We’ve built a Sketch plugin for bringing Sketch assets into Axure RP. It’s definitely still in beta, but even in its current form offers a more efficient Sketch-to-Axure workflow than exporting from Sketch to SVG and then importing from there. If this sounds like your kind of thing, click the link below to download the plugin and get started:
Download Sketch-to-Axure plugin 0.9.6 (Ed note: updated 2/8/2019 to work with Sketch 53.)
Note: You will need build 3368 (or higher) of Axure RP to use this plugin. Click here to download and update to the latest build of Axure RP.
Here’s an animation showing the plugin in action:
Why did we build this? We’ve been using Sketch in the office, and wanted to experiment with their API to see what would be possible for streamlining the workflow. We wanted something more efficient and also more accurate, and this plugin accomplishes both of those goals (though accuracy still isn’t perfect).
We’ve also collected various requests over the past few months for a Sketch plugin—but I want to make clear before y’all dive in, just to manage expectations here, that this plugin in its current form will not satisfy all of those requests. Basically what you see in the above animation is what you get: you can copy a selection (or all artboards) out of the Sketch UI and then paste it into Axure RP as individual widgets. (Once you’ve installed the plugin, use the “Plugins > Axure RP” menu in Sketch to access these options.) This plugin does not currently allow for round-tripping, syncing, cross-app library support, etc. We’re not yet sure what features we’ll take on, but we’re continuing to evaluate.
If you’re a fan of both Sketch and Axure and you’ve been looking for a more streamlined workflow, we hope you’ll find this plugin useful! Please share your thoughts.
