Icons and emojis (⚠️ not validated by UX designer yet)

Twake is currently using feather icons https://feathericons.com/ and can fallback to Material Icons or FontAwesome.

Emojis on web must use the Apple emojis set preferably. On device, prefer to use the device emoji set.

Frameworks and component system

Languages and frameworks

We recommend TypeScript and VueJS for any new projects around Twake. (But Twake itself currently uses ReactJS with typescript.)

Components system

We strongly recommend using Antd design system: https://ant.design/ for 3 reasons:

  1. We want to differ from Material UI that is too recognisable

  2. Antd is very customisable, and we provide a Twake theme here: https://github.com/linagora/Twake/blob/main/twake/frontend/src/app/theme.less​

  3. Antd contain more components than Material UI
