Chakra UI + Storybook

Use the official Storybook Addon for Chakra UI to configure Storybook to automatically wrap your stories with the <ChakraProvider /> and add a color mode toggle.

Installation#

yarn add -D @chakra-ui/storybook-addon
npm i -D @chakra-ui/storybook-addon

@chakra-ui/storybook-addon@>2.0.0 is compatible with storybook >6.4

Usage#

Add the addon to your configuration in .storybook/main.js:

module.exports = {
addons: ['@chakra-ui/storybook-addon'],
features: {
emotionAlias: false,
},
}

You can specify global parameters for the addon in .storybook/preview.js. These options are the same as the props to ChakraProvider (without children).

// .storybook/preview.js
const theme = require('../path/to/your/theme')
export const parameters = {
chakra: {
theme,
},
}

Troubleshooting Storybook#

If you're facing an issue where Storybook isn't working with Chakra UI, here's a work around 👇

In your .storybook/main.js file, you'll need to config the features and webpackFinal properties like so:

module.exports = {
stories: ['../**/*.stories.mdx', '../**/*.stories.@(js|jsx|ts|tsx)'],
addons: ['@storybook/addon-links', '@storybook/addon-essentials'],
framework: '@storybook/react',
features: { emotionAlias: false },
webpackFinal: async (config) => {
config.module.rules.push({
test: /\.mjs$/,
include: /node_modules/,
type: 'javascript/auto',
})
return config
},
}
