Storybook enables you to build, test, and document your UI components.
There are two methods of integrating Storybook with zeroheight. Here are the main differences between each method.
The ‘native embed’ is designed to give a more native feel with easier resizing controls, a more intuitive interface for selecting stories in zeroheight and better handling of Storybook versions.
The ‘embedded iframe’ method embeds a single URL at a time and brings the entire contents of the page into zeroheight.
