Modulz, a visual code editor that allows teams to design, develop, document and deploy a design system, without writing code, raised $4.2M in seed funding.
Backers included LocalGlobe, Frontline and angel investors Ryan Hoover (Founder of Product Hunt), Vedika Jain (Weekend Fund), Des Traynor (Co-founder of Intercom), Jina Anne (Founder of Clarity), and TinyVC.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand operations and its business reach.
Modulz provides a visual code editor that makes it easy for teams to manage their design system, build a component library and design interfaces—all without writing code.
The company’s design system includes:
– Theme—a set of reusable tokens for designing consistent components.
– Components—a production-ready component library, published to NPM.
– Styleguide—an automatically generated styleguide with component examples, code snippets, navigation, search and more.
– Integrations—a tool to export a design system to Sketch, Figma and Framer so a design team can utilize symbols, components and styles.
Each time users publish a new version of a design system from Modulz, all of these export targets update automatically.
