Export treating Frames as Folders

A Figma Library might consist of a “Page” with several “Frames” that each contain several “Components”.

Problem: Exporting all of the components in this Library requires exporting each frame separately and manually organizing them into folders afterward.

Solution: It would be great if Figma had a “Treat Frames as Folders” export option that so every frame would be exported as a folder and the contents within each frame would be exported as files. This could all be done with a single click instead of needing a separate export operation for each frame on the page.

(This is effectively happening in the “Assets” panel already, it’s just not available when exporting.)

Taking this a step further, an “Include nested frames” option could allow provide the ability to create hierarchy of folders to be created on export based on frames within frames.
