Design System for Video Streaming Platform
We have successfully implemented a design system aimed at enhancing development efficiency and consistency in the digital transformation and sales engagement industry. The primary product under consideration is an advanced meeting application that offers seamless audio and video streaming, screen sharing, and robust integration with Amazon Chime services.
Front End Development
The challenge was to establish a design system that maximizes development efficiency, ensures consistency in a dynamic digital transformation and sales engagement landscape, and improves the speed of the Quality Assurance (QA) process.
In crafting our design system, we've assembled a diverse range of components, built on React and Angular. The transition from available documentation at Docz to a more dynamic Storybook has significantly enhanced clarity and collaboration among team members.
To fortify the reliability of our design system, we integrated automated UI testing through Chromatic, ensuring robustness and a seamless user experience.
In order to align our design system with unique conventions, we introduced the 'OA Automation Middleware' library. This innovation includes special data-test-ids/selectors tailored for QA purposes, creating a system that caters specifically to our team's needs. Moreover, we integrated react.i18next for seamless internationalization, enriching the system with reusable elements and patterns that go beyond the official version, accommodating both Angular and React environments.
Our streamlined product development approach is bolstered by the FE-BE Boilerplate, the foundational framework behind products like Live Meetings and Meeting Dashboards. This robust toolset includes TypeScript, ESLint, unit tests, Storybook for custom components, and seamless Redux integration. Collectively, these initiatives have significantly elevated our development process, resulting in the delivery of feature-rich and consistently high-quality products.
