Akira is a native Linux design application built in Vala and GTK. Akira focuses on offering a modern and fast approach to UI and UX design, mainly targeting web designers and graphic designers. The main goal is to offer a valid and professional alternative to commercial and closed source tools like Sketch, Figma, or Adobe XD, in a completely native Linux experience.
