UI developers are responsible for component development, test, review, and documentation. This is often done manually. Chromatic automates these jobs and integrates them into your existing Git and CI tooling. That means you avoid tedious manual work while also saving time.
Sure, it’s possible to cobble together libraries to build some of Chromatic’s features – we’ve even authored free guides and articles that share how. But then you’d have to invest time and effort into maintaining your DIY service instead of building valuable features.
