Get in Formation
A Fractal instance is all well and good, but if the goal was to speed up going from Sketch to production code, we needed integration with Vets.gov's codebase. Still working within our scrappy team of 3, the two software engineers focused on building that integration using NPM and our existing pipeline, while I focused on documenting and in some cases building the components inside Fractal. (I'm still one of the lead Github contributors, even though I haven't been able to work on the project since 2019.) Formation was used as the foundation for integrating Vets.gov to VA.gov, and lives on as the basis for the VA's design system.
