What is Merge?

Merge is a UXPin technology that allows designers to expedite and advance their designs. With Merge, designers can use the same components developers use to finalize products. High-fidelity prototypes closely mirror the user experience and quicken the hand-off process.

Merge React Components & Integration

Merge integrates UI components using Git, NPM, and Storybook. With Git you can edit and customize your components. With an NPM package, you can sort UI components into libraries. Components and assets are added to projects through the library, and the Storybook integration, creating interactive and developer-ready prototypes.
