How to create together ?
The purpose of this shared library is to separate the creation of elements and the creation of user interfaces.
The library is used as a Sketch Library which once loaded can be used in any new sketch document.
To synchronise this shared library with all team members we use Plant App.
As for the rest of the design system everything is based on Atomic Design.
Libraries allow easy access to Symbols across documents, but those Symbols can be updated from the Library so your designs are always up-to-date.
A Library is just an ordinary Sketch document that contains Symbols which you can then use in any other Sketch document. If you update any of those Symbols in your Library file, documents containing instances of those Symbols will receive a notification telling you that they can be updated. Here you can preview, check, and confirm changes — and by doing so, you can always ensure your documents are using the up-to-date copies of those components.
Plant app is a version control tool made for sketch. We can sync our common library and always work with up-to-date version of components. Plant app work like git, you can push and pull modifications and resolve conflict.
