Launchpad allows you to publish a live website directly from Sketch.
A paid Premium website, means we remove our branding from it, in addition to allow you to connect it to a custom domain.
So once your design is ready to go live, go Premium to use your own brand.
You also get hosting, versioning, backups, Search-Engine-Optimization, and more features are right around the corner.
How do I pay?
In Sketch, under the plugin menu, choose “Upgrade Plan”. Why not here? because we need you to be logged in to make sure you’re getting your purchases.
What happens if I stop paying?
When you remove ‘Premium’ from a website, whether manually or by changing your plan, it means it will no longer be connected to your domain, and that our branding is shown again.
Can I charge directly my client?
Soon. We’re making it possible to let your client pay for thier Premium website. It means you’d send your client a secured link, allowing her to pay / quit online. No technical skills required for this, it’s a 1-page dashboard for the owner.
Can I get the website code?
Soon. We’re working on it, and paid plans would allow you or the website owner (Your client) to get the code for the complete website.
Can I change plans?
Sure, on Sketch, under the plugin menu, choose “Upgrade Plan”. Choose your new plan.
Do I need technical skills?
No. You only need design skills. Press a button and Launchpad will do the rest.
What’s Domain support?
We allow you to create live websites, meaning it can also have a real address (not just launchpad.animaapp.com one). So if you’ve bought a domain, i.e ‘mydomain.com’, you may connect it to a paid, Premium website you’ve created with Launchpad.
Websites are made of files - your web pages HTML & CSS files, your images, and from data - the results of all your visitors forms.
In order to make it available on the web, we need to put it online on a server farm. We currently use Amazon’s AWS servers, meaning it is very fast and resilient.
What are Forms?
Forms allow you to interact with your website visitors. For example, if you’d like the to subscribe and give you their details. Or, if you’d like to make a ‘Contact us’ section.
When creating a form, you decide if you want to store the results on a spreadsheet, or have an email sent to you each time a visitor sends a form. Or you can have both.
What are Backups & Versioning?
We understand your design goes more than a few cycles, and Launchpad makes it easy to publish as many updates as you want.
Sometimes you find out there’s a bug in your design, or the client prefers an older variation of it after you’ve already published it.
No problem, you can view older versions and change the one that’s live in a matter of a click.
Why would I need an Agency account?
If you’re a team, with a few designers working on the same website, you’d like to allow all/some team members to publish updates, not just 1. That’s Team-Management.
In addition, if you have a large capacity of websites you own, you’ll need to get more than a 10-sites pack. According to your requirements, we’ll suit you with a custom plan.
If you’re not sure, just start with a Pro plan and upgrade when you hit the limit.
