Hi, this is a blog about generating html code from Figma file. Today we will see the process of generating HTML or XHTML code from Figma file.
Before starting to read this article, please make sure that you have the latest version of Figma Desktop App installed in your operating system.
I’m Phuc and I’m a front end developer. Recently, I’ve been working on a project that require me to use Figma file to generate HTML code. Currently, the project is still ongoing so I can’t share too much information about it. However, I will show you how I use Figma file to generate HTML code in this blog post.
Figma is a design tool that allows designers to create, collaborate, and publish designs for websites and mobile apps easily. The tool itself provides features that make the design process efficient. One of these features is the ability to generate html code from the designed layout using the Figma To Code plugin. This plugin allows the user to generate XHTML or HTML code with CSS which can be used in a website or web application.
First of all, you need to have an account on Figma to use this feature. You can sign up for a Figma account here. Sign up using your email address or Google account, then install the plugin by clicking Install on the Get Plugin button. This installs the plugin to your desktop Figma application. If you do not have an existing Figma file yet, get started by creating one. Open your desktop Figma application and click on Create New File to start designing your layout.
To access and manage plugins in Figma, click on Plugins in the top menu bar, then select Manage Plugins on this menu option list. In Manage Plugin window, you will see all available plugins that you can install on your desktop app to extend its built-in capabilities. You can search for other plugins like Design
Figma is a very useful prototyping tool for web designers. It has many features that helps us to work faster and better. One of them is the ability to generate HTML code of any element on our Figma canvas.
This is a quick guide on how you can use this feature to generate either XHTML or HTML code from your Figma file and use it in your web design project.
1. Open your Figma file and select an element that you want to generate HTML code for.
2. Right-click on the element and select Copy Code > XHTML or HTML depending on what you need.
3. Paste the generated code into the code editor of your choice, save and test it out in any browser of your choice.
I was working on a project to build an accessibility mobile application. My role in this project is building the UI and I used Figma for that. I started exploring how we could use Figma to generate HTML code, which will help us to develop the application faster.
One of the main requirements is this application must be accessible, which means it should be compatible with most screen readers and browser extensions. We have to make sure our code is semantic, with proper HTML tags and WAI-ARIA attributes.
After some research and testing, I found some ways to generate HTML code from Figma files. These are the steps I took:
Figma to HTML is a great tool and workflow to generate HTML code from Figma file. It’s very convenient for developers to generate the boilerplate code of web pages.
I’ve tried some similar tools before, but never got it working correctly with the way I design websites. This one seems perfect for me. I design then export it as HTML code and then add my styling, easy!
Again, Figma to HTML is not a tool that generates pixel-perfect HTML/CSS from Figma file, rather it’s a tool that helps you convert your designs into a markup language that you can work with.
Let’s dive into an example of how this works.
Hi! I’m the creator of Figma to HTML, a service that generates HTML and CSS code from your Figma design files.
I’m writing this article because I hope it will be useful for people who are interested in the topic of converting designs to code, people who use Figma or have heard about it, and those who create websites, whether they are developers or designers.
