Very impressed by the https://t.co/Z94YwYefYv plugin for @sketch for checking colour contrast 🖌️ https://t.co/OApzJwLfIz @JamFactory As long as you have that turned on and leave it in "Rest Mode" rather than turning it off, it *should* save you for next time. @JamFactory Have you not got automatic updates turned on? https://t.co/pDtlG7RmBX

Thanks Internet, you’re done for the day. Bravo. https://t.co/d5BrGbTkiV @JamFactory @Migweld I mean, the original was multi-part too right? All them discs 🙂 @_csalmeida Agreed. People agreed on JSON as a standard that sits happily between all languages. Wouldn’t that be nice for templating?
