render React components to Sketch; tailor-made for design systems

Quick-start 🏃‍

First, make sure you have installed Sketch version 50+, & a recent npm.

Open a new Sketch file, then in a terminal:

git clone https://github.com/airbnb/react-sketchapp.git
cd react-sketchapp/examples/basic-setup && npm install

npm run render

Next, check out some more examples!

npm Sketch.app Travis

Why?!

Managing the assets of design systems in Sketch is complex, error-prone and time consuming. Sketch is scriptable, but the API often changes. React provides the perfect wrapper to build reusable documents in a way already familiar to JavaScript developers.

What does the code look like?

import * as React from 'react';
import { render, Text, Artboard } from 'react-sketchapp';

const App = props => ( {props.message} );

export default context => { render(, context.document.currentPage()); };

What can I do with it?

  • Manage design systems—
    react-sketchapp
    was built for Airbnb’s design system; this is the easiest way to manage Sketch assets in a large design system
  • Use real components for designs— Implement your designs in code as React components and render them into Sketch
  • Design with real data— Designing with data is important but challenging;
    react-sketchapp
    makes it simple to fetch and incorporate real data into your Sketch files
  • Build new tools on top of Sketch— the easiest way to use Sketch as a canvas for custom design tooling

Found a novel use? We'd love to hear about it!
