Features

Lunacy is a native Windows app that works offline and supports .sketch files. We mean it; it’s not JavaScript wrapped into Electron. Therefore, our setup file is only 15 Mb. It’s fast and takes only 200 Mb of memory for a typical project.

Sketch Compatibility

Lunacy is compatible with .sketch format. More specifically, you can:

Read .sketch Files of any Version

This is important, as Sketch completely changed the format in version 43, and kept migrating it to the new format until version 50.

  • If you’ve downloaded an old UI kit from Sketchappsources, Lunacy will be able to read it.

  • If you have a file sent by your teammate that uses the latest version of Sketch, Lunacy will be able read to it.

  • If Sketch changes the format again, we’ll update Lunacy accordingly. We are members of the so called “Friends of Sketch” group, and we get the early builds so that we can fix it before the release.

  • We also work on reading the slightly broken files generated by PSD to Sketch Converter (they have non-unique IDs).

Save .sketch Files

We save the files in .sketch format while preserving the original structure: naming, groups, and IDs.

As of version 3.7, Lunacy doesn’t fully support the symbols. We save the symbols as generic groups, meaning that your designs will look the same, but updating a symbol won’t affect its instances.

Tools, Objects, and Properties

We cover all the data structures of Sketch, including masks, gradients, rounded corners, curves, sophisticated text formatting and many more.
