Over the past several months, the team has been collecting feedback from the community on the First Public Editor’s Draft. Based on that feedback and community support, we’re publishing the Second Editor’s Draft.
We invite everyone in the community to review this latest Editor’s Draft and join the conversation on GitHub as we finalize the remaining details towards publishing a Final Report.
For the first time, we also invite tool makers to start implementing the format with this milestone and share feedback with our team (GitHub preferred, or email email@example.com to discuss other ways to share privately).
Thanks to everyone in the community for your participation. We can’t wait to build the future of design tokens together!
Here is an overview of what has changed in this Second Editor’s Draft:
These breaking changes are the most significant updates in this second draft, and will be of most interest to tool makers who were already relying on the first public draft (such as the Figma Tokens plugin):
- All format properties are now prefixed with
$, as in:
fonttype has been renamed to
cubic-beziertype has been renamed to
- User-defined composite types and the associated
typedeftype have been removed
Community feedback around efficiency and commonly used patterns informed these additions:
- Additional pre-defined composite types, supporting a wider range of common composite token needs:
- Updates to groups, improving readability and consistency
A few other changes were made throughout the draft for clarity and grammatical errors.
We need your feedback
The Second Editor’s Draft is the “last call” for meaningful changes before the first Final Draft.
