How To Use Figma With React

Figma, a widely-used tool among designers worldwide, has revolutionized the collaboration between designers and developers. However, for those unfamiliar with either tool, the process of integrating Figma designs into a React application may seem overwhelming. In this blog post, we will demonstrate how Figma can be effectively utilized with React to design visually appealing interfaces for web applications.

Understanding Figma

Figma is essentially a UI/UX design application that provides a digital design and prototyping space. It operates in the cloud and allows for seamless collaboration between designers and developers. It also offers a feature to export designs as CSS, making it a perfect fit for creating React components.

Preparing Figma Designs for React

To begin with, you need to carefully structure your Figma designs to match the component structure in your React application. Each component in Figma should represent a single React component. Group together elements that belong to the same component.

Exporting CSS from Figma

Once you have structured your designs, you can export them as CSS. Simply select the component or group that you want to export, and go to the ‘Inspect’ panel. Choose ‘CSS’ from the dropdown and click on ‘Copy’. Now the CSS properties of your design are stored in your clipboard and are ready to be pasted in your React application.

Creating React Components

Now that you have your CSS properties copied, let’s create a React component. Here is a simple example of a button component. The CSS properties copied from Figma would be written inside the style attribute of the respective HTML element(s).

        import React from 'react';

        const Button = () => {
            return (
                <button style="{{" backgroundcolor: color: fontsize: padding: borderradius: border:>
                    Click Me

        export default Button;

The style attribute accepts an object where the properties are camelCased versions of CSS attributes. Make sure to replace kebab-case CSS properties with camelCase before pasting them in your React component.


Using Figma with React is a great way to ensure consistency between the designs and the final application. It allows for seamless collaboration between designers and developers, greatly reducing the time and effort required to translate design into code. With Figma and React, you can create stunning, pixel-perfect applications.
