Edit the UI with the REST API

Hi,

I am currently trying to use the REST API to communicate with Figma to edit the layout and the components of a UI in Figma. From the documentation of the REST API, it seems like I can only GET information about the UI but there is nothing to POST any changes to the layout.

Is there a way to edit the layout from my Figma file with POST requests ?

Thanks

No, there is no way to do that. Only the plugins API could edit the document.
