How to backup/export/download all Figma files?

As part of our organisation roadmap, we need our organisation data to be backed up in our inhouse server at a regular interval. We are working to take the backup of Figma files along with respective projects.

We have explored the Figma API documentation (https://www.figma.com/developers/api#get-files-endpoint), where we need to manually add the file key in the api (GET/v1/files/:key), which is not ideal solution and even after adding the key, we are getting response in json format, not the file.

Could you please suggest a way how we can take incremental backup of Figma files along with respective projects? Is there any option available to Export/Download all of our Figma files?

Did you ever find a way to do this via the API?

Feel free to checkout our automated figma backup tool, Magicul Backup - Store & Backup Figma designs as Sketch, XD or Figma files.

Its a paid tool, but we directly backup to .fig files and we’re the only tool that does so.

Has anyone gotten a non-paid plugin way to do a local backup without the API?

Backup is automatic and easy with a hYCU integration

In our agency this is a real problem.
Like many other agencies we absolutely need to maintain a backup of the source files of our work over time.
The instability that a .fig file can have in restoring over time is a serious problem. If previously we retained the history of physical files such as Adobe, sketch or other, today we have no certainty of being able to restore a source file of important projects
