✨ In Short


You can export your Figma Components as SVG and use them inside your website.

This is particularly useful when you have your own icon set and you want to keep your website icons up-to-date with your Figma file.


You can export your Figma Styles into different output like .sass format, .scss format, Style Dictionary tokens or you can create your own outputter.

If you want to keep the style of your Figma file in-sync with the .css of your website, this is a must-have.

🎨 Colors (paints)

  • Color
  • Linear Gradient

🍭 Effects

Shadow and Blur effects cannot be combined together since they use two different CSS properties.

  • Inner Shadow
  • Drop Shadow
  • Layer Blur

✏️ Text

  • font-family
  • font-weight
  • font-size
  • line-height
  • letter-spacing
  • font-style
  • font-variant

🗝️ Personal Access Token

First of all you have to set the environment variable FIGMA_TOKEN.

To do so, you need a Personal Access Token. You can generate one from your Account Settings.

Figma - Account Menu

Inside the Account Settings click on Create a new personal access token and enter a description.

Copy the token, this is your only chance to do so!

export FIGMA_TOKEN=<personalAccessToken>

You can use dotenv or export the variable using .bash_profile/.bashrc file.

🧪 Just Try

Ensure you have Node.js installed in your system, the latest LTS is recommended. If you are not familiar with Node.js you can read their guide.

If you wanna try it just run following command and you will be able to download all components from as .svg 😎

# export figma token
export FIGMA_TOKEN=<personalAccessToken>

# export figma components as svg
npx -p @figma-export/cli -p @figma-export/output-components-as-svg figma-export components fzYhvQpqwhZDUImRz431Qo -O @figma-export/output-components-as-svg

or you can export all styles into .scss

# export figma token
export FIGMA_TOKEN=<personalAccessToken>

# export figma styles as .scss variables
npx -p @figma-export/cli -p @figma-export/output-styles-as-sass figma-export styles fzYhvQpqwhZDUImRz431Qo -O @figma-export/output-styles-as-sass

📦 Packages

This package contains the core functionalities for figma-export. You can download and use it as a dependency of your project.

This package allows you to consume all core functionalities from your terminal.

📖 Usage

Typically you'll prefer to use the cli. Here different ways to do the same:

Build Process

You can use figma-export as part of your build process.

npm install --save-dev @figma-export/cli @figma-export/output-components-as-svg @figma-export/output-styles-as-sass

# or using `yarn`
yarn add @figma-export/cli @figma-export/output-components-as-svg @figma-export/output-styles-as-sass --dev

Now you can create a script command inside your package.json.

Following an example:

  "scripts": {
+   "figma:export-components": "figma-export components fzYhvQpqwhZDUImRz431Qo -O @figma-export/output-components-as-svg",
+   "figma:export-styles": "figma-export styles fzYhvQpqwhZDUImRz431Qo -O @figma-export/output-styles-as-sass",

Use it on the fly

Alternatively you can use npx to use it on the fly:

npx @figma-export/cli --help

Global Setup

You can also install it as a global dependency:

npm install -g @figma-export/cli

# or using `yarn`
yarn add @figma-export/cli --global
figma-export --help


Last but not least, you can create a configuration file and use a single command to rule them all 💍

Let's create the file .figmaexportrc.js and paste the following:

module.exports = {

    commands: [

        ['styles', {
            fileId: 'fzYhvQpqwhZDUImRz431Qo',
            // version: 'xxx123456', // optional - file's version history is only supported on paid Figma plans
            // ids: ['138:52'], // optional - Export only specified node IDs (the `onlyFromPages` option is always ignored when set)
            // onlyFromPages: ['icons'], // optional - Figma page names or IDs (all pages when not specified)
            outputters: [
                    output: './output/styles'

        ['components', {
            fileId: 'fzYhvQpqwhZDUImRz431Qo',
            // version: 'xxx123456', // optional - file's version history is only supported on paid Figma plans
            // ids: ['54:22'], // optional - Export only specified node IDs (the `onlyFromPages`    option is always ignored when set)
            onlyFromPages: ['icons'],
            // filterComponent: (component) => !/^figma/.test(, // optional
            transformers: [
                    plugins: [
                            name: 'preset-default',
                            params: {
                                overrides: {
                                    removeViewBox: false,
                            name: 'removeDimensions',
                            active: true
            outputters: [
                    output: './output/components'



ℹ️ Take a look at .figmaexportrc.example.js for more details.

now you can install the @figma-export dependencies that you need

npm install --save-dev @figma-export/cli @figma-export/output-styles-as-sass @figma-export/transform-svg-with-svgo @figma-export/output-components-as-svg

and update the package.json.

  "scripts": {
+   "figma:export": "figma-export use-config"

If needed you can also provide a different configuration file.

  "scripts": {
+   "figma:export": "figma-export use-config .figmaexportrc.production.js"


If you prefer, you can create a .figmaexportrc.ts and use TypeScript instead. For doing so, you just need to install a few new dependencies in your project.

npm install --save-dev typescript ts-node @types/node @figma-export/types

and slightly change your package.json

  "scripts": {
+   "figma:export": "ts-node ./node_modules/@figma-export/cli/bin/run use-config .figmaexportrc.ts"

Take a look at .figmaexportrc.example.ts for more details.

Node.js ESM

Node.js is now supporting ECMAScript modules (ESM).

If your package.json contains the "type": "module" field then you'll need to rename your .figmaexportrc.js configuration file:

-  .figmaexportrc.js
+  .figmaexportrc.cjs

and adjust the command you run:

figma-export use-config .figmaexportrc.cjs

If instead you're using the TypeScript setup you'll need to rename the .figmaexportrc.ts configuration file.

-  .figmaexportrc.ts
+  .figmaexportrc.cts
