    I pressed the refresh button at least 50 times, laughed 14 times, and took 15 screenshots. Well done.

    Tacking onto this, one thing we've just started to do is use Wake throughout the day to share in progress design. The thinking is that by sharing design, everyone on the team will be more grounded in how the design is evolving and if they end up needing to work on that project, they'll come in with some knowledge. Before, each person on our team was kind of in a silo, unfortunately.

    In any case, anyone else have experience with Wake? It seems dormant so I worry that it isn't a long term solution. Are there better tools for design teams to easily share in progress design directly from Sketch. That workflow is crucial to adoption...

    Definitely a good point. I guess I wasn't super clear about my primary goal in my post. The biggest issue I've been running into is that our design team has went from just myself to me + two other designers that I manage. When switching between projects, we're all having difficulty knowing which plugins were used, if there is some kind of standardization in file naming and grouping practices, if there is a grid and when is it okay to deviate, etc.

    This wiki is excellent! Thanks for pointing it out to me.

    And yeah, the Deliveroo article isn't really covering the same topic. It was more trying to show that I did do some research and this is about as close as I found...

    Thanks for sharing. Definitely understand that without a killer tool that nails this problem, it'll vary a lot from team to team. Do you match developer preferences on files to expedite dev?

    No worries, that was definitely a useful post with some overlap. That Nathan Curtis post seems super useful and I definitely have been eyeing Abstract. The more people encourage it, the easier it might be to convince everyone else. I just wonder how easy or effective it will be trying to convince other designers on my team to make commits and pushes, etc.

    I haven't yet had an opportunity to use it but Tapwater looks really nice and it seems to meet most of your needs.

    It's not exactly instant and there isn't an easy way to post comments and the like but if you store the library file in a shared drive (like Google or Dropbox), then you can use it with a team. We have a library saved in our Google Drive with folders for each client so that we can easily share and save screenshots and inspiration for product designs that we are working on.
