over 2 years ago from , Design Product Marketing @ Adobe

Note: For those of you adding questions or comments after 2pm PST, we will respond during the following workday (most of our team is based in San Francisco). Thanks and have a good day or night!

Hello everyone,

Happy New Year! This is Mike again from the Adobe XD team. I’m excited to join you with my colleagues from the CC Developer Experience team. Kerri, Ash, Drew, Erin, and Steve to chat about XD plugins and integrations. We had a nice chat a few months ago about XD plugins so we thought we would kick-off the new year with another AMA to answer any questions you may have about XD plugins and integrations.

Last week, the CC Developer Experience team announced XD-Awesome, a place to find community-created content that can help you build your own XD plugin. XD-Awesome is a one-stop shop for cool open source plugins, helper libraries, utilities, tutorials, and more.

Our team is here from now to 2pm PST to chat and answer questions.


Mike, Kerri, Ash, Drew, Erin, and Steve

    The only reason I am not shifting to XD from Figma cause of Design System, I understand as a designer, different designers have their own use cases and goals in Design platform but if y'll were to create a platform where every use case of Designer can do everything which I am assuming is your main goal of XD then please focus on DS as well. I recently shifted from Sketch to Figma cause of DS and I did look on XD few weeks back where capability of creating DS wasn't matured on XD.

        It is a natural development of our industry. We've moved from designing landing pages and small stuff to creating systems that are able to scale with the product and company. We should be happy that we are finally able to impact designs on such a scale.

          My point was completely different. I know it's been some time, but if you look at OP, he's jumping from a tool to tool just because of features.

          Design tools do not make Design Systems. Teams do...

      Hi Robin, We hear you loud and clear. DS support is a priority and we will continue to improve it over time. Currently we have Creative Cloud Libraries and we recently introduced Cloud docs in December. Stay tuned since there will be more to come.

    Speaking of XD-Awesome, Steve merged a pull request just now. It's a localization helper and a plugin boilerplate template.
