What our users say

Senior Front End Developer

"Once we moved to Knapsack the versioning was key. That was a big selling point to be able to have automatic versioning, so then any dependant will know exactly what version they are getting and you don't have to structure releases. Structuring a release manually can be really valuable for some projects but like you said the change was happening at such a fast pace that we needed a way to automate that."

"Knapsack’s approach simply matches how we expect collaboration software to work—log in, make changes, and trust that everyone sees what you did. Members of our team trust that everything in our design system is up to date and official."

Product Manager, Consumer Platform at Opendoor

"Knapsack gives us prototyping in code that designers can play with. And, dropping our technical scope of maintaining the code and Storybook is way more valuable to us than trying to maintain those things with the hope that eventually it becomes a design asset."

“When we're building design systems with our clients, we want to set them up for long-term success. Knapsack is always high on the list of considerations when I'm recommending solutions for a universal design system platform for documentation and engagement.”

"Thanks to a single URL and an approachable front-end to our design system, we’ve been able to consolidate our product’s documentation, React components, and Figma designs. Better yet, it’s now so accessible that folks actually use it and contribute to it!"
