Hey all,I am finding it hard to identify how to import various Sanity components. For example I would like to import the Alert into my custom component but all of the following do not work:

import Alert from "part:@sanity/components/Alert";
import Alert from "part:@sanity/components/alerts/default";
import Alert from "part:@sanity/components/alerts/Alert";
I have however been able to import the default button and dialog using these imports

import Button from "part:@sanity/components/buttons/default";
import Dialog from "part:@sanity/components/dialogs/default";
I wasn’t able to find much documentation on this other than a few examples here:

Have you tried importing from sanityui? ie.
import { Alert } from '@sanity/ui'

Actually cant see an alert component in there so ignore that, https://www.sanity.io/ui/docs

Hmm interesting though, would @sanity/ui be considered the best practice? Or is neither preferred?

Just display a warning, with warning style colours. Something along the lines of this:

Hi! You can create this component yourself with
@sanity/ui
, as it looks like the Alert component is legacy code. Here something I put together in the UI arcade for you, hope it helps: https://www.sanity.io/ui/arcade?mode=jsx&jsx=eJx1U01v1DAQvfdXPPm8bQqtxCXZA5WKkFAPwA[…]cExB0eBysWzCSWfqaj7TV6egrqaB%2Fft7gK2r6Uqsz%2FS7vz7rP9QQ7Qc%3D

And I would definitely recommend using
@sanity/ui
when developing for the Studio 👍
