Syncing one design library between Sketch and Figma?

over 4 years ago from , Principal Product Designer

Does anyone have any experience syncing a design system between Sketch and Figma?

I am trying to build one design library that's shared between two design teams that use Sketch and Figma each exclusively. We are planning to use Abstract as the single-source-of-truth for versioning and file management.

I'm a long time reader, first time poster. Thanks for your answers!

    I've never done it before, but if I were to do it, I'd make Figma my single source of truth & perhaps write a sketch plugin to sync figma's library to sketch's. Doing it the other way around (using Abstract like you suggested) would be much more tedious, because as far as I know there's no way to programmatically update Figma library, meaning you'd have to sync to Figma manually
