I think you didn’t get the article. It’s not like I invented this thing, I even emphasized that this approach is nothing new under the sun.
It’s about sharing my design workflow, how I try to be more organized in Sketch. I would like to have more power over my visual hierarchy, as programmers do, but Sketch doesn’t support this approach a lot. That’s why I suggested an idea of node-based visual styles editor. As far as I know, there is nothing like that available. The other idea is thinking not only about atoms and molecules (or whatever you call it), but also about the variables, that the objects are made from.
This article is mainly for designers, because I see a great gap betweeen designers’ and programmers’ world, which I would like to close. And using Zeppelin or Avocode doesn’t make you more organized. Changing state of a mind and applying before-mentioned principles in your workflow does it.
