Rational Design is a tool for generating type-scales for use in design systems or web design projects. It’s built with React Hooks, SCSS, Webpack, and npm scripts, and is fully responsive.
Rational Design uses a combination of state and useRef Hooks to dynamically render type scales according to user input. This originally created some delays in state updating properly due to stale closures, but useRef solves this issue by returning the same
ref value in memory during each rerender.

Feel free to submit a pull request if you want to add features or changes, though I would caution this app is still in early stages and I plan to greatly expand its current feature set.
