How To Publish Figma Website

Figma is an innovative design platform that empowers businesses to develop engaging and professional designs for their websites. This web-based tool has greatly simplified the process of collaborating and sharing design projects. Nevertheless, some users face a challenge when it comes to publishing their Figma designs as functioning websites. This guide will walk you through the necessary steps to successfully publish your Figma design as a website.

Step 1: Finalize Your Design in Figma

Your first step is to ensure your Figma design is completely ready for publish. This involves checking every single detail from font sizes, color schemes, images, buttons, links, to the overall layout. The quality of your final design will have a direct impact on your published website.

Step 2: Export Your Design

Once your design is ready, the next step is to export it. Figma gives you the flexibility to export either individual elements or entire frames.

To export, simply select the elements or frames you want to export, click on the “Export” button located on the right panel, choose the format (we recommend SVG for web designs) and then finally click on “Export [name]”.

Step 3: Convert Your Design into HTML/CSS

After exporting your design, the next step is to convert it into HTML and CSS. There are a few third-party tools and plugins available that can help you with this process such as Anima, Avocode, or Zeplin.

For example, with Anima, you can sync your Figma designs and it’ll convert your designs into responsive HTML & CSS. Once you’ve converted your designs, you can download the code.

Step 4: Upload the HTML/CSS Files on Your Server

Now that you have your website’s HTML and CSS files, it’s time to put them on a server to make your website live. You can use any web hosting services like GoDaddy, Bluehost, or HostGator.

First, you’ll need to connect to your server using an FTP client like FileZilla. Once connected, navigate to your website’s root directory and upload your HTML and CSS files there.

Step 5: Test Your Website

Once your files are on the server, it’s time to test out your website. Enter your website’s URL into a browser and go through every page to make sure everything is working correctly.

Remember, it’s always a good practice to test your website on different devices and browsers to make sure it’s fully responsive and compatible.


So there you have it – an easy-to-follow guide on how to publish your Figma website. While it may seem complicated at first, with a little practice, you’ll be able to easily convert your Figma designs into fully functional websites. Happy designing!
