Indigo.Design App Builder October Release with Assets Support

Zdravko Kolev / Tuesday, October 26, 2021

The October update of Indigo.Design App Builder is here and includes some significant updates. Over the last few months, we have upgraded App Builder with a variety of components and capabilities that can assist you in accelerating your app development. This month we release two great features that can ease your building process when it comes to using images and uploading a Sketch file right from your Sketch application.

The October Release brings the following features.

Assets Support and Storage

We now expose a way to upload your images to Assets library and share it across all apps in the same Workspace. Assets are one of the submenus in the toolbox, from where you can easily add and manage them.

Download uploaded images used in the app when you publish or download app source code.

In the assets menu, you are able to:

  • See all images coming from the parsed apps (like from Sketch)
  • Drag and drop assets into the assets panel
  • Be notified about assets that are currently in use and whether you want to replace them
  • Set a background image by specifying it from the Assets panel or with a URL 

Assets support example

Keep in mind that there are some limits when it comes to asset size and dimensions uploading - file size up to 5 megabytes and dimensions up to 4k, 16 megapixels.

Create App from Sketch Story

This new feature allow users to upload a Sketch file to the Indigo.Cloud from their Sketch application. After the Sketch file is uploaded, you will be prompted with a URL to the actual application and you can further update it though App Builder itself.


  • Include REST endpoint URL in the generated app instead of hard-coded JSON data - Youtube explanation.

  • Extract images available in your Sketch file and add it to the Workspace assets library.
  • Added context menu for Document outline elements.
  • Show outermost container (View) as the root-level element in the Document outline.
  • Added tooltips explanations for Image fit and Layout position options.
