    Sketch is the standard at the moment, but it's only been so for a short number of years. Big design teams were still switching away from Photoshop less than 3 years ago.

    It was the first of its kind that solved the right needs for designers—vector-based, simple artboards with web-native layouts, awesome export support for multi-size output, etc. But as the industry has evolved in more tools, Sketch has increasingly become bloated, bug-ridden, and unreliable. I'm more than happy to see someone step in with an attempt to replace it. In this industry, I feel becoming stuck with a particular workflow is foolish—there's always going to be better tools next year.

      Correct. But the reason I ask the question (and sure, I probably already know the answer unfortunately) is that even if I want to use this tool right now, I can't. I can't use it because everyone else I work with uses Sketch.

      Edit: To be super clear, if Framer Design had the ability to push Sketch files out the same way it pulls them in then you'd probably see adoption skyrocket immediately.
