Make apps faster with CARTO's front-end design library

Location Intelligence platform creators CARTO have announced the launch of Airship, a front end design library for map applications.

Airship provides developers with pre-built code snippets to create customisable and beautifully designed user interfaces. It allows for an intuitive experience for both developers and the end users.

Airship is one of the tools CARTO released (alongside CARTO.js 4.0 and Developer Centre) at the CARTO Locations Madrid 2018 Conference.

Airship has a range of independent and reusable components that can be combined into advanced components. These components include:

Donut Chart:

Gauge Chart:

Buttons and switches:

Add a range of different buttons and switches into your LI application.

Flags, Legends, Pop Ups & more:

Several other components have been added to display important information simply and beautifully.
