โœจ In Short

Components

You can export your Figma Components as SVG and use them inside your website.

This is particularly useful when you have your own icon set and you want to keep your website icons up-to-date with your Figma file.

Styles

You can export your Figma Styles into different output like .sass format, .scss format or you can create your own outputter.

If you want to keep the style of your Figma file in-sync with the .css of your website, this is a must-have.

๐ŸŽจ Colors (paints)

  • Color
  • Linear Gradient

๐Ÿญ Effects

Shadow and Blur effects cannot be combined together since they use two different CSS properties.

  • Inner Shadow
  • Drop Shadow
  • Layer Blur

โœ๏ธ Text

  • font-family
  • font-weight
  • font-size
  • line-height
  • letter-spacing
  • font-style
  • font-variant
  • text-transform

๐Ÿ— Personal Access Token

First of all you have to set the environment variable FIGMA_TOKEN.

To do so, you need a Personal Access Token. You can generate one from your Account Settings.

Figma - Account Menu

Inside the Account Settings click on Create a new personal access token and enter a description.

Copy the token, this is your only chance to do so!

export FIGMA_TOKEN=<personalAccessToken>

You can use dotenv or export the variable using .bash_profile/.bashrc file.

๐Ÿงช Just Try

If you wanna try it just run following command and you will be able to download all components from https://www.figma.com/file/fzYhvQpqwhZDUImRz431Qo as .svg ๐Ÿ˜Ž

# export figma token
export FIGMA_TOKEN=<personalAccessToken>

# export figma components as svg
npx -p @figma-export/cli -p @figma-export/output-components-as-svg figma-export components fzYhvQpqwhZDUImRz431Qo -O @figma-export/output-components-as-svg

or you can export all styles into .scss

# export figma token
export FIGMA_TOKEN=<personalAccessToken>

# export figma styles as .scss variables
npx -p @figma-export/cli -p @figma-export/output-styles-as-sass figma-export styles fzYhvQpqwhZDUImRz431Qo -O @figma-export/output-styles-as-sass

๐Ÿ“ฆ Packages

@figma-export/core

This package contains the core functionalities for figma-export. You can download and use it as a dependency of your project.

@figma-export/cli

This package allows you to consume all core functionalities from your terminal.

๐Ÿ“– Usage

Typically you'll prefer to use the cli. Here different ways to do the same:

Build Process

You can use figma-export as part of your build process.

npm install --save-dev @figma-export/cli @figma-export/output-components-as-svg @figma-export/output-styles-as-sass

# or using `yarn`
yarn add @figma-export/cli @figma-export/output-components-as-svg @figma-export/output-styles-as-sass --dev

Now you can create a script command inside your package.json.

Following an example:

{
  "scripts": {
+   "figma:export-components": "figma-export components fzYhvQpqwhZDUImRz431Qo -O @figma-export/output-components-as-svg",
+   "figma:export-styles": "figma-export styles fzYhvQpqwhZDUImRz431Qo -O @figma-export/output-styles-as-sass",
  }
}

Use it on the fly

Alternatively you can use npx to use it on the fly:

npx @figma-export/cli help

Global Setup

You can also install it as a global dependency:

npm install -g @figma-export/cli

# or using `yarn`
yarn add @figma-export/cli --global
figma-export help

Advanced

Last but not least, you can create a configuration file and use a single command to rule them all ๐Ÿ’

Let's create the file .figmaexportrc.js and paste the following:

module.exports = {

    commands: [

        ['styles', {
            fileId: 'fzYhvQpqwhZDUImRz431Qo',
            outputters: [
                require('@figma-export/output-styles-as-sass')({
                    output: './output/styles'
                })
            ]
        }],

        ['components', {
            fileId: 'fzYhvQpqwhZDUImRz431Qo',
            onlyFromPages: ['icons'],
            transformers: [
                require('@figma-export/transform-svg-with-svgo')({
                    plugins: [
                        { removeViewBox: false },
                        { removeDimensions: true }
                    ]
                })
            ],
            outputters: [
                require('@figma-export/output-components-as-svg')({
                    output: './output/components'
                })
            ]
        }]

    ]

};

now you can install the @figma-export dependencies that you need

npm install --save-dev @figma-export/cli @figma-export/output-styles-as-sass @figma-export/transform-svg-with-svgo @figma-export/output-components-as-svg @figma-export/output-styles-as-sass

and update the package.json.

{
  "scripts": {
+   "figma:export": "figma-export use-config"
  }
}

If needed you can also provide a different configuration file.

{
  "scripts": {
+   "figma:export": "figma-export use-config .figmaexportrc.production.js"
  }
}

TypeScript

If you prefer, you can create a .figmaexportrc.ts and use TypeScript instead. For doing so, you just need to install a few new dependencies in your project.

npm install --save-dev typescript ts-node @types/node @figma-export/types

and slightly change your package.json

{
  "scripts": {
+   "figma:export": "ts-node ./node_modules/.bin/figma-export use-config .figmaexportrc.ts"
  }
}

Take a look at .figmaexportrc.example.ts for more details.
