React Sketch App

saw this yesterday and immediately thought it would’ve made for a cool or interesting thing to play around with on our hackathon over here @addthis… but alas, i’m already booked helping a few groups out already, so might have to put this one in the back pocket for later — React Sketch.app

The “normal” workflow I’m sure we’ve all lived is that design happens, then coding happens. A healthy workflow has back-and-forth between everyone involved in a project, including designers and developers, but still: The code is the final product. You design your way to code, you don’t code your way to designs.

It was only a little over a month ago when it was news that Sketch 43 was moving to a .JSON file format. […]

“Interesting.” I thought to myself. “It’s like an API to a design document. I wonder how this will play out.” Little did I know just weeks later we’d see a really powerful tool drop.

Jon Gold, for Airbnb:

… share a tool we built to help bridge the gap between designers and engineers working on design systems at scale. React-sketchapp is an open-source library that allows you to write React components that render to Sketch documents.

oh man, this could be huge… i mean seriously, think about it… we design/develop with both React and Sketch on a daily basis here, so this could potentionally be a bit of a game changer.

will definitely have to follow-up on this one.

PS. Auto Layout for Sketch
