Designer-to-developer handoff, streamlined


Move projects from design to development faster and more efficiently.

Remove the guesswork

Bridge the communication gap between design and development with an intuitive, Git-inspired workflow.

Save time coding up-to-date designs

See design changes and get the most up-to-date redline measurements with version control.
Abstract’s commit log includes a “go to latest” button, keeps designs up to date
Abstract’s inspect feature shows measurements and CSS properties of a design

Know the context and designer intent

Commit history, comments, and annotations make it easy to interpret 'the why' behind design decisions.
A team member gives feedback on a specific design element with an annotated comment
A commit message allows designers to add context to every design decision

Copy code with a single click

Grab the values you need to implement designs on iOS, Android, React, Flutter, and Web.
Abstract’s inspect options panel supports multiple color formats for copying code

Save the back and forth

Collect focused feedback, easily compare changes, and export assets.

Three ways to compare changes

View design iterations with side-by-side and overlay comparisons, and structural diffing.
Side by side comparison view switches to overlay view for a closer look at every change in Abstract
The layer list in Abstract’s Inspect tool displays an icon on every layer that changed since the previous version

One less tool for exporting assets

Export JPGs, PNGs, SVGs, and other file types directly from the Abstract app.
Asset export options in Abstract‘s Inspect panel include JPGs, PNGs, and SVGs file types

Abstract allowed us to work around the clock with smooth handoffs to other timezones.

Minimize your toolkit

Manage your entire designer-to-developer handoff process in one collaboration tool.

No More Toggling Between Tools

Inspect designs, copy code, and download assets without installing software or opening yet another design tool.

DesignOps integration

Build off of our SDK to automate processes and integrate Abstract with the productivity and collaboration tools you already use.
