List of features

The following table provides some details on how the various "patterns" of the NSW Digitial Design System have been implemented. Where possible we have exposed the features to editors so that they have control over the components.

Feature Implementation Use
Hero Component Hero components can be added on pages as needed. They can be configured to be light or dark.
Hero Search Component This is a complex component with many aspects and the potential for variablity in structure.
Cards View Mode The Cards display option can be selected by editors when building landing pages.
Styles WYSIWYG The core styles defined by the NSW DDS are available as options in the WYSIWYG editor.
Accordion Component Accordion components can be adde don pages as needed.

Buttons WYSIWYG Buttons provide users with the ability to submit an action or follow a link to another location.

Direction links Views Direction links show users how to navigate through a page or process. The direction of the arrow provides a visual cue as to the direction, which is supported by the text.

Forms Component Forms are used to capture data from users.
Global alerts Content Global alerts display across the top of the entire site to convey important information to the users.

Pagination Component Pagination indicates to a user that a list of items has been split in to multiple pages.
Progress indicator Component, Form Coming soon! The progress indicator component shows the user where they are in a process. The component is design to work across different pages. Multistep forms have also been updated to use this component.
Side navigation Component A vertical list of links that shows the user their current position in the site hierarchy and enables them to navigate to other pages.
Social bar Content The social bar is designed to allow users to share something of interest via social media.
Tables WYSIWYG Tables provide a structured way to display information in rows and columns. This makes it easier for users to scan, sort and compare information.

Developed by Morpht

Morpht is a Sydney based Drupal agency. We have built sites for a number NSW Government agencies including DPIE, State Archives and NSW Trustee and Guardian. The Convivial for NSW website is a starter site for building sites based on the NSW Design System. We have faithfully implemented the design system and exposed this as editor friendly components. This site is, in effect, the shell for starting builds based on the Drupal content management system. We are availabe for web development projects.

Morpht would like to work with NSW Government Agencies who wish to build Drupal sited base don the NSW Digital Design System. Please get in touch if you are interested.
