Having Figma integration would be AMAZING as an independent web designer.
I use Figma on basically every project I work on and not a single project goes by where I don’t feel like I’m deviating from DRY principles by having to recreate what I design in the prototyping application in whatever development tool I’m using. While this is a little easier when hand-coding CSS since Figma allows you to copy styles, it’s a pretty clumsy solution when working with a tool such as Cwicly.
So, YES!!! Please take steps to automate this process in some way as it would be immensely helpful.
Just saw this posted yesterday regarding figma > webflow integration. Looks nice. Not sure how much of this can be done with this integration with Cwicly, but just thought others would find it interesting to see.
I am strongly in favor of this. Cwicly is embracing what is revolutionary in Gutenberg, that is, a cutting edge design system based approach (permeating Cwicly how to videos from a year ago). Now, the tendency today for design system is towards a single source of truth: code! Instead of design team and devs working in isolated silos, the idea is that a figma or similar design system can be exported and imported right into theme.json file (or “global styles” counterpart). That way, when marketing chooses part of a design system (colors, spacing, typography…) they are choosing code (global styles already imported from figma), that is, everyone has a single source of truth.
I fully agree with this and especially with the new Quick Code feature, it feels that Figma is now a real waste of time.
Already stated that when Cwicly was in a total different state, workflow wise.
The general problem I have with such tools is, that I need to see things in action. It’s quite limited what one can achieve in that regard.
Plus, a Figma import might visually represent the actual design, but checking and tweaking each element one by one sounds like torture to me.
When I build the design by myself, I know exactly what’s going on. No need for debugging, etc.
For me, there is no chance that a design tool (and its import) can give me an overall advantage over an improved workflow while building inside Cwicly.
