‹div›RIOTS acquires the Kernel plugin

Since launching ‹div›RIOTS in 2019, we’ve been on a mission to create simple, effective tools that ease the development-design collaboration for frontend teams. We believe in using code as a source of truth for design and keeping code and design in sync. Currently, we have 9 different Figma plugins with over 1.2 million users combined.

And today, we’re thrilled to welcome another world-class Figma plugin into the ‹div›RIOTS family: the Kernel plugin!

“With story.to.design, we are helping some of our more premium users to design with real components from code… And we are now very excited to offer the ability to design with real data! Tom, Rob and the entire Kernel team have created an amazing plugin with very high-end customers. We can’t wait to continue their work.” - Georges Gomes (CEO, ‹div›RIOTS)

Kernel plugin - Use real content in your Figma designs

Since its inception, the Kernel plugin has been driven by its mission to help teams ship better products through more consistent and realistic design. They believe that designers and engineers who are on the same page deliver better experiences for users, making it clear how aligned we are.

The Kernel plugin is a designer’s content co-pilot in Figma, providing access to real content and data so they can design better and faster. By connecting directly to multiple content sources, the Kernel plugin helps make designs more realistic, quickly bringing them closer to what will be in production.

“We’re thrilled that the Kernel plugin is joining ‹div›RIOTS. At Kernel, we’ve been dedicated to empowering designers with great technical tools, and admire what ‹div›RIOTS have been building for some time now. To have our plugin join the ‹div›RIOTS family of tools is really exciting and will enable the Kernel plugin to grow further.” - Tom Carrington Smith (Co-founder of Kernel)

The future of Kernel & ‹div›RIOTS

The Kernel plugin will contribute to ‹div›RIOTS’ expanding ecosystem of tools, introducing to our users the ability to design with real content and data. We couldn’t be more excited about bringing the Kernel plugin into the family and further accelerating our mission to expand ‹div›RIOTS’ rapidly growing suite of Figma plugins for millions around the globe.

We’re also very excited about growing the Kernel plugin and bringing even more magic to your designs! At ‹div›RIOTS’ we now have multiple years’ worth of experience creating and developing some of Figma’s most popular plugins. We will bring our knowledge, technology and the resources required to further grow the Kernel plugin and take it to the next level.
