SAP Web Components BETA


Welcome to the design guidelines for SAP Web Components!

In this section you’ll find the first set of design guidelines for SAP Web Components. SAP Web Components are framework-agnostic and can be easily integrated into different web development environments.

The articles for each component provide a basic design overview with interactive examples. You can also navigate to the developer documentation.


Why separate guidelines for SAP Web Components?

Although the basic design of SAP Web Components is aligned with the design for SAPUI5 controls, they can still differ in scope. As of today, SAPUI5 controls typically offer a richer set of features out of the box.

These guidelines are intended as a dedicated resource for all teams who use SAP Web Components in their products or frameworks.

Focus on “common components”

The design guidelines currently focus only on SAP Web Components that have been identified as common components. These are components that we expect to be used broadly across all SAP products.
