Repositories

An organization design data organized in three repositories called Light, General and Dark.

Repositories are locations — like "folders" — containing your synchronized design data. A repository can contain all types of design tokens and assets Specify is compatible with.


They're called "repositories" because, like in git based versioning tools (e.g., GitHub), they act as a central storage location people will push data into or pull data from.

A repository collects design data from Sources and distributes design data to Destinations.

Design data is pushed from sources to the Design API and pulled from the Design API to destinations.

Specify is compatible with the following type of design data:

  • border

  • color

  • depth

  • duration

  • gradient

  • measurement

  • opacity

  • shadow

  • text style

  • bitmap

  • vector

  • font
