Well hello there peeps!



  • @Graeme The biggest hurdle that all of the apps that export to React has is that they require designers to step out of their normal working design app and onto something totally new. I think we have an advantage there since you keep working inside of Sketch. You just need to learn a few more things and you're good to go. And it also limits us on what we can do inside of Sketch and that way we keep the export really clean. We are not in the business of making devs unemployed, we want designers to learn more about code to help their devs, not replace them ☺

    That is also the thinking behind not making S2R to complex, just the basic stuff.



  • @Graeme The cool thing about exploring this for other design apps is that if they have good Sketch import everything that you have setup inside of Sketch with Sketch2React will work the same way since the Preview App looks for how things are named. That will save you tons of time. Just a working hypothesis there but I think it will work.

    Also this is the serendipity of when great things come into place 😄Since all of the magic happens in our Previewer App we "only" need to make sure that things work there. We have a plugin for Sketch which is great for learning in the beginning but once you understand how things need to be named, doing it by hand (or with RenameIt Plugin) is so much much faster.

    @ninalimpi Hey Nina. Glad to be a part of it! Nice to see you too!

    both Sketch and Studio share similarities how it's built

    This is useful to know! I have looked at XD plugins, and from what I've heard, a lot is transferrable between environments.

    React export will require some kind of paid Pro account

    This also sounds a like a good plan, for free it would be difficult to maintain. Also, yeah I've used hot reload, and that would be a very useful feature.

    Looking forward to seeing where this goes!

    aha, so after making the standalone app with Hot Reload thingy, you could run anything through a Sketch importer before going into Sketch2React. That may be easier than building something custom for each platform.



  • @mrcndrw You have nice landing page there. 👌

    The video could tell bit more honestly, it was not focused, and some important scenes are to fast.

    Anyway, I shared Cabana on my Moon.ly, which is one of my side projects.

    Peace,

    We're actually going to release the desktop app really soon as a totally free beta/alpha version-thingie. It's a way to get you guys trying it out, it's a major step forward even without React export, it saves you a lot of time.



  • @juand4v I'll definitely give it a go. When you have it ready, let me know 🙂
