Sometimes I feel like a magician because as a developer, I get to build whatever comes to my mind - whether it's a new product or a small script to automate tedious activities. The latter is what I'd like to ask you, awesome peeps, about. But first...
As I wanted the posts to look nice, I created a template in Sketch for all my short-text posts.
After creating 2 of those images I found it's time-consuming to change the text, export the file and start again...
So as a true developer, I created a script to automate this job.
What it does:
- Reads an array of texts
- For each text element, replaces my Sketch template's placeholder text
- Saves the file as a .png
So now all I have to do is just...come up with quality content!
It took me just about an hour, but when I finally finished, I was really happy, as it's something real and saves me time in the long run.
That leads me to my question...
