Here’s what the Polaris design system team is working on right now.
Shopify’s list pages are used by virtually all merchants. Because of this, merchants often need to filter these lists to get a subset of items that are meaningful for their particular task. We're working on making list filters easier to understand and use.
Improving accessibility documentation
To help people that design and develop with Polaris, we’re working on adding improved documentation around building accessible features with the system. Style guide documentation will clarify which accessibility supports are built into components, how components are expected to work for people using assistive technologies, and what might additionally need to be considered or implemented based on how components are being used.
Improving Polaris icons
Icons are implemented differently across the Shopify platform with no consistency. We’re working on creating a better icon design flow and a single source of truth for icons.
