Kactus is a tool to bring proper version control (as in git) to designers (only sketch users for now, but we need to start somewhere, right?).

This new tool is on the next level:

  • it brings the entire git flow to sketch: branches, pull requests, team collaboration (you can work on the same file and automatically merge the changes), etc
  • you can share pages across multiple sketch files
  • you can publish pages on the internet and import them in another project (soon)!

:cactus: The issue I reported isn’t fixed yet. What can I do?

If nobody has responded to your issue in a few days, you’re welcome to respond to it with a friendly ping in the issue. Please do not respond more than a second time if nobody has responded. The Kactus maintainers are constrained in time and resources, and diagnosing individual configurations can be difficult and time consuming. While we’ll try to at least get you pointed in the right direction, we can’t guarantee we’ll be able to dig too deeply into any one person’s issue.
