Getting Started

Download DD App Template

We have designed a basic template which includes our stylesheet and collapsible component. Download it here.

Basic Guidelines

  • Apps should take only the space they need
  • Apps should leverage DroneDeploy CSS styles (styles.css) and should be designed to look native to the platform
  • Use of company logos are welcome but colors should generally coordinate to the DroneDeploy color palette
  • Apps with actions (e.g. sign in) should generally first be engaged with (e.g. clicked), before they expand to show more content
    • Apps, by default, are in a non-expanded state of 60px in height
    • When expanded (clicked), apps can be up to 360px in height

Understanding our Grid System

Our default styles include a basic 4 column grid system, enabling a layout for your app that is similar to the DroneDeploy site:

Content should generally be left-justified.

There are three major components — containers, rows, and columns.

  • Rows are horizontal groups of columns that ensure your columns are lined up properly.

  • Containers — .container for the appropriate fixed width and maintaining app related elements within scope.

  • Column classes indicate the number of columns you’d like to use out of the possible 4 per row. So if you want 2 equal-width columns, you’d use .col-2twice or if you’d like an icon, then 3 columns of text, you’d use .col-1, and then .col-3

  • Hierarchy: .container > .row > .col-4

Grid System Examples

All app's detailed content will be within the expandable div.

.col-3 - Logo

.col-1 - Button

<div class="container expand-container">
    <div class="row expand-row">

          <div class="col-1 right">
                   <img src="" alt="collapse" class="expand-arrow">
