How to install Stark

The different ways to install and get started with Stark in each software

Stark is currently available as an integration in four different tools for designers and developers, and with that comes a few different ways to install. Check out this article to see the variety of ways to quickly and easily get started.

Sketch

Since Sketch doesn’t have its own in-app repo for plugins, there are a few ways you can get going with Stark in Sketch.

Recommended: Install Stark via Sketch Runner, Sketchpacks, or Sketch Toolbox by searching for Stark.

Manual: Download the .zip file.

To get Stark installed and ready to use in Sketch:

  1. Navigate to wherever your file downloaded on your computer (usually Downloads)
  2. Extract and open the downloaded folder
  3. Double-click the Stark.sketchplugin file

Done! When you’re in a design file, navigate to Plugins in your top menu bar and you’ll find Stark ready to use.
