Making a Figma plugin is an easy process that requires two main steps. The first step is to create the plugin code, and the second is to install it in Figma.
Creating the Plugin Code
Once you have all of the programming language basics down, you can start writing your plugin code. You’ll need to decide what features you want your plugin to have, such as creating custom shapes, manipulating objects, or creating animation effects.
After deciding on what features you want your plugin to have, you can start writing the code that will make those features possible.
Installing Your Plugin in Figma
Once your plugin code is written and tested for functionality, it’s time to install it in Figma. This process is relatively straightforward and requires just a few steps:
- Create a manifest file: The manifest file contains information about your plugin such as its name, description, and version number.
- Upload the zip file: You can upload your zip file directly into Figma by going into the Plugins tab and clicking “Upload Plugin”.
Once you’ve followed these steps successfully, your plugin should appear in the Plugins tab of Figma!
