Came across the plugin through Sketch Repo. Neither the description nor the site is very helpful in conveying how & why this would be useful for a designer/developer.
EDIT - Some context from the maker
Having some screenshots of the product helps! I didn't see one until I hit download~
SVA is supposed to have a good Interaction Design program
Thanks a lot Pablo. Why not share through Sketch Cloud? Wouldn't sharing updated be more easier that way?
Also missing is the 'Obligatory Sketch update' posts
My main project file (500+ artboards) has been on Plant since the 1st beta. Performance has generally been good. Since it's just a plugin within Sketch, there haven't been any slowdowns w.r.t performance.
My org is evaluating Abstract & I'm really loving the branching & collaboration features. Haven't really noticed slowdown yet but Sketch did crash a few times.
We also tried Kactus but the JSON garbage it threw up on our 1000+ sketch files took ages to clean up. Also, the main reason we wanted to work with Kactus was it support for Gitlab (which we run & maintain in-house) but Kactus wouldn't work unless you also buy the Github Enterprise Plan.
We also tried out Folio for Mac. Had two big advantages
The app is pretty good but have to keep switch to it to perform any actions rather than being able to trigger it from within Sketch/PS/AI. Previews are rendered using the native mac interface, don't think it takes advantage of Sketch's JSON file format for rendering individual artboards. Collaboration & conflict resolution is not possible with Folio
Obligatory Safe to upgrade or not comment.
There's also Plantapp. Been testing it in private beta & its pretty simple & good.
You could also give (https://www.pinterest.com/timoa) a shot!
