Ask DN: Sketch Mirror/Preview for Android?

    This Sketch plugin provides a preview command (?P) that will open a specially named slice in Skala Preview. The plugin works by exporting the first slice named Preview to Sketch's cache directory and opening that file in Skala Preview.

    And... that means you can use Skala Preview and Skala View for Android.

    I'd pay for that product :)

    You don’t have to, because Skala Preview is free. :D

      Thanks for the link. Unfortunately this doesn't work...(think if might only work on sketch 2.2.4) know of anything else?

        Without knowing how your file is set up I can't be for sure but I use a variety of artboards and was able to get this to work by iterating through artboards, not slices (line 40).

        This is my first foray into Sketch scripting so I need to dig into this a bit more. Ideally, for me, it would preview the current artboard but I'm not sure that's available in the API.

        Fun stuff - glad I came across this.

        EDIT: It was actually pretty trivial to get my current art board previewed. I'm going to fork this project and get to work.

        FORKED: This version will simply preview the currently selected artboard and was tested against the latest Sketch and Skala apps.
