I wonder could this theoretically open up to realtime data populated sketch docs? Think about it? No more lipsum, using actual data from the site which can be updated. Either JSON or RSS?
It would be incredible I think. You could easily use something along the lines of twig/one of the popular js libraries to pull in the fields!
Absolutely! When I first realized you could make HTTP requests from plugins that's the first thing I started thinking about.
I have a rough plugin that I built for a talk about plugins that takes an RSS feed–converted to a JSON object–and generates elements based off the data and a base post element.
I plan to do some more work on it to make it work directly with RSS instead of needing to convert to JSON and making it more flexible to the types of data that could come through.
Sorry guys I'm a little confused, but why or how would I use this? Using or placing Dribbble shots in a sketch?
Good to see another plugin from you, Ale!
Oh, not mine. Just passing the link around : )
