Is Figma to HTML conversion possible? - finally answered

Figma to HTML code convert

So, you're starting a new design project and you've been hearing a lot about Figma as a design tool, but you're wondering: Is going from Figma to HTML code possible?

Because the closer you can get to a finished product, the better.

You aren't alone: This is a very big need in the design community.

Right now, Figma offers basic hints for CSS classes, but it does not currently have a native solution for HTML code.

But never fear! Luckily, there are a number of cool plugins that can help you get the job done.

In this article, I'll be showing you the top plugins to help you achieve this.

That way, you're well on your way to an amazingly-impressive, jaw-droppingly good product or landing page!

PS: I'm only going to be sharing the best solutions with you here - many articles will list ALL solutions, but I tried many of these Figma-to-code plugins, and many of them only partially work (and there were a LOT). So, I left those out to save you the hassle and only included the options that are the most comprehensive!

1. Webflow plugin

Webflow is a common choice, and they have a plugin that lets you convert your website designs in Figma over to Webflow.

Want to transfer over your website or landing page designs and format, along with important things like components? No problem! This plugin has got it going on.

In addition, Webflow has a free plan so that you can see if you like it first.

So, if you're looking to convert an entire website or landing page design to code, I think this is a great option to try out.

Up until this point, I haven't found anything that is so comprehensive if you're looking to not just create pieces or components, but also a complete page or website.

2. Overlay plugin

The Overlay Tech plugin lets you quickly and easily convert Figma designs to HTML, Vue, or React code.

Personally, I have tried the HTML conversion part of their plugin, and it works great for components like buttons, cards, etc.

Basically, it's perfect if you're creating a foundation for your design project or you need coherent style guides for your developers.

For example, for any design project, developers are going to want a full list of how each button, drop-down, navigation menu, and link should look.

This plugin provides an excellent starting point, which gives your devs a design foundation to launch from and build upon.

2. The hire-a-developer route

Don't want to mess with plugins? You can always hire a developer using a freelance website and ask them to code up your designs.

Fortunately, it is very easy to do this using Figma, and it's super developer-friendly. All devs I have worked with have loved Figma.

Anyway, I hope this has been useful. I could have listed 50 plugins here that help with converting design to code, but in my experience, many of them are lacking so I only included the ones that are the most comprehensive here to save you time. :-) (Because who has time to try 50 plugins?)

Best of luck with your project!
