I wanted to give @penpotapp a try for my product team and self-host it, and I’m honestly amazed at what the team has done to make this platform accessible. Such a game changer for open source design. Viva, open source and Penpot!

Oh my gosh - I love it. The controls felt very intuitive to me - way more intuitive! They map nicely to the mental models of actual CSS. I LOVE the wrapping options as well. I also really appreciate how developer-friendly this is, so hand-off becomes simple!

Building a design tool on top of web & dev standards is super clever. @penpotapp Imagine autolayout behaving like css flexbox and no more design & dev back and forth. 🪄🤹 Using all these open standards. Chef💋
