Design to Code

Turn Figma to Code using

Ship products 5-10x faster with your existing design tools, tech stacks & workflows

Figma has become a household name in the design community. Being a truly browser-first product (not just storage in the cloud - no installation, no patching, no updates) and with highly collaborative features that no other design tool could think of or execute, Figma emerged as the clear market leader. 

You can design anything on Figma – from a cool logo to native apps and much more. But design is just the beginning of building a world-class product. You need to bring your product to life by actually building it - Writing the damn code!

That’s where comes in. While Figma is enough to get the ball rolling, even takes it further by enabling anyone with a Figma design to get high-quality, pixel-perfect code. 

By accelerating the building process – with minimal time and a shallow learning curve, builders can now quickly and easily go from Figma to code. 

Works with your favorite tools and stacks

We have made it very easy for builders to use is a Figma plugin (Adobe XD & Sketch support coming soon) and is completely browser-based. You can use your existing tech & design stacks to transform Figma into code. is built by builders for builders and therefore, we understand that builders need flexibility and choices. Hence, provides a plethora of tools and options such as media queries, advanced CSS, components and props, and live prototypes that run on code, not present in vanilla Figma, to accelerate your design-to-code journey.

Moreover, the plugin offers a comprehensive collection of components such as buttons, inputs, and dropdowns from all the top UI libraries namely Material UI (MUI), Bootstrap, Chakra, and Ant Design, as well as Tailwind CSS, easing the process of designing while offering high flexibility & choices as you take your project from Figma to code.

You can read more about how Locofy makes development easier in our recent blog.

AI-Powered converts your design components into pixel-perfect code with the help of something called “Tags”. Tags are essentially types that you can assign to components so that the plugin can create proper code for them.

Tagging allows you to turn static layers on your Figma design files into interactive functional buttons, input fields, videos, iFrames, and more. 

And we also have introduced LocoAI which can scan through your design and recommend tags, giving you an option to approve the suggestions and make tagging super fast! Refer to our guide to learn how AI tagging can help you ship faster.

Say hello to code-fueled prototypes!

Demo of the code behind the live prototype spins up a live, fully-functional prototype of your design without needing you to even write a single line of code. 

Bid farewell to lorem ipsum and directly bind your designs with any data source and experience prototypes the way your users would.

Unlike traditional Figma prototypes which are essentially static images, the plugin spins up a code-backed prototype instantly in your choice of framework so you can get a real-life representation of what your end users would interact with. You can also view your code change instantly as you keep making changes to your Figma files.

You can learn more about it in our detailed guide covering this topic.

View code & digest dynamic data builder doesn’t restrict engineers from creating apps that rely on a server or database for data.

Using it, developers can create websites & apps that can digest dynamic content by allowing them to split their design into functional components that accept props, much like you do in an actual code base, only this time it is easier, faster, and much more visual.

Additionally, you can also just export the selected components you need without exporting the entire source code. These components can easily be plugged into your project and follow best industry practices so you don’t have to spend time refactoring and cleaning it!

Moreover, you also get access to the code files even before exporting in the Builder so you can monitor live changes to your code as you create components and accept props.

Share & collaborate seamlessly with the Builder

Once you are ready to go live, the plugin will redirect you to the browser-based Builder where you can view code, share your work with your team members and not only will you get access to a live prototype, but you can quickly share the prototypes via a link too!

Your team members can contribute directly via the browser. 

It also shows your design file as layers, much like Figma, so you can get a birds-eye view of your design. Builder is inspired by the collaborative nature of Figma and therefore, not only will you get access to a live prototype, but you can quickly share the prototypes too!

After you are done with the prototype, you can easily share it by using the public link provided by the Builder.

Direct deploy, export, or add backend 

Not only do you get options in terms of UI libraries, but Builder can also export code to various market-leading frameworks like React, Next.js, Gatsby, and React Native. Exported code can use TypeScript, Tailwind CSS, and CSS modules too.

Don’t like frameworks? also supports plain HTML & CSS. isn’t just another Figma to React plugin. For simpler websites without any API or database integrations, the Locofy Builder can also handle deployment for you. integrates with trusted cloud hosts – Netlify, GitHub Pages, and Vercel, freeing you from the nitty gritty nuances associated with deploying the code yourself. 

Follow our comprehensive guide on how can deploy your projects without having you touch the code. 

Supercharge your Figma designs

Figma is an exceptionally powerful tool to design UI/UX and offers a wide range of free community resources that are more than sufficient for anyone to take the ball and run with it. However, the entire journey of turning your pixel-perfect design into responsive apps can take weeks, if not months, and even after that, iterating over work can be challenging. 

With you can beat the clock and ship products faster while following all the best industry practices. It does so with an AI-powered plugin so you can easily go from Figma and Adobe XD to code and also provides you with features that are not present in Figma such as live-fidelity prototypes. is on a mission to supercharge your creations by taking them from just design files to servers all over the world. Build your first project on now.

Keep your loco mode on!
