Collaboration and version control for sketch files. What are people using?

over 7 years ago from

What do people recommend for collaborating on sketch files? I want visual changelogs, revert to a specific version, commit messages etc. Basically git like features but design-centred. From what I can see the two main (only?) options are:

Anybody used either of these? What do you think? Are there other good options out there? Mac only is fine.

    Yo! Kactus does exactly this! It converts back and forth between sketch files and json-files (while still allowing to see the visual diffs) so you can use git and GitHub.

      Hi Josh, that would be great as having tried Folio for a while I found it wasn't really suitable and ended up just using git on the command line. I have signed up via the website (company: WegoWise). Thanks in advance!

    Try this out http://www.picnic.design. It's a plugin that allows multiple people in a single file and has the capability to share symbols and styles.

    I've used Folio for Mac. They have already updated to v2, continue to add features and is really solid.

      Oh cool, thanks for commenting. I think I'm leaning towards folio, the idea of having free viewers as well seems really handy. Surprised that there really isn't more competition in this space though considering there's a new prototyping app being released every week it seems.
