Create your own custom Primefaces UI library

Once you’ve customized and made all the tweaks to your UI components to create the unique visual identity for your project, you can go on and save and publish those components in your own custom (and reusable) UI library.
Doing so will not only save you tons of time, effort and money, it will also facilitate the design and/or iteration of your projects and ensure consistency overall. Think of it as a collection of all of your product’s or brand’s identity standards readily available for you and your team to use.

The takeaway

Designing an app or website from scratch can be resource-intensive. By using ready-to-use UI libraries with interactive components such as this one, you can significantly reduce both the time and cost associated with UI and UX design. The saved time can be allocated to other crucial design tasks, such as user research, usability testing, and interaction design.
