Sketch helps you go from design to CSS

A video of the Sketch 2.0 beta, an OS X app by Bohemian Coding, is in the wild, showcasing some new features that seem to pitch it more as a tool of interest to web designers. New inspector options enable vector shapes to be given property values akin to those in CSS, and any shape can be selected and its CSS exported, potentially speeding up UI design.

The app's developer, Pieter Omvlee, told .net: "There's still not a real design-focussed app for web and UI designers. For years, most designers have used what's basically photography software to do their work, and we hope to give them something that's better suited to the job." Highlights of the beta include high-quality text rendering, easily applied rounded corners, multiple fills, text styles, a 960 grid and the aforementioned CSS export.
