327: Organizing Component Systems

December 18, 2019 at 2:58pm
In this week's episode, we follow up on a bunch of your tweets, and then we get super semantic about naming conventions and component organization. And as always, we share a couple cool things like a vehicle upgrade and a feed reader.

Follow-up:

Industry Talk:

We get deep in the weeds talking about naming conventions and component organization for your design files.

Cool Things:

  • Marshall shared an after-market CarPlay setup that has made his commuting experience all the better. Check out the top-rated CarPlay stereos on Wirecutter.
  • Brian shared NetNewsWire, a free and open-source RSS reader for the Mac. Brian also gathered a bunch of self-hosted blogs that you can check out on the Twitters.
BUH-BYEEEEE!

Hey a few thoughts about organizing libraries when using several for several platforms/themes: I actually keep those in different libraries, with the same naming scheme, and then switch them out using the Camilo plugin, which replaces styles, text styles and symbols between libraries.
