Bind

Bind is an open source, experimental tool for designing interfaces. It's a native OSX app that allows you to design using GSS, an auto-layout like language for describing an interface via constraints. Bind is not meant to replace tools like Sketch, Photoshop or Framer, but is instead suited for the niche task of laying out user interfaces. For more background info, see the blog post I wrote about it.

Download for OSX from the Releases page
