Installing exporters

How to install exporters in Supernova

In order to use an exporter, it must be installed in your workspace. The exporter will then be available to all developers with access to your workspace.

There are two ways to install an exporter package: installing an existing exporter from the Exporter Store, or by linking a GitHub repository containing an exporter package.

Installing an exporter

Only owners and admins can install exporters. See Permissions.

  1. In the exporter store, locate the exporter you would like to install

  2. Click the Install button

The exporter will be installed and now available to use. Navigate to the Code Integration page in Supernova to see a list of Installed exporters.

Install an exporter from a GitHub repository

In Supernova, all Exporters are backed by GitHub repositories. To install an exporter you've created — or someone else's exporter — from a GitHub repository:

  1. In Supernova, in the Store tab, click + New

  2. Enter a valid GitHub repository URL

  3. Click Confirm

The name, description and all other metadata about the exporter package will be taken from the exporter.json configuration file.

Exporter preview

Before or after installing an exporter, you can see a preview of the output using your design system data.

  1. In the exporter Store, or in your list of Installed exporters, click any exporter to open the exporter detail page

  2. Scroll to the Code preview section

  3. If you want to test against a different design system or version, select another option from the Test against and Version dropdown

  4. Click Run to see the new preview
