That's so nice of you, thanks!
That's nice to hear, thanks!
Thanks! Yep, similar idea but it would just use DevTools instead of a custom editing interface. And yes, editing HTML & text too, not just CSS like most of the extensions I've seen.
Yes, source maps. I only have a proof of concept so I haven't nailed down all the details yet, but I do have a working version with edits to a scss file.
As for variables, I'm not sure yet. The devtools elements panel is not aware of variables, but the sources panel is. This is partially just dependent on how the browser handles things.
Overall, this is not meant to be a tool you'd be using to commit directly to a production repo—it's more for prototyping out the code to get a design direction in place—but obviously being able to edit variables would be amazing!
Hmm, I'll do some thinking on that. Thanks for the input, I appreciate it!
Thanks! And me too, lol.
What do you mean by full on? Design style too over the top / text unclear?
Thanks! There are so many ways I'd use this. For example, I have a design project right now where a dev team is building my designs in .NET, which I know nothing about. I want this so I can collaborate with them on top of the staging site without having to learn how to install and compile .NET. ;)
Design systems aren't replacing design jobs. They're actually causing a bubble of design jobs because they take more work to maintain.
Thanks! I think it’s important to share stories like this because we tend to assume it’s easy for everyone else.
