name: 'icons/[name].[ext]'
        test: /\.css$/,
        use: [MiniCssExtractPlugin.loader, 'css-loader']
  plugins: [
    new MiniCssExtractPlugin({
      filename: 'style.min.css'
    new OptimizeCssAssetsPlugin({
      assetNameRegExp: /style\.min\.css$/g,
      cssProcessor: require('cssnano'),
      cssProcessorPluginOptions: {
        preset: ['default', { discardComments: { removeAll: true } }],

Then in your index.js file, you can import and use single components :

// Import Component
import {Button} from '@adobe/coral-spectrum/coral-component-button';

const button = new Button();

If icons are not displayed, ensure the path to the styles and icons are set e.g. :

<link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/style.min.css">
<script data-coral-icons="dist/icons/" src="dist/bundle.min.js"></script>

Note: Calendar, Clock and Datepicker components will leverage moment.js if available.

Building and Testing

Run the following commands first :

npm install -g gulp-cli
npm install

You can use below tasks to get started:

Each component can be built independently e.g. cd coral-component-button && gulp.


We are currently releasing this package on npm.

Before we get started, clean up your dependencies with the following command :

git checkout master
rm -rf node_modules && npm install

Then run gulp release. You'll be asked to bump the version (minor version bump by default). Coral Spectrum is following semantic versioning (either patch, minor or major).

The command will take care of increasing, tagging the version and publishing the package to npm.

If everything went well, run gulp deploy to publish the documentation on the gh-pages branch else revert the version bump.
