🍱 Figma + FigJam Plugin Samples

Sample plugins using the Figma + FigJam Plugin API.

To make a feature request, file a bug report, or ask a question about developing plugins, check out the available resources.

Getting Started

These plugins are written using TypeScript to take advantage of Figma's typed plugin API. Before installing these samples as development plugins, you'll need to compile the code using the TypeScript compiler. Typescript can also watch your code for changes as you're developing, making it easy to test new changes to your code in Figma.

To install TypeScript, first install Node.js. Then:

$ npm install -g typescript

Next install the packages that the samples depend on. Currently, this will only install the lastest version of the Figma typings file. Most of the samples will reference this shared typings file in their

tsconfig.json
.
$ npm install

Now, to compile the Bar Chart sample plugin (for example):

$ cd barchart
$ tsc

Now you can import the Bar Chart plugin from within the Figma desktop app (

Plugins > Development > Import plugin from manifest...
from the right-click menu)!

The code for each plugin is in

code.ts
in that plugin's subdirectory. If a plugin shows some UI, the HTML will be in
ui.html
.

For example, the code for the Bar Chart sample plugin is in barchart/code.ts, and the HTML for its UI is in barchart/ui.html.

Styling your plugin UI

For plugins that have a UI, we recommend matching the style and behavior of Figma. Many other plugins follow this convention and it helps create consistency in the plugin experience for users as they use different plugins. Here's a few approaches that can help when styling your UI:

FigJam Plugins

The following sample plugins use the new FigJam node types (stickies, shapes with text, connectors, and stamps) and so work best in FigJam, i.e. with an editorType of 'figjam' in your manifest.json file.

Vote Tally

This plugin will find all stamps close to a sticky and generate a tally of all the stamps (votes) next to a sticky on the page.

Check out the source code.

Create Shapes + Connectors

This plugin creates 5

ROUNDED_RECTANGLE
Shapes with Text nodes and adds a Connector node in between each of them.

Check out the source code.

Additional Examples

The following sample plugins work in both Figma and FigJam.

Conditional Plugins

You can create plugins that have conditional logic depending on whether they are run in Figma, or FigJam.

When this plugin runs in Figma, it opens a window to prompt the user to enter a number, and it will then create that many rectangles on the screen.

When this plugin runs in FigJam, it opens a window to prompt the user to enter a number, and it will then create that many

ROUNDED_RECTANGLE
shapes with text nodes, and also adds a connector node in between each shape.

Check out the source code.

Examples without a plugin UI

Circle Text

Takes a single text node selected by the user and creates a copy with the characters arranged in a circle.

Check out the source code.

Invert Image Color

Takes image fills in the current selection and inverts their colors.

This demonstrates:

  • how to read/write images stored in a Figma document, and
  • how to use
    showUI
    to access browser APIs.

Check out the source code.

Meta Cards

This plugin will find links within a text node and create on canvas meta cards of an image, title, description and link based on the tags in the head of a webpage at the relative links.

Check out the source code.

Sierpinski

Generates a fractal using circles.

Check out the source code.

Vector Path

Generates a triangle using vector paths.

Check out the source code.

Examples with a plugin UI

Bar Chart

Generates a bar chart given user input in a modal.

Check out the source code.

Document Statistics

Computes a count of the nodes of each

NodeType
in the current document.

Check out the source code.

Pie Chart

Generates a pie chart given user input in a modal.

Check out the source code.

Text Search

Searches for text in the document, given a query by the user in a modal.

This demonstrates:

  • advanced message passing between the main code and the plugin UI,
  • how to keep Figma responsive during long-running operations, and
  • how to use the viewport API.

Check out the source code.

Examples with parameters

Go To

A plugin to quickly go to any layer or page in the Figma file.

For more information on how to accept parameters as input to your plugin, take a look at this guide.

Check out the source code.

Resizer

Resizes a selected shape. There are two submenus, allowing for absolute resizing and relative resizing.

SVG Inserter

Inserts an SVG icon into the canvas.

Trivia

Generates a series of trivia questions taken from an external trivia API.

Examples with bundling

Webpack + React

Create rectangles! This demonstrates:

  • Bundling plugin code using Webpack
  • Using React with TSX
    $ npm install
    $ npm run build
