Figma is one of my favorite design tools.
Don’t get me wrong, I love every single design tool out there since it moves the whole UX industry forward.
But it is a fact that Figma allows literally everyone to start getting their hands dirty with designs and prototypes because it a) has a flat learning curve and b) it has a free plan -that does the job most of the time.
So yes, there are other better design tools out there but the scope of this post is not to compare and contrast design tools so let’s get to the point.
Figma’s decision to open a plugins’ repository was, imo, the dawn of a new era since It gives its users and 3rd party developers the power to take Figma to the next level.
