    Pros: 

    Created to make the design workflow easier.

    Cons: 

    It needs better UI and a better way to manage Chains

    Having the ability to do color modifications/operations dynamically can be really useful and is not a feature of any major design tool

Hello, everybody! Chain was inspired by SASS color functions (https://robots.thoughtbot.com/co...). There needed to be a way for designers to change complex color layouts without having to change each layer manually. I believe Chain will create a new interesting way to work with colors since I haven't seen anything like that. There's a lot to learn about how designers will implement this in their workflow, but I want to keep improving the plugin to make it much more intuitive. If you have any comments, I'll be happy to answer them!

@fbmore Hmm, that's interesting. Would you like to be able to chain a pattern fill or to be able to apply a chained color on top of the pattern fill?
Do you support gradients?

@malling Not yet, mate, but it's definitely on my list. Gradients is an obvious case of use for colors and will definitely be supported soon.

Building beautiful UI is a big focus right now, we've migrated to Sketch and we're loving it, going to explore this more!
