    Guys, you MUST try this app of pure awesomeness! It let you share your sketch file with your favorite developer via web!

    I've been using the Zeplin Beta for awhile and it's been extremely useful with handing over designs to developers. It's also nice to check your own designs and make sure you're not using different shades of a brand color, or too many type sizes.

    Congrats on the launch! I've been following Zeplin since day 1 and I've been very impressed with the growth. Definitely one of the highlights in my workshops.

    This is great!

    Just a heads up though, the navigation icons don't seem to work in Chrome on Windows. http://d.pr/i/1kOwO

      Hey Marc, couldn’t you see the icons? We love them. Shame on us.:/ http://imgur.com/d7f0Vx9

        Weird, I can see them just fine in Chrome on my mac at home but not on my work computer which is running Windows 7. I tested in Firefox and my computer seems to be the issue as they don't show up there either.

        Nice work on the app and the website btw, it's going straight to my "convince my boss to switch to Sketch" toolbox!

    No more plans to support photoshop?

    I'd pay extra for a standalone-offline application that imports my PSD/Sketch files and spits out a style guide like this.

      Hey Matthew, I'm Pelin, one of the co-founders of Zeplin.

      Actually one of the main reasons we built Zeplin is to avoid creating static documents since designs are being updating so fast :) If you invite people to your project, they can always see the latests, updated specs/guides, discuss on them and so on.

        Hey Pelin,

        I definitely see the value in maintaining a live style guide especially with where I'm at, we're pushing to production every day and working across multiple products simultaneously so this could be valuable within that effort.

        I guess I'm just personally not a fan of the subscription model, that's nothing against you though, you continue to maintain and support a product so it makes sense to expect continued income for doing so.

        I'll have the team here check this out regardless and see if it's something we want to consider using.

          Not only maintaining the product but also hosting your files. In addition they provide you a way to distribute your sketch files for windows users aswell. Speaking of which, how are the current plans for the windows version?

    I don't understand the generated CSS guideline with variables. Does anyone know how that works?

    :root { --charcoal-grey: #3e464e --cool-grey: #a8b1b9 --silver: #c9cccf --battleship-grey: #717d86 }

    It makes sense for the LESS/Sass/Stylus ones with proper vars, but I never saw this syntax for plain CSS?
