Design tokens

... is a central location to store design related information such as colors, fonts, animations and so on. These raw values can then be transformed and be formatted to fit the needs of any platform.

With design tokens, you can capture low-level values and then use them to create the styles for your product or app. You can maintain a scalable and consistent visual system for UI development.

# Buttons

Buttons express what action will occur when the user clicks or touches it. Buttons are used to initialize an action, either in the background or foreground of an experience.

<figure class="sg figure sample">
  <sg-example>
    <div class="relax-card">
      <div class="relax-card-header">
        Edit customer
      </div>
      <div class="relax-card-content">
        Do you want to save?
        <div>
          <button type="button" class="relax-button">Cancel</button>
          <button type="button" class="relax-button relax-button--primary">Save</button>
