How to check AEM component library components functionalities in our local.
There are components we have developed already and we need to check there are component in AEM component library using those can we accomplish the same features. for that any way to get aem component library into our local? and also for component library version how we can check ?
There's no AEM component library that ships for free against your organisations custom components, however, you can use the Components Console from AEM. Simply navigate to main navigation > tools > general > components (http://localhost:4502/libs/wcm/core/content/sites/components.html).
The Components Console will be able to show you details, policies, and live usage of how the component is being used.
If your component has a README.MD detailed information can be exposed in the Components Console, take a look at the AEM V2 WCM Core Components Breadcrumb, http://localhost:4502/apps/core/wcm/components/breadcrumb/v2/breadcrumb/README.md.

If you wish to build a components library that looks something like this, https://www.aemcomponents.dev/, you would need to re-create a New AEM site that has a single responsibility, which is to showcase your organizations custom components with its details.
When you are building components, a website like this will not be automatically generated, https://www.aemcomponents.dev
A component library is nothing but an AEM site that showcases components. In the example of https://www.aemcomponents.dev., the components showcased are AEM WCM Core Components. You can definitely use these components to speed up your AEM development.
@JakeCham As per my understanding you are looking for site https://www.aemcomponents.dev/ in your local so that you can play with it and replace your custom component with core components, if that is the case. Do the following
In order to understand the behavior of core components in your local, below are the ways
Creating proxy component :
Create node of type - cq:Component -> Add below properties
sling:resourceSuperType -> core/wcm/components/breadcrumb/v2/breadcrumb
jcr:title -> My project breadcrumb
