Data Driven Forms is a monorepo that uses Lerna and yarn workspaces, so you can use all its commands as well.

yarn install
yarn build

All packages are linked together by default, so if you run a yarn build in a package, all other packages are updated to the latest version of that package.

Don't forget to build all packages, which are linked together!

Each package has a small playground package/demo, where you can test your changes.

cd packages/pf3-component-mapper
yarn start

The documentation is a server-side rendered React application based on NextJS framework.

cd packages/react-renderer-demo
yarn dev
yarn lerna clean # will delete all node_modules

Tests needed to be run from the core folder.

yarn test
yarn test packages/pf3-component-mapper

Data Driven Forms uses Semantic Release


[type]([package]): message
fix(pf3): title accepts node


  • feat: a new feature, will trigger new _.X._ release
  • fix: a fix, will trigger new _._.X release


  • Please describe which package is being changed pf3, renderer, ...

Please, do not use Semantic Release, if you update only the demo.

All packages are releasing together and they share the version number.

If your changes influence API or add new features, you should describe these new options in the react-renderer-demo repository. Thanks!

To generate a mapper template, run:

yarn generate-template

This command starts a CLI, that provides an interface for generating mappers. A mapper folder will be created and it will be populated with all neccesary files.
