Our components 💎
Combine these to create your own, it's a bit like having Lego pieces to play with. Save as Sketch Symbols and reuse locally or share with anyone in your team.

Grid & Layout Components

These are for setting up grids and layouts in Sketch. You create all of them in Sketch by creating Groups (⌘G) and renaming the groups accordingly.

{container}

Example of a {container} element
1
{container}
Copied!
Creates a Bootstrap Container element. This is the outermost element in a Bootstrap grid.
Note: You can also have {container} elements inside of {col} elements (known as nesting).
Supports:
  • classes [ ]
  • Backgrounds {BG}
Since: v0.0.5

How to add in Sketch:

  1. 1.
    Create a text node (T)
  2. 2.
    Group that text node (⌘+G)
  3. 3.
    Rename group {container}
  4. 4.
    Delete text node or name it {text}

{container-fluid}

Example of a {container-fluid} element
1
{container-fluid}
Copied!
Creates a Bootstrap Container-fluid element. This element (as opposed to {container}) always covers 100% of the available width (screensize or, if nested, the width of the parent {col} element)

Supports:

  • classes [ ]
  • Backgrounds {BG}
Since: v0.0.5

How to add in Sketch:

  1. 1.
    Create a text node (T)
  2. 2.
    Group that text node (⌘+G)
  3. 3.
    Rename group {container-fluid}
  4. 4.
    Delete text node or name it {text}

{row}

1
{row}
Copied!
Creates a Bootstrap Row element. A {row} is a direct child to {container} or {container-fluid}. This element's height is always at least as high as the corresponding element in the Sketch document.

Supports:

  • classes [ ]
  • Backgrounds {BG}

Pro tip!

By adding the Bootstrap 4 class no-gutters you will remove gutters from child {col}.
Example:

{row} [no-gutters]

Since: v0.0.5

How to add in Sketch:

  1. 1.
    Create a text node (T)
  2. 2.
    Group that text node (⌘+G)
  3. 3.
    Rename group {row}
  4. 4.
    Delete text node or name it {text}

{col}

1
{col}
Copied!
Creates a Bootstrap Column element. A {col} is a direct child to {row}. {col} can contain {container} or {container-fluid} elements (Known as nesting). It is within this element you place all your content.
Supports:
  • classes [ ]
  • Backgrounds {BG}
Since: v0.0.5

How to add in Sketch:

  1. 1.
    Create a text node (T)
  2. 2.
    Group that text node (⌘+G)
  3. 3.
    Rename group {col}
  4. 4.
    Delete text node or name it {text}

{group}

{group}
This is a structural component used as a helper to align it’s child-elements (vertically or horizontally). It supports classes, but not Sketch-styling.

Horizontally:

If you, within a {group} place X number of Sketch2React elements next to each other horizontally, {group} will make sure they end up horizontally in code. They will also be automatically centered vertically.
The remaining space (the difference/delta between the child-elements total width and the {group}’s own width) will be distributed evenly between the children.

Vertically:

If you, within a {group} place X number of Sketch2React elements stacked vertically in Sketch, {group} will make sure they end up vertically in code.
The remaining space (the difference/delta between the child-elements total height and the {group}’s own height) will be distributed evenly between the children.
Supports:
  • classes [ ]
Since: v0.6.0

{group-fixed}

{group-fixed}
This element is identical to {group} except that it always keeps the same width (taken from Sketch) even when you resize it’s parent component (e.g. a {col}).
Note! {group-fixed} is never wider that the size of it's parent element.
Supports:
  • classes [ ]
Since: v0.6.0

{div}

A generic component well suited for implementing things such as other grid systems (e.g. MaterialUI grid) or construct your own components!
Since: 1.6.4 pre-release

Basic Components

These are for common design tasks such as texts, images & backgrounds. You create all of them in Sketch by using the Shape Tools. Images you import.

{text}

1
{text}
Copied!
The text-layers created in Sketch needs to be named {text} in order for the code app to find them and parse them properly. By default {text} generates an HTML paragraph tag.
You can set which kind of HTML element should be created by specifying e.g. {text.span}. Available types are:
{text.p} (same as default {text}) - This creates an HTML paragraph tag
1
{text.p}
Copied!
{text.span} - This creates an HTML span tag
1
{text.span}
Copied!
Supports: Text styles

{image}

1
{image}
Copied!
Creates an image with a responsive size. It scales according to available width.
Supports:
  • classes [ ]
Since: v0.0.5
ProTip! Make sure to export/reimport your assets at the @2x resolution so that you don't get fuzzy edges on retina resolution screens.

{image-fixed}

1
{image-fixed}
Copied!
Creates an image with fixed width and height (taken from Sketch).

  • classes [ ]
Since: v0.0.5

{rectangle}

The {rectangle} component is perfect for quick wireframing
1
{rectangle}
Copied!
Creates a HTML-div element that is 100% of it's parent elements height and 100% width of it's parent element. This element's height is always at least as high as the corresponding element in the Sketch document.
By adding the Bootstrap class [rounded-circle] to the {rectangle} you'll get a rounded circle.
1
{rectangle} [rounded-circle]
Copied!
This is a Sketch "Rectangle"-Shape

{BG}

1
{BG}

Fluid fonts

Pro tip! By adding the class js-font-fluid-12 you will have fluid font-size. The last part (12) refers to the number of px the font will span between. This is also dependent of the artboard size.

First example

  • You have a mobile-size artboard (576px wide).
  • You have a {text} with font-size 18px.
  • You have a {text} with the class js-font-fluid-10
1
{text} [js-font-fluid-10]
Copied!
The font-size will then flow between 18px at the smallest screen-size and 28px at the largest screen-size.

Second example

  • You have a desktop-size artboard (>576px wide).
  • You have a {text} with front-size 18px.
  • You have a {text} with the class js-font-fluid-12
1
{text} [js-font-fluid-12]
Copied!
The font-size will then flow between 6px at the smallest screen-size and 18px at the largest screen-size.
Supports:
  • classes [ ]
Since: v0.0.5
Updates: v0.0.55 - Fluid font support
