Pega Platform™ 8.6 comes with the following design systems:  

  • Theme Cosmos

    Built with the classic section-based UI architecture and offering full case management capabilities since Pega Platform 8.3, Theme Cosmos is mature, reliable, and is the default and recommended architecture for most new applications in release 8.6.
  • Theme UI-Kit

    The classic, section-based set of product design resources, used predominantly in existing Pega applications. No longer developed. 
  • Cosmos React (early adopter)

    Offered in early adopter mode, Cosmos React is a new and modernized UI technology stack built with ReactJS and a client-side orchestration layer. Currently offering a limited feature set, it is likely not suitable for production applications.
