How Do I Get the Code From Figma?

Figma is an incredibly powerful tool that allows designers to create, collaborate and share their design work. It is a cloud-based platform that enables designers to quickly create interactive prototypes and share them with stakeholders.

But how do you get the code from Figma? The answer isn’t as complicated as it may seem.

Export From Figma

Figma makes it easy to export your design into code. All you have to do is select the element(s) you want to import into code and click “Export” from the top menu. You will then be presented with several options for how you want to export your design, such as HTML, CSS or SCSS.

Copy Paste Code

Once you have exported your design, the next step is to copy and paste the code into your text editor or IDE. You can also use a plugin like CodePen or Codepen Pro if you want an easier way of copying code from Figma.

Style with CSS

You can further customize the look of your design by adding custom CSS styles. This can be done by either manually writing out the CSS styles in your text editor or using a plugin like Prefixr which will generate all of the necessary CSS codes for you.


Getting the code from Figma is relatively simple. All that needs to be done is selecting elements, exporting them into HTML/CSS, copying and pasting the code into a text editor or IDE, and optionally styling it with custom CSS styles. With this guide in hand, anyone should be able to easily get their designs from Figma into usable code.
