Overall Satisfaction with Zeplin

Zeplin is a very practical tool for prototypes and layout of web applications. It is very interesting for frontend development because it allows you to capture the CSS styles of the screens. This is a very comfortable job since you can optimize the work of frontend In terms of interface design. You can also import screens from Photoshop or SketchUp. Facilitating this task for the designer, you can also attach assets so that it is convenient for the developer to have all the references when it comes to diagramming.
  • You can get the CSS style code
  • You can import files from Photoshop and SketchUp
  • You can not define internal navigation by linking the screens
  • It optimizes development times with something that takes a lot of time like the frontend
  • Designers can interact with developers in a very light way since the tool allows developers to visualize the end of an interface and to imagine the functional ones of it
  • Marvel
Marvel is a pretty expensive application for what it gives you, it is a pretty good tool but I think the handoff is not as good as Zeplin's. I think the style of Zeplin is more oriented to developers and Marvel is more oriented to the designers. I like the way Zeplin is distributed more than Marvel.
Zeplin is very well at developing prototypes of applications. Also, you can base the development of frontend and layout, on the screens that are uploaded to the project. Besides the very good function of being able to upload assets separately so that the developer can have both the images and the assets in the project, I like that it is a pretty light tool. I like that it is much cheaper than other tools such as Marvel.
