About Zeplin

Zeplin is a cloud-based and on-premise collaboration software designed to help enterprises design websites and applications, share ideas and organize projects across teams using digital workspaces. The platform enables developers to export designs data from a variety of applications including Adobe Photoshop, Sketch and Figma.

Zeplin lets designers create global styleguides, which allows users to organize, share, modify and store designs files, text styles, codes and more in a centralized repository for future reference. Features include drag-and-drop capabilities, version tracking, data archiving, notifications and documentation management. Additionally, the role-based access enables specific members to create, edit or view content, designs and codes.

Zeplin is a must for software teams with UX/UI and development.

Looooooove it! Zeplin is great for large or small teams. The designers can focus on design, and the developers can focus on developing without working if something follows the style guide... because it does with Zeplin.

Pros

Zeplin makes is incredibly easy to hand off design items (mockups, prototypes, completed designs, etc.) to the development team.

Cons

None. I love Zeplin. I've used it at two companies and it's greatly improved the process between design and development.

Good product that could be even better

Pros

- Ability to upload designs really easily for design/dev handover. Love the snippets of code our devs get directly from Zeplin - Ability to comment directly on the screens - Love the slack integration

Cons

- Different colors might have similar names from one project to another if you don't have a global styleguide (which has messed the colors in our product in some areas) - Global styleguides are extremely buggy -- it's very hard to replace/move/rename colors once you've imported colors from a project. - There is no functionality to see how the flow of the design work (you have to manually annotate in a comment where each button/link brings you to) so we need to rely on prototypes or other flow chart tools to explain that to devs - No way to communicate animations

Zeplin review

Pros

Using the software as a mobile front end developer, our designer uses this software to pass designs to frontend developers. It is easy to find out the correct layout specs. Best feature is the option to copy the xml from the android design.

Cons

easy to use product, no really negative feedback.

Simple Easy Dev Handoff

Pros

I've been using Zeplin for nearly 3 years now, and the best thing about Zeplin is that its reliable and easy to setup. It has no fancy gimmiks which other tools in the same category do have but simply because it robust it is my choice.

Cons

Too many software updates. Each and every time I open Zeplin there is a software update pending. I wish Zeplin could solve the dev handoff problem end to end by use of design tokens and better design system documentation, and become that single source of truth for designers and developers.

Great for developers w/o Photoshop

Helped us get a new build from design to live quickly!

Pros

Easy to find needed styles by searching the comps. Ability to add comments for clarity was very helpful during development stage.

Cons

Seems to crash if left open too long. Sizes and font weights don't always seem to translate correctly from the design to web.
