Kactus - Version control (as in git) to designers (only sketch for now)(kactus.io)

    This is purely my opinion, but I feel a modern digital designer should learn git, not just learn the bad git workflow habits that a GUI-only user ends up with. You'll integrate far better with an agency, and have an improved understanding of how version controlling works.

    These days, it pays for a designer to have a level of development workflow under their belt. We're not in a single-hat world any more, you'll end up having to wear a full stack of hats some day if you aren't already.

      I totally agree! But you still need something to make your sketch files usable in git. That’s what Kactus is doing. Also I feel that a GUI is probably a good place to start instead of giving up because of a too steep learning curve :)

        That is what the Kactus CLI is doing, but is the Kactus app a hard requirement to make the workflow work? I’d much rather do everything from the command line and have watch scripts do the heavy lifting. Is that a feasible route?
