I think it would be awesome to have the ability to build a style guide in webflow before building your site. Setup your colors, headers, font styling, typography, and more, then once your elements are in place you can begin building your site from a set of predefined elements and classes. The ability to import and export these at will would also be great. Something along the lines of this:
This gives you the ability to ideate without having to commit anything to page/code upfront and would go a long toward helping project organization and structure in webflow. It would also further differentiate Webflow from it’s competitors.
That would be great. Right now I’m creating a style guide and mood board template as its own theme. I figured that way I can easily duplicate it when starting a new project and predefine the common styles before getting too deep in layout.
You can create one of these for yourself and use it as the start of every site instead of the blank template. I have thought about making one of these for a while. If you wanna team up and make one that is clonable, I’m in!
I’m with you! Such thing would be a huge time saver!
Can’t remember how often I was frustrated pasting a Header or button into an almost finished design only to get the standard design.
Of course you can define styles to it, but on more complex sites with many pages it’s important to keep a consistent design language.
What I usually do is to start with a blank page called something like “design-guide” and to paste all my elements I need for this project and style them.
But it’s not very convenient.
