Convert websites to Adobe XD designs
For professional design work
If you are a designer trying to work on an existing website, you can use Teleport to import the site into Adobe XD and avoid hours of manual work.
Rapidly create complex designs without scripting
In the spirit of Dan Mall's Stealing your way to original designs, use Teleport to experiment with a large number of designs as you're learning the craft.
Sites like Dribble and pre-made design templates are a rich source for inspiration. The world-wide-web is an even larger and varied source of design ideas and Teleport lets you unlock all of it.
You can install Teleport in 2 minutes:
Now, click on the Teleport icon, which is located in the browser's extensions toolbar. Then just click on the "Start!" button to begin.
Help & Support
Write to us at email@example.com. Apologies in advance for delayed response — at times it could take us as long as a week before we are able to respond. But feel free to follow-up if it is urgent!
Protoship Teleport is built by Jacob Sherin and Jasim using the Rescript compiler on the front-end, and Rust and the axum web framework on the backend. This stack is a joy to program in and we're very thankful to the people building them.
Adobe XD's plugin architecture is robust and well-designed, and was a pleasure to work with.
Protoship owes a deep debt and gratitude to BigBinary, without whose help Teleport simply wouldn't have been possible. Thanks folks!
A brief history
We first launched Teleport in Dec 2015, and it was used by numerous designers over the next few years. However, it targeted Sketch at the time and we were relying on Sketch's internal, undocumented APIs. This made it difficult to support newer versions of the software. We shut down the service later and decided to bring it back with a more stable base. This is that release.
I'm not a designer, can I use Teleport?
No. I mean, no, you _are_ a designer. Everyone is a designer. So everyone can use Teleport :)
Privacy and data retention
The Teleport Chrome extension limits itself to the absolute minimum permission possible for it to do its job. It can be activated only by you explicitly clicking on the extension icon on the browser toolbar. Otherwise it has zero access to the browser (this is enforced by Chrome itself). But once activated, the extension will have complete access to the current site you are in. This is necessary because it has to traverse the entire DOM to capture the website and send to the Protoship server.
On the server, the site contents you upload is stored in-memory and is not persisted to the disk. It expires 40 minutes after it was uploaded. It is not saved in any persistent storage, and is gone from our system after expiry.
Email us with your testimonials
We avoid collecting user data as much as possible and only have basic page visit analytics in the protoship.io website. (It's gone, it wasn't terribly useful anyway). All we have is your user account in the database. We don't save the contents of the sites you upload - it is in-memory and is expired and removed from the server every 40 minutes.
There is no data collection like error reporting or usage analytics in either the Chrome extension or in the Adobe XD plugin. This means we're sort of flying blind when it comes to knowing how you're using the product.
So if you enjoy Teleport and want to motivate us to continue improving it, then do write to us with your testimonials. If Teleport helped you save some time or made your designs better, we would love to know! Reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teleport for other design tools
Building clients for each new tool takes months of effort and will require ongoing work to keep up with newer releases. It is unlikely that we'll be able to invest that kind of effort for more tools.
