Editing and Managing Color Tokens
Introduction to Design Tokens
Design tokens are atomic design properties - a color, font, border radius, or some combination of these sorts of properties - expressed as a source variable that can be combined, translated and consumed across an entire digital ecosystem.
Adding design tokens to your Knapsack workspace can help your team define, document, and distribute color, typography, and other core styling properties to your design system users.
Note: To make these changes to your workspace, you must be logged in and have either Admin or Editor permissions.
