How To Enhance Your Web Development Process with Stackbit and Storybook

  1. Ensure that you have installed Stackbit. Stackbit is a visual editor that enables content editors to build pages and update content directly on the site, without having to rely on developers. Allowing developers to focus on building features and working on larger tasks. Follow this step-by-step guide for how to simply add in Stackbit locally to a project.

  2. Install the stackbit/storybook-addonfor Storybook. This plugin will allow you to create Stackbit models and presets based on your existing components and stories. These generated models can serve as a starting point for setting up model definitions and presets in a new project.

  3. Once the add-on is installed, return to your Storybook project. You should now see a Stackbit tab that will allow you to generate new models based on your components and stories.
