    I'd highly recommend Webflow. In my earlier org, we used Webflow for almost everything. We used it design & build part of the internal ERP/HRMS/Project Mgmt system over a period of 3 months. It only took a couple of days to get acquainted with the controls. Once you setup your classes/components, you can build entire pages in a matter of hours.

    There are certain features that are lacking but you can always keep track of the wishlist to what's coming on the roadmap.

    I hope that they're able to push this in a [point] release. Having to wait for a major version is painful.

    Here is another conversation that they are indeed working on this functionality to be native to the platform

    How has Abstract's experience been working with Electron for the native desktop app? Will this mean that at some point in the future a Windows Version would be launched too?

    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~

    Thanks a lot Pablo. Why not share through Sketch Cloud? Wouldn't sharing updated be more easier that way?

  • Posted to Abstract vs Plant performance, Dec 29, 2017

    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

    • Worked with our in-house GitLab instance
    • Support for other file formats, mainly PSD & AI

    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
