Lona

A collection of tools from the developers and designers at Airbnb for building design systems and using them to generate cross-platform UI code, Sketch files, images, and other artifacts. Lona starts with a collection of JSON files that are used to define a design system including components, colours, text styles, gradients, shadows, and data type. The first tool is Lona Studio which provides a graphical interface for working with these JSON files. The second is Lona Compiler which converts the files to UI code for various targets. Currently only React Native is supported, but more platforms are planned.
