Where would one go to find a Sketch Plugin developer?

    You could try asking on the Sketch Plugins Developer Forum https://sketchplugins.com

    Plugins are written in JavaScript, so any JS developer should be able to build a plugin. What makes it tricky is that the public API (which is well documented https://developer.sketch.com/reference/api/) isn't complete. Many features can only be accessed through an undocumented private API. This is where someone with plugin development experience will have an advantage, but that person might be harder to find. If your plugin will have a complex UI or needs to extend the Sketch interface, things get trickier still, and familiarity with Objective-C might be useful.

      That was my thought exactly when looking at the type of stuff that InVision Craft, Anima and Material Theme Editor are doing. Building UI components into the tool itself.
