Overview of creating apps from Figma (preview)
[This article is pre-release documentation and is subject to change.]
The ability to create apps from Figma design files directly helps bridge the gap between design and development by accelerating the app UI development process. It allows developers and designers to collaborate effectively and efficiently to deliver great end user experiences with low cost and effort.
Designers can create designs in Figma using the Create Apps from Figma UI Kit, which provides supported components for Power Apps and includes detailed instructions for how to use the kit. Once the designs are created, simply provide the link to the Figma design file and Power Apps will generate a new canvas app based on those designs. The design frames are automatically converted into screens in Power Apps. Once the app UI is ready, you can extend this app by connecting to data, adding app logic, adding more screens and controls.
Step 1 - Before you start designing, read the instructions from the Create Apps from Figma UI Kit about what's supported and what isn't supported.
Step 2 - In Figma, you'll design your app on this page, which contains instructions and guidance for how to work with supported components.
Step 3 - In Power Apps, you'll convert the app. You'll do this by providing a Figma link and token.
Step 4 - After conversion, you'll take some next steps that will make your app even more interactive and useful.
- This is a preview feature.
- Preview features aren’t meant for production use and may have restricted functionality. These features are available before an official release so that customers can get early access and provide feedback.
