    Up late enough to catch a deploy in the wild. Really great changes here! Congrats to the sketchrunner team!

    I had a similar post a few months back.

    Definitely some helpful suggestions there. I did a lot of research and analysis of options for us.

    Ultimately I decided to create a repo in our company Gitlab instance and maintain a wiki there. Easy to manage, developers are comfortable with it already, didn't require another tool or account, free, and while not the sexiest new thing, it works for our crew. Here, I have things like recommended plugins, artboard layout and structure (with examples), naming conventions for layers, export and slicing best practices, and so on.

    As for versioning, we use Sketch and Abstract. Abstract has been truly wonderful to use, even with only one designer. I am still working out the details of applying semantic versioning to design files. I found Nathan Curtis' Medium post on the topic to be particularly useful. He dives into a few things you are mentioning regarding versioning.

    Edit: Doh. You literally suggested some of the products in the thread I posted earlier. I'm blaming this on Friday brain.

    I currently use ShareMouse and it works well enough for casual work/browsing. Not doing much gaming these days and a wired connection cuts any noticeable latency issues. The docked Mac is the host.

    Also tried Synergy but I've been able to get by on the free version of ShareMouse.

    Ha. I actually have my PC hooked up to it and I use a software KVM to swap between the two for casual work.

    Work: LG UIltrawide 34" 34UM95C-P LG UIltrawide 34" 34UM95C-P

    Home: Dual 30" ACD (old but still going strong) Dual ACD 30"

    While I like the dual displays, I'll probably just replace them with an updated single ultrawide.

    We're in the process of evaluating GatherContent: https://gathercontent.com/

    Our biggest trip up is handling changes and edits that are made in the middle of any given process (design or development). 10+ page google docs (in some cases) quickly become aggravating for everyone who needs to work on them.

    We're most intrigued by their API. Fingers crossed.

    DN conveniently cut out the rest of my comment. Delightful.

    Was going to add that I just found a neat little thing called Outline: https://github.com/outline/outline

    Looks interesting. Especially since they have SSO via Google or Slack and you can serve it up yourself. Time to bother my devs, hah.
