Product updates: Experience accessible and coordinated workflows in Knapsack

Inclusive Products = Better User Experiences

Enhanced Accessibility: We care deeply about accessibility, and that’s why we’ve made some key updates to Buttons, Tooltips, and Inputs. From now on, the Label prop is required on all buttons, ensuring better accessibility support. This is a significant improvement for all our users and helps make Knapsack more inclusive.

Improved Accessibility Testing Standards: To ensure all demos meet our accessibility standards, we’ve made our accessibility testing run on Knapsack demos. This means no more merging with accessibility violations! We’re committed to making our platform accessible for everyone, and this update helps us achieve that goal.

Keep Teams Coordinated with Pattern Statues

In Knapsack, Statuses serve as a coordinating element by being tied to Pattern Pages. These Statuses are designed to provide an in-context indication of the current state of a pattern at any given time. With their inherent flexibility and ease of management, Statuses can seamlessly integrate into your team's governance model in a way that best aligns with your objectives. Please note that you must be logged in and working on a branch to edit. Please refer to our documentation on status sets, available here.
