Yeoman generator for creating Adobe XD Plugin projects.

XD plugins extend the capabilities of Adobe XD by adding new features to the app, automating workflows, connecting the app to external services, and more.

This generator simply creates the scaffolding of files for XD Plugin using webpack and xdpm (Adobe XD Plugin Manager Command Line Tool).

Also, this project provides live-reloading of plugins. So that developers do not have to copy their plugin project files into develop folder. Developers may start coding almost as same style as webpack-dev-server.

Adobe XD is made for designers, by designers. It’s the fastest way to design, prototype, and share any user experience, from websites and mobile apps to voice interactions, and more.


First, install Yeoman and generator-xd using npm (we assume you have pre-installed node.js).

npm install -g yo
npm install -g generator-xd-plugin
