Command-line interface for Zeplin
Install Zeplin CLI using npm.

Connected Components in Zeplin lets you access components in your codebase directly on designs in Zeplin, with links to Storybook, GitHub and any other source of documentation based on your workflow. 🧩
connect command uses plugins to analyze component source code and publishes a high-level overview to be displayed in Zeplin. You can either publish changes to your components manually, or better yet, you can always keep them in sync by running the CLI as a step in your CI workflow.
Make sure that you created a configuration file (
.zeplin/components.json) following Connected Components documentation and run the
zeplin connect [options]
