Sunsetting Avocode. Free version of Inspect coming soon.

Vu Hoang AnhVu Hoang Anh

The Avocode product, as you know it today, is going away at the end of 2022. We’re doubling down our focus on pursuing our mission to unlock design for everyone.

Ceros, a no-code content creation platform for interactive design, acquired Avocode in October 2021. Not only do we share the same mission with Ceros, but our company values and culture are almost identical. That’s why we’re confident we can create new revolutionary products for the community while offering a smooth transition for our existing customers.

Sneak peak: we're already working on bringing a free Inspect tool to the community.

Read more about this change, what’s next, and an exiting collection of Avotars NFTs coming soon.

Avocode Story

It’s not easy for us to say goodbye. Over the past several years, together with our users, we’ve transformed the design-to-code space.

When we started, there was no easy way for designers to hand-off their work to their fellow developers. Developers had no way to quickly and accurately inspect designs and extract all assets. Avocode was the first tool to solve this common problem.

But how? To offer our unique solution, we had to first create a way to unlock the design process. We needed to develop a way for everyone to access design files, no matter the design tool or operating system.

And we did it. We invented a universal design format called Octopus, a custom Monroe rendering engine, and built Avocode on top of it. Suddenly, anyone could open designs without having the right design tool or OS.

And we went even further by adding collaboration and copy editing features, versioning, and prototype viewing.

This was a massive shift in the industry, and everyone followed us. Today, handoff is not just a word but a core feature in every design tool. We pioneered this movement, and as far as we can see, Avocode alternatives still have a long way to go before they can provide their users with the same quality experience 🥺

What’s next?

Avocode product will sunset at the end of 2022. But the Open Design technology that powers Avocode will live on and prosper. Together with Ceros we will create an entire ecosystem of new exciting tools.

We’re already working on bringing Inspect to market - a stand-alone free tool that will enable its users to generate code and export design assets. This means, existing Avocode customers will still be able to hand-off and inspect designs on preferred terms.

Of course, we will not stop there. We have an exciting roadmap ahead of us, but we’ll keep it secret for now until a big announcement later this year. If you follow the space - you won’t miss it.

Avotars NFTs

Over the years, Avocode users formed a strong community. We want everyone to keep a piece of Avocode after its sunset date.

That's why we will soon be presenting a unique collection of NFT Avotars. The loyal users of Avocode will receive an early access to this exciting opportunity.
