I have been reflecting on how we can improve and grow our community, especially in terms of collaboration and contribution. One idea that came to mind is the ability to fork community files, similar to how GitHub works.
Why it is important?
By having the ability to “fork” files, we can obtain a copy of the original file and create a branch to propose changes. This would allow us to:
- Contribute to the libraries we use every day.
- Propose improvements and optimizations.
- Help with constructive feedback.
- Collaborate on documentation.
This method would not only give us the opportunity to improve existing files, but would also foster a culture of collaboration, similar to what we see in GitHub’s open source projects. It would allow members to actively contribute, improve and adapt the files according to changing design needs and current trends.
Imagine being able to contribute to projects on Figma the same way we contribute to projects on GitHub. This could revolutionize the way we collaborate and share in the community. I’d love to know what you all think about it. Do you see value in this idea?
Thank you for taking the time to read and consider this proposal. I await your comments and opinions!
