Tokens 2.0 is our next step towards a future with a much more powerful and flexible design tokens system. You are able to fully edit how your tokens are setup and which styles are included. You can also create completely custom tokens that are currently not supported by design tools.

We've designed Tokens 2.0 with Style Dictionary in mind.

Style Dictionary is a powerful build system specifically designed for transforming tokens into whatever shape and form you require. With it you can export your design tokens into any format you need.


Adding tokens

1) You can add tokens to your styleguide from the toolbar.

3) Once you've added the styles, new tokens will be created which are directly linked with the styles from your design files. Whenever you update the styles in your design app, these changes will be reflected in the tokens.
