Apologies for my ignorance, but does using Sketch replace the need to write code in CSS?

I'm still fairly new to design.

But I wanted to know from the users of Sketch 3, does it replace the need to write code in CSS? The reason I ask is because I've noticed that Sketch will export the code for you in CSS and from there you can implement the design into your site.

Is this true?

Sketch does not replace CSS. It does have a feature that allows you to export colors and properties of objects in Sketch, but I wouldn't say it's a replacement. If you want to actually implement websites, and not just design the layout-- learn CSS too. :)

Good luck! Dustin
