Installation

In order to make use of Asphalt in the most efficient way, we at GO-JEK use some tools and procedures. Follow the below listed steps in order to achieve best results.

Getting the right tools

Using the right tools will help achieve the best results with least effort. We recommend the designers to follow the following steps to get started, in order to get the best output from Asphalt.

STEP 1 - Gather your tools

Considering their flexibility and efficiency, we use the following tools to design and manage our file. We recommend you to download and use them as well. It goes in the following order -

  • Sketch - For designing
  • Abstract - For version control and sharing files with other designer
  • Runner - A plugin for Sketch which allows you to search for and insert library components in your designs

STEP 2 - Start creating

Now that you have all the necessary tools and libraries at your disposal, all you have to do is create a new project in Abstract. This creates a new Sketch file as the master file. Once you have a master file, anyone can pull branches from it, and merge their changes to the master. This lets multiple designers to work on the same project at the same time, without creating a mess.
