If you’re an experienced web designer, you’ll know that prototyping is one of the most important elements of your design process. It allows you to test out ideas, build out user flows, and experiment with interactions before committing to code.
Figma and Webflow are two popular tools for prototyping, but did you know that you can combine them? In this article we’ll show you how to add a Figma prototype to Webflow, so that you can utilize the advantages of both tools.
Figma is a powerful collaborative design tool that makes it easy to design websites and apps. It allows teams to work together on the same document in real-time, and it has powerful features like version control so you can keep track of all changes.
Webflow is a visual development platform with built-in CMS capabilities. It’s great for quickly creating prototypes and then turning them into fully functioning websites.
Adding a Figma Prototype to Webflow:
The first step is to export your Figma prototype as an HTML file. To do this, open your prototype in Figma and click on the “Export” button in the top right corner.
Select “HTML” from the list of available formats and click “Export” again. This will generate an HTML file with all of your prototype content.
Next upload the HTML file to Webflow. To do this, open your project in Webflow and click on “Uploads” in the left sidebar.
Then click “Choose File” and select your exported HTML file from Figma. Once it has been uploaded, add it as an asset. To do this, click on “Assets” in the left sidebar and then select “Add Asset from Uploads.” Select your HTML file from the list of available files and click “Add Asset.” This will add it to your Assets Library so it can be used in your project.
Finally add the asset to your project. This can be done by dragging it from Assets Library into the Editor window or by using the Embed element (which can be found under Elements > Embed). When using Embed element make sure that Autoplay option is enabled if you want videos or animations included in your prototype.
Adding a Figma prototype to Webflow is easy, and it can provide some great advantages over traditional prototyping tools like Sketch or Adobe XD. By combining these two tools together, designers are able to take advantage of both platforms’ features while still maintaining their creative control over design decisions.
