Will stoplight studio continue to be updated?

Our team uses studio over web app since we can handle commits locally without needing to push every change to github. Do you plan to continue supporting studio with all the latest features? Even if it's a simple web wrapper around the web app, having the ability to work locally is much faster for us. However we're missing the latest features like masking that our team would like to use.

    Hi , supporting Studio Desktop long term is not currently part of Stoplight's plans, it is highly recommended that you move to Studio Web. Currently functionality like Component Libraries, Style Guides, and Masking are impossible to support in Desktop so the best way to access that is Studio Web. Our product team would definitely be interested in understanding why you prefer desktop over web and what we can change to make the transition easier!

    A good reason to use the Studio Desktop is the speed when doing a Git commit. On the Studio Web it sometimes takes 20 sec and you worry about a timeout...

      Sorry I missed this, I had a chat with Nauman about this on another call. The general gist is it's much easier for us to use studio as it's local; with web we have to commit each change into a branch then pull it locally.

        No worries! I would have given that information to Nauman so you really just made things more efficient 🙂
