Need to extract React Native code without Sketch? Try Avocode

No need to buy or install Sketch. Open and export assets from layered Sketch designs on Mac, Windows, Linux or in the browser with Avocode.

Open your design and go to the Select Tool or hold V key. Then switch to the Code panel and make sure your code language is set to React Native.

When you click on any design layer, its styles will appear as React Native in the Code panel. Either click COPY ALL to export the whole code snippet or select particular lines or values and they will be copied to your clipboard.

To customize the code output, feel free define any value as a Variable, use Replacement rules to replace any part of the generated code. You can even reorder or hide specific code properties, change quote type and much more in Code settings.
