Style Inventory for Sketch

Design requires free, sometimes chaotic exploration. But design also means organisation and structure. Sketch can be good in both aspects, but moving from exploration to structured layouts with text styles and unified colors is hard. Either you start clean files from scratch, or you use what you have and try to tidy it up. The Style Inventory is meant to help you with that. It gives you an overview of all your used styles and helps you to merge styles of similar layers into one.

Installation

To install all plugins, download them all first, unzip the archive, and place the folder contents in your Sketch Plugins folder by navigating to Sketch > Plugins > Reveal Plugins Folder…

To install only a selection of plugins, you will first need to place the library file inventory.js in the root of your Sketch Plugins directory. This is very important as all plugins rely on its functionality.

You can then install selected plugins by double-clicking the file, or alternatively, drag and drop the file onto the Sketch app icon. This will automatically copy the plugin to your Sketch Plugins folder.

Keyboard Shortcuts

Most plugins have a pre-defined keyboard shortcut. You can always change it by editing the shortcut written in parenthesis at the end of the first line of a plugin.

For example, the first line of Duplicate Artboard.sketchplugin:

// Duplicates the current artboard right next to it. (shift command d)

You can use modifier keys such as option, command, control, shift

Generate

This command can generate artboards that collect all colors, text styles and symbols of a document. Choose what you want to generate in the configurator. The artboards will be generated on a new page called "Style Inventory".

Shortcut: ctrl + + + I
