Figma launched their Web Platform API which allows developers to build on top of and extend the features of their web-based design tool. They also published a quick post about the release that showcases how design teams at Uber and GitHub are starting to use the API but they also dig into a few public extensions that are available to use today.
AirBnB is also all over it. No surprise as they seem to be leading the industry in creating, extending, and integrating design tooling.
Our friends at Figma recently opened up the first layer of their API to the public. Their cloud-based, multiplayer-by-default design tool is the perfect environment for considering Design Intelligence as an agent that, much like a colleague, could truly exist alongside us.
We’ve been having fun playing with it for the past few months, building workflow tools we once only dreamed of.
