“I’m thrilled to announce that Storybook Connect for Figma is now in beta. It’s a Figma plugin which brings your stories into the design workspace. That streamlines design handoff and UI review because teams can reference code components alongside their designs.”
One more service for publishing websites from Figma — love how vibrant that space is! Figment helps you add website effects such as videos, links, and animations to your Figma mockups. When finished, it publishes or exports your website’s code.
Makers is a Figma plugin to help you build and publish sites directly in Figma without writing any code. They even provide a few templates to speed up the process. Make sure to watch an impressive demo video.
The plugin allows you to create beautiful shadows by simply dragging a “light source,” which casts a shadow from selected elements. The shadow effect is achieved by layering and easing multiple drop-shadows to create a skeuomorphic shadow umbra and penumbra.
If you’ve ever used my tool Accessible Palette, one of its core features is support for Advanced Perceptual Contrast Algorithm (APCA) — a great alternative to a basic contrast algorithm in WCAG 2 and the current recommendation in WCAG 3 Draft. This plugin is a simple contrast checker using this algorithm and taking into account fonts size as well as background and foreground colors.
