Congratulations @daniel_destefanis πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ That's a great job! I have 2 questions Where did you start for building this kind of plugin? Have you a plan to add a feature like "prettier for figma"
@flexbox Thank you! So I actually started small with building my team at Discord a plugin for theming. We have two themes (light and dark) and creating designs for both wasn't efficient. It would loop over a design and update all colors that had a mapping (dark to light) and create a light theme design for us. After realizing what was possible with the Figma API and having a bit of a background in Front End, the idea of a linter came to mind. I wanted a way confidently say "ok this design is ready for development" or "ok another designer can pick up this file from me". Prettier is a great idea honestly. There are some great plugins out there from the community like Clean Up, which helps automatically fix or tidy up your files!
@daniel_destefanis Thanks for the input! And did you use a particular setup to scaffhold the plugin?
@flexbox Yes it's built off of which provides the basic sample plugin but with react, typescript, etc.
Amazing work, Daniel!

@divjpatel Wow that's incredible! Yes please do! My goal was this to be a resource for design teams of all sizes. Can you let me know localization is an issue while you use it?
@daniel_destefanis Didn't encounter any issues while using it. I will keep you posted if the community ( has some feedback. Are you up for an AMA session with the community?
