Penpot Desktop

Penpot Desktop delivers a desktop-like experience for Penpot users with the additional of integrating tabs to conveniently traverse back and forth between projects. Offline support is available through the select your own instance option in settings, as well as the theme settings that may be applied to either the entire desktop app or simply the Penpot dashboard.

Built on Open Source

Proudly built with open source technology and libraries. Thanks to Electron, it's cross-platform allowing it to work on operating systems such as Windows, macOS, and Linux. Anyone willing to help with Penpot Desktop are welcomed to contribute to it's source code on SudoVanilla Code.

Offline Usage

One of the major features of Penpot Desktop, is that it can be used offline if you selfhost Penpot on your own machine. You could also connect Penpot Desktop to our own Penpot instance running on your own server. This is thanks to Penpot allowing you to use technology such as Docker to selfhost your own instance.
