    Typically when you open the door for third party developers to create plugins or enhancements, it leads to a better app in the long run. The ability to bend the app to your will through plugins and scripting is a hugely powerful tool.

    I think you're looking at it the wrong way. Scripting can become a method of deep customization. Take a peek at Sketch's release history. It's busy, even though as it matures things don't change as rapidly. But look, they just added some constraint type features and they're refining those in the next release.

    Plugin developers can pretty much just whip something up, test that it works for themselves, and put it out there. Releasing new features as the app developer requires more effort and time, as the goal is to release a solid piece of software.
