    I'm on the team making Relay. We were pretty stoked to see this show up here today all on its own! Thanks Daniel for posting, and thank you to everyone who's reading this, upvoting, or visiting the site and signing up for early access.

    Our small team is pretty excited about Relay, and we're always interested in hearing what potential users think: where they see this fitting into current processes, where the biggest potential is for this, what problems they hope it will solve, etc.

    We'd love to see your honest thoughts in the comments. (Team size and structure details are good to know, too)

    Thank you for making our Friday! Kris

      where they see this fitting into current processes, where the biggest potential is for this, what problems they hope it will solve, etc.

      I'd really like to see this automating Design System changes. Currently there's always a bit of a hurdle for designers to jump when handing off "simple" changes to Design Systems because development time for even small changes can be substantial.

      I'd like to see control of Typography and Color handed back to UI designers. The devs often don't really care about that stuff and it feels like busy work whenever a change is requested. It'd be great if designers could push these types of things to a repo where a dev just looks over it and makes sure nothing broke.

        Yes! This! All those nitpicky things that developers could care less about but drive us designers batty! I would love to be able control that production process and as Andrew mentioned just have it push to a repo where a dev can just bless it, build it, and ship it. Maybe even -as part of that process- open a pull request and notify the dev?

          What do you mean? Like a simplified style guide section of code to tweak where you set variables or define components?

      Np. I thought it was cool when Trevor told me about it and I was kind of surprised that nobody had posted it here yet. First tool of it's kind for Figma that I'm aware of. Kudos!
