About Cosmos patterns

The Cosmos design system is about configuring, not customizing, your application. When you configure an application, you are building an application with great end-user-UX through a prescriptive presentation. On the other hand, customization involves building “from scratch”. With Cosmos, we’ve built a design system that meets most enterprise application UI needs, out-of-the-box, and allows you to focus on deeper design decisions.

Building great applications starts with the Cosmos design patterns— pre-configured combinations of components that are proven to drive user productivity.

Each Cosmos pattern solves common user problems by offering repeatable, efficient workflows that help users complete work. Patterns also save you design and development time, enabling you to build consistent, productive, and scalable UX for your application, fast.
