That's a really interesting perspective, Helder. I didn't come across Akira in my searches but let's hope more tools like it surface and gain support.
My team has evaluated Figma as a possible alternative to Sketch / XD and found it to be a competent tool, but we couldn't justify the cost to ourselves since XD is already bundled into our CC Subscription price. And even though Figma is browser-based and therefore can run in an opensource environment, I chose not to include it in this article for the simple reason that Figma, itself, isn't an open source application.
