What is UI Kit and what are its benefits for product development?

A UI kit is a set of elements used to create the user interface of a website or application. It includes buttons, icons, typography, forms, and other elements that make up the final user interface. The benefits of a UI kit are similar for both developers and designers: it provides consistency, facilitates development and changes in the product. Using existing elements can serve as a source of inspiration and starting point for creating a user interface saving time by eliminating the need to design each element from scratch.
