To add multiple components into one story in Storybook, you can create a new file or folder in your Storybook project and organize your components within that file or folder. Then, you can create a new story for each component or group of components in that file or folder.


Here is a step-by-step guide on how to add multiple components into one story using Storybook:

  1. Create a new file or folder in your Storybook project to organize your components. For example, you can create a new folder called "components" and create separate files for each component within that folder.
  2. Define your components in the new file or folder according to your project structure.
  3. In the "stories" folder of your Storybook project, create a new file to house the stories for your components. You can name this file based on the component(s) you are grouping together, e.g. "ButtonGroup.stories.js".
  4. In the new stories file, import your components from the file or folder you created in step 1.
  5. Create a new story in the stories file for each component or group of components you want to display together. You can use the "storiesOf" function from @storybook/react or use ES6 module syntax to define your stories.
  6. In each story, add the imported components and any necessary props to display them as desired.
  7. Run your Storybook project using the command provided by your project setup (e.g. "npm run storybook") and navigate to the newly created story to view your components grouped together.


By following these steps, you can easily add multiple components into one story in Storybook and organize your component library more effectively.
