  • Posted to Show DN: Quick import from Sketch -> Glint , in reply to Daniel Woelfel , Oct 02, 2014

    Working on it now - there are a few missing rendering features in Glint itself that need to be put in/polished, uploading images in a more efficient way, and then there's the issue of preventing Sketch from crashing so frequently. So a bit of work to do before we can demo a full exporter, but it's on its way!

    To be honest, it looks a little bit goofy, because I hadn't taken the time to fix the axis-inversion issues. I took care of it the next day though, so hopefully the videos should seem more understandable: http://bushidoinc.tumblr.com/post/98892916211/sketch-axis-fix-fixed-the-flipped-y-axis-problem

    As a friend I showed it to said, "It went from suck to awesome instantly." - guess I should have done it earlier!

    Wow, very nice - that's a very nice UI. Have you blogged at all about how you handle browser + native codebases, how you keep performance up, etc.? I'd love to hear about the challenges you've overcome while building it.

    Also, very impressed with it being open source, thank you!

    We're on the edge with native performance (constant 60fps is our goal) still, it's a very hard nut to crack in the browser. Switching to WebGL from SVG definitely gave us an advantage for being able to debug and optimize performance, but it means every feature becomes a long slog.

    Thanks for all the advice along the way as well! And as far as your face, well, you're the modern day Lenna

    No has mention that Instagram frontend is built (and started) Reactjs, which has been a fantastic tool for us. Facebook has also started to migrate large parts of their frontend over.

    Thanks Ale, both for the kind words and for all your help on the mailing list.

    The code is definitely a challenge as you know, in particular the CSS rules, but we'll figure it out bit by bit.

    We've had a blast developing prototype extensions for Sketch. Choosing cocoascript as the underlying scripting language and exposing the whole obj-c runtime (more or less) has made it really fast to build things that would have been a major headache in other programs.

    Also, it's a fantastically designed tool, the team was super nice (got to meet them at their wwdc meetup!), and they're very focused. Cheers on the new release!
