Figma UI to Code Figma Plugin: Project Overview
Transform a component from Figma into a component snippet + live preview:
I was looking into Figma plugin work done by design system teams and I wanted to see the feasibility of turning a mock-up into code given an expected component library.
What it Shows
Given a component design library, select in Figma + output the code needed to use the same component in code. (Great for design systems with near 1:1 design-to-code alignment)
- Designers get easier handoff to developers
- Developers can get started with code that uses UI components from a component library
- Depending on how mock-ups are designed, you could generate whole layouts of code
- Code template initially comes from nirsky/figma-plugin-react-template
- Inspired by astonishing Figma Plugin wizardry done by Design System teams across many organizations.
