Is the .fig file format property IP?
The Other design tools (sketch & adobe xd) file format is just a zip file containing JSON data.
If it isn’t property IP and just like other design tools (sketch & adobe xd) Figma doesn’t want to document the file format, which is understandable because it is a technical debt on your side.
It will be helpful to just give the community a hint on how the .fig file is constructed and I think the community will be able to easily reverse engineer the full file format specification.
As it has some use-cases for example:
- Archiving Figma files offline in case the Figma online goes out of service.
- Cross convert between file formats offline.
