Our free desktop app does many amazing things that you will enjoy while developing from within Sketch with our framework.

Sketch2React Code App features

  • Hot Reload - Every time you save in Sketch it automatically reloads that file in our code app
  • Offline Mode - Everything that does not require an internet connection in your design file will work offline
  • Mobile View = Opens up another responsive window of your design with the start width of 576px

  • Use CSS plugins
  • Handy shortcuts to our documentation & tutorials (requires internet connection to work)

How to use

  1. Go to File--->Open (⌘O)
  2. Open up the .sketchfile you are working on
  3. That same file is now linked with our Code App
  4. Happy makings!

How to download HTML5

Why can't I install your code app?

All Mac apps that are not certified by Apple that you download from the web or distribute privately (via your own channels) give you a warning the very first time you open them.

Just chill and do like below and happiness will (maybe) come to you.

  1. Go to System Preferences
  2. Click on Security & Privacy
  3. It will contain a message that says "Sketch2React Code App was blocked from opening because it is not from an identified developer"
  4. Click on Open Anyway

You been good, now go celebrate this with a great cup of the very best company coffee you can find ☕
