As part of this work, we’ve updated this site to include an API Reference section.
The API itself is still under development, and should not be regarded as completely fixed or ready for prime-time.
It’s getting there however, and if you’re starting to work on new plugins, you may want to consider trying it out.
Over the next few releases we’ll be developing the API further, updating all of our existing plugin examples to use the API, and also adding some new examples.
With the next version of Sketch, we’re planning on fully adopting a change that Apple made a while ago known as App Transport Security. This relates to the security of HTTP connections, and requires that all such requests be made using
https: and not just plain
Until now we’ve disabled this feature, but soon we will enable it.
Unless your plugin requests content from web pages, it should be unaffected by this change.
If however you do fetch data or resources from web pages, you will need to change over to using
https: in your URLs.
We also suggest that everyone changes to using
https: for any URLs specified in the plugin’s manifest file. Future versions of Sketch may use these URLs.
