I've gotten our InVision administrator to get the Design System Manager set up and I'm currently exploring how I can transfer our UI Kit that lives in a Sketch Library to the DSM.
I was meticulous in creating the Sketch Library when it comes to naming things, using a folder structure to keep it organized:
Ex: 1. Components/Buttons/Primary Button 1. Components/Text Field/Text Field - Active 1. Components/Icons/Menu/Menu - Link
When I import these components into the DSM, the naming convention is retained and it's not easy to look at the list and see the name (ex: /Primary Button) because the full name does not display.
So I'm thinking through two options, and I'm curious if anyone has some thoughts on this.
Rename all components after they are imported into the DSM, and remove the folder structure from the name (ex: remove "1. Components/Buttons/"). My concern here is that doing this would break the connection to that symbol in Sketch, since the names would be different.
Rename all components in Sketch, kill the folder structure, and organize everything once it's in the DSM using folders and subfolders.
Any thoughts on this? Anyone else encountering similar problems and trying to find the best way to get a DSM up and running?
