    I am really interested - what is the value of this? Meaning, why would want to use bootstrap inside of sketch?

      Good questions, Thomas! Here are a few reasons why it's helpful

      If your developer is using Bootstrap:

      1. It helps bridge the gap between designer & developer, and helps them both be on the same page. If I as a designer know all the default assets my developer has at his disposal I can pull those into my design with confidence knowing that those are pretty much plug and play when things get to development

      2. If I've made edits & branding updates to bootsketch, I can simply share my design with the developer and he can see what colors / components were updated. From there he'll know exactly what needs to be changed within the bootstrap ecosystem.

      If your developer is NOT using Bootstrap

      Bootsketch still gives you a TON of design assets that help you put your mockup together very quickly.

      1. It gives you many standard components that'd you'd need to create regardless. (like buttons, forms, typography, linked color styles)
      2. It gives you artboards with all the major breakpoints with accurate grid spacing for different sized screens.
      3. And the best reason is that all of these components work really really well. I've tested them time and again to make sure they resize fluidly, and are easy to override or modify.

      Hope this helps!!!
