New Plugin - Symbols Manager

New Plugin - Symbols Manager

Sketch / PluginsOctober 19, 2017 · 10:15am · (Edited 10 months ago)
Hi there, I'm happy to share a side project with you. It's a plugin that helps organising your symbols in a fast and easy way. So no more hassle with long and complex symbols name, or renaming tons of symbols because you misspelled a folder name. I'm curious what you guys think about it.

Some feedback: Maybe create a collapsable panel that can be docked to the left or right side (like Craft Manager from Invision) so you can also drag and drop symbols to the page. Also, show linked libraries in this collapsible panel concept (I wouldn't edit and manage them like this, only in their source libraries)

Agree that using large symbol libraries in a file can cause things like this to not function. That said, with Sketch Libraries, hopefully this can be remediated with new or ongoing projects. And hopefully the plugin dev will include referenced Sketch Libraries in the next version

This plugin is awesome, my only complaint is, for some reason when I installed update, it installed 'another version' of it, so I have 2 versions of the plugin running at once now, will have to uninstall old version.

Sounds great! :) Just one question before purchasing: Does it work with Sketch Runner? Currently my symbols are named e.g. »button / primary / default«, which (in case I got it right) will be transferred into »default« only (lying in folder structure button > primary). I'm wondering if the insert option in Sketch Runner is compatible with that, so that I can search e.g. for »button« and it shows all symbols lying in the button folder?

Yes it will work with sketch runner and it's not going to change your naming stucture by default. It's really just an easy way to visualize and edit your symbol name.
