Importing from Sketch


To start importing from Sketch, you need the macOS app and the Sketch plugin which can be downloaded from here. Then:

  • Install the Sketch plugin found in the plugin directory from the downloaded zip.​

  • Install the app found in the app/ directory. Just drag & drop it into your Applications directory.

  • Open the Airbeam app, select the artboards you want to export, then select Export Selected option from the plugins -> airbeam menu (or press cmd + shift + x ).

  • From Airbeam app select the project you want to sync with, or press the Sync to New Project  button if you want to create a new one.

Why do I need the macOS app?

The Airbeam macOS app is only required to import designs from Sketch. It works along with the Airbeam Sketch plugin.​

Developers are not required to download the macOS app. They can use the Airbeam web app at: https://app.airbeam.io.
