Or, Co-Founder of Anima here, thanks for posting us.
We believe that making powerful design concepts accessible to designers is key to advance the design ecosystem.
Flexbox has changed the game and although it's been around a few years, to use it you need to use CSS in a browser and therefore inaccessible to many designers.
Stacks is a very simple and intuitive version of Flexbox while powerful just the same. It enables designers to think and design in terms of Columns, Rows, and Grids - making designs more consistent.
We'd love to get your feedback about it!
Before using this on a production file, I'm curious what happens when you open a file that has Stacks applied in a version of Sketch that does not have the plugin?
The file will simply not be responsive.
Plugin data is stored in a secluded section of the file. That's how Sketch's plugin system works.
If the plugin is not installed then there is no code that uses that data and so nothing happens.
Stacks are awesome and I'm pretty excited about them, considering I've been waiting for this in the Make Grid tool for ages =]
So pumped about it that I just put together a short little video about how I use auto-layout in my designs to make them more quickly and accurately. Use Anima's Auto-Layout to be More Effective
I'm seriously loving this today.
Yours has become the best plugin for Sketch, followed closely by Runner. Great job!
very recommended plugin. keep evolving it guys
This, I like.
Cool! Might be worth correcting:
For the very first time, Sketch app users are able to apply Flexbox technology directly in Sketch.
