    I think most of this works...but that logo, sorry.

    Yeah so it seems the design community is as prone to the follies of tribalism as all the others, which is basically making the web insufferable.

    I barely wanted to write a comment at all, or ever, since it feels like just another CIS male with an opinion. This might be my last here. Things just feel gross.

    Funny, I just recently created a bunch of confusing regex so I could at least drill down by viewport, and thought that it would be nice if there was a guide to sort this stuff out properly for designers.

    It definitely appears to violate their material rules regarding "cards", which presumably means it's an entirely different system.

    And yet, whenever we encounter crashing or feature issues with Sketch, we're advised to just disable all of these plugins. I've whittled mine down to two (Craft Sync, Abstract) to help diagnose problems and have begun to learn to accept the manual way of doing things or just embrace other tools for those tasks.

    It's that or we as a community need to do a better job at financially supporting independent developers to keep things running smoothly.

    I too continue to be dubious about "all-in-one" solutions, so it was great to hear this concern aired despite feeling a bit alone in this regard.

    It's brilliant because it should inspire you to draw something better.

    Yup, what everyone else said. Keeping a wrapper leads to less issues in my experience.

    This is an exciting time, but also a frustrating one. Upgrading or changing a workflow or tool set isn't as easy as upgrading a car or a phone (to say nothing of corporate politics or large teams.)

    A lot of us I think are getting used to a diaspora of tool + tool + tool (for better or worse) while Invision looks to draw us in with an Adobe Design Suite alternative, which of course, we know the follies of such a software monopoly. Are we ready for that again?
