This feature is available for all plans. This is not available for legacy plans.

You can display your Storybook seamlessly in your styleguide. You have two ways of embedding Storybook into your styleguide: native embedding or embedding iframes. We recommend natively embedding your Storybook.

Native embedding your Storybook enables you to handle versioning much easier and display the controls as if they’re part of zeroheight.

You must integrate your Storybook with zeroheight to display your Storybook stories.

Add story

1) In the toolbar, select Storybook
