    This is great Sean. Purchased and giving it a try. I used an macOS app called Gradient for years as a quick way to play with colors. Catalina finally killed it, been looking for a replacement.

    We've been building it from scratch. Started with a blank page and just plopped html elements in it, super raw. I'm planning to write about the process more. There's so many pristine looking pattern libs out there these days it was a little overwhelming to start. So I just avoided all of them. It's worked really well for us. We just build it up as we go. It's a mostly manual process. We have a bit of JS in place to render the code snippets just so we don't have to repeat ourselves. It's been fun and useful even for our small two person team.

    Great question, thank you. We've been getting it a good amount since launch. The answer is "sorta". For initial launch, yes we have been US-focused and also focused on only a handful of cities. You can see this in the UI when choosing cities for a Profile or when searching for Profiles. Also in the Profile creation form there's the question about US-work eligibility.

    The reason we chose to focus on US cities right now was just a decision to help us get launched. We're a small team–two people–and know making Limbo international and doing it right, will take a good deal of effort.

    Having said all that it is possible to create Profiles today with non-US cities specified. And it's possible to search for non-US cities using the free-form text input. For example; https://www.limbo.io/profiles?q=toronto

    So, today, it's not built in to the UI fully, but it's also not impossible. Once we get traction with our current setup, we'll be able to put in the needed effort for international support.

    Ah, good feedback, thank you. One of my first post-launch tasks is to re-think that UI. Mostly to make it more skimmable. While I'm in there I'll work at a less jarring hover/focus state. Thanks again

    Hi friends, I'm the co-founder and Designer/Front-end Dev of Limbo. We just launched Wednesday, but have gotten great feedback so far. Our goal is to make the hiring process more fair and smoother for everyone involved.

    We've put a lot of work into the product in the last six months and have a lot more we'll do. A design-specific thing ya'll might enjoy is our pattern library https://www.limbo.io/about/patterns/ Even though we're a small team of two, having it in place and maintaining it has been a huge help for designing new UIs and keeping things consistent. I plan to write in more detail about it and our design process.

    The initial release of Day Player was up here a couple years ago. I did a rewrite of it for the updated Sketch Plugin setup. This post dives into some of the code behind the plugin and the release process.

    There are more powerful Sketch plugin these days that do the same thing, but this is my little side project, so I keep it going.

    I wonder if you could store the info by writing it to a text file in the plugin dir?

    You'd still need a way to identify the layer, maybe you'd have to add something like an id, "#button-1". You could use an alert to collect the values and then write them to maybe a stringified JSON object in a text file. Something like:

    '{ "#button-1": "[22, 10, 22, 10]" }'

    Writing to a text file would allow you to retrieve the info after closing and reopening the Sketch file.

    It might also be possible to use NSThread https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/Cocoa/Reference/Foundation/Classes/NSThread_Class/Reference/Reference.html to store the info? I've used that for storing values across multiple calls to plugins.

    Just spitballing a little. It's a great plugin.

    Absolutely! When I first realized you could make HTTP requests from plugins that's the first thing I started thinking about.

    I have a rough plugin that I built for a talk about plugins that takes an RSS feed–converted to a JSON object–and generates elements based off the data and a base post element.

    https://github.com/tylergaw/sketch-generate-posts

    I plan to do some more work on it to make it work directly with RSS instead of needing to convert to JSON and making it more flexible to the types of data that could come through.

    Exciting stuff.
