Prototype kit fork

Written on 26 May 2021

When I start a new prototype for gov projects I tend to go do a lot of the same things, a lot of the same setup. To try and save myself some time I decided to fork the kit and have a version ready with some of the changes I like to make, and I figured I’d share it, because why not and open source and things.

Anyway, here it is, my GOV.UK Prototype Kit fork.

As of right now it includes:

  • a new ‘internal’ config variable which replace the GOV.UK logo with the service name and remove some other things
  • a prototype phase banner
  • a link in the footer to the currrent page in the heroku app
  • a link in the footer to the git repo
  • a feature and versioning system
  • a date filter

I was thinking of adding a few more things as and when, but if you have any suggestions feel free to get in touch on Twitter.
