How To Get Html Code From Figma

In this blog post, we will learn how to get the HTML code from a Figma design. This is particularly useful for web designers and developers who want to convert their Figma designs into functional HTML pages.

Step 1: Exporting the Figma Design as SVG

First, we need to export the Figma design as an SVG file. This format preserves vector graphics, making it easy to convert into HTML code. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open your Figma design.
  2. Select the layers or objects you want to export.
  3. Click on the ‘Export’ button located in the right panel.
  4. Choose ‘SVG’ as the export format.
  5. Click ‘Export [Layer/Object Name].’ Save the SVG file on your computer.

Step 2: Converting the SVG to HTML

Now that we have an SVG file, we can convert it into HTML code. There are two methods to do this:

Method 1: Manual Conversion

You can manually convert the SVG code into HTML by following these steps:

  1. Open the SVG file in a text editor, such as Notepad or Visual Studio Code.
  2. Copy the entire SVG code, excluding the <?xml> declaration at the beginning.
  3. Paste the copied SVG code into your HTML file, wherever you want to place the design.

This method is suitable for simple designs and when you need precise control over the HTML code.

Method 2: Using an Online Converter

If you have a complex design or prefer an automated solution, you can use an online converter to convert the SVG file to HTML:

  1. Go to an online converter, such as SVG to HTML.
  2. Upload your SVG file or paste the SVG code into the input area.
  3. Click ‘Convert’ and wait for the conversion process to finish.
  4. Copy the generated HTML code and paste it into your HTML file.

Step 3: Adding CSS Styles (Optional)

After converting the Figma design to HTML, you may want to add CSS styles to match the original design further. You can either create a separate CSS file or add the styles within the HTML file using the <style> tag:

        /* Add your CSS styles here */

Remember to reference the CSS file in your HTML file if you create a separate stylesheet:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="your-stylesheet.css">


By following these steps, you can convert your Figma designs to HTML code and create functional web pages. This process is helpful for web designers and developers who want to streamline their workflow and improve the efficiency of their projects.
