How Do I Export From Figma Prototype to App?

Figma is a powerful design tool that enables users to design and prototype interactive websites, mobile apps, and more. With its intuitive interface and powerful features, it has become a popular choice among designers.

But, one of the most important questions that anyone new to the program faces is “How do I export from Figma prototype to an app?”.

The process of exporting a Figma prototype to an app is simple and straightforward. First, you need to open the Figma prototype file in the Figma editor.

Then you can use the ‘Export’ option in the left-hand side panel. This will open a window where you can choose which elements you want to export. You can select any element from your project and export it as an image or as a vector file.

Once you have selected all of the elements you wish to export, click on ‘Export’ at the bottom of the window. This will generate a zip file containing all of your exported images or vectors in their respective formats.

The next step is to upload this zip file into your app development platform – such as Flutter or React Native – where your app will be built.

Now that the images are uploaded into the platform, they need to be linked with your code so that they show up in your app when it is launched on either Android or iOS devices.

To link images with code:

You can use CSS classes or ID’s for each element in order to link them with their respective code snippets. In Flutter for example, if you want an image to appear when the user clicks on a button then you would use something like this:

.button1 {background-image: url("/path/to/image");}

After linking all of your images with their respective code snippets, you should be able to properly view them when launching your app.


Exporting from Figma prototypes into apps can be relatively easy once you understand how it works. By selecting which elements you want exported in Figma’s ‘Export’ window, uploading them into your development platform and linking them with code snippets; it should enable users to view these elements correctly when launching their app.
