    Thanks.

    I often work with JIRA to keep track of open issues and to do's. Also a lot of engineers use these kind of tools to manage their work process. And tools like Zeppelin luckily help us document less and less in environments like Confluence.

    Where does Abstract fits in this field?

      It fits however you want it to fit. Personally, we use Github Issues to keep track of our to do's, and I'll typically create a new branch in Abstract per issue. There are some nice parallels which keep coming back. Over time we'll learn more and see which other parts we can focus on.

      We're planning to do integrations with products like JIRA, Github, etc so that we can help keep these things in sync. Abstract is the reliable record of all the work—ongoing and completed—allowing the design team, PMs, Engineers, Marketing, etc all to have one place to reference, leave feedback, and track the work.

        What would GitHub sync look like? Would it allow us to keep approved versions of .sketch assets in a GitHub repo? This would allow integration with out Git and npm tools we use to build UI from Sketch files.

          We are just starting to think about that so I don't have a concrete answer for you just yet. But yes, generally, that would be something we would like to see happen.
