Explore Component Interfaces with Storybook Controls

In Storybook, we can interactively explore and stress-test components with Storybook Controls.

Storybook provides a UI control for every component arg. We can use these to explore different outcomes.

Storybook automatically generates Controls for stories that use the CSF3 object syntax. In this format, args are defined on a story are applied to the component defined in component meta.

Unlike rendering a component and passing props directly to it, args involve Storybook — giving us Controls for free.

With controls, more teammates can become part of the component development and QA process — building more robust components together.
