Your Sketch library is not a design system(

    Does anyone actually believe we will achieve the "holy grail" of design to code perfection?

    I have enormous respect for what AirBnB are doing with React/Sketch interplay, but I simply don't see it turning into something you would ACTUALLY put into production code without incredibly strict guidelines on how Sketch designs are created.

    Is having a Sketch component library and an HTML/CSS component library that are two parts of a greater whole really so bad?

      I think about this a lot. I've been impressed with the tech, but I'm weary about the overhead. Us designers make a lot of concessions and considerations when building these systems out, but I wonder if front-end developers really want this. There's a line of collaboration here but I'm not exactly sure where the overlap really is.
