Missing properties vectorNetwork and vectorPaths of VectorNode via ExportSettingsREST result

I was trying to export all VectorNode properties via ExportSettingsREST, but vectorNetwork or vectorPaths are missing - it’s impossible to reproduce vector node in my app.

Result of export:

There is no bug here, because such properties do not exist in the REST API. Please see the developer documentation:
https://www.figma.com/developers/api#vector-props

Right, there are missing in REST API. So how can I export VectorNode data, like paths?

Plugin API:
Just get the desired node properties directly.

Plugin API in combination with ExportSettingsREST:
Get the ID of the desired node from JSON output, get the node by ID and get its properties.

REST API:
Add a geometry query parameter. For example: geometry=paths
https://www.figma.com/developers/api#path-type

Thanks for replay @tank666 !

It doesn’t resolve my issue. I need to be “file agnostic” (different nodes IDs). I send result of ExportSettingsREST to my backend, and I have to reproduce nodes in another file based on it.
If there is no native support I have to use custom solution, like you suggest :man_shrugging:

I, of course, do not know all the details of your case, but why can’t you send the received node properties (via getNodeById method) along with JSON REST output to your backend?

I have the same question :slight_smile:

vectorNetwork is not exists on Figma REST API for VECTOR type node

Same as pluginData for instance :wink: You need to find node and copy additional data on your own.

For example, aftre get data from ExportSettingsREST i traverse whole JSON with nodes, and add there additional data:

private static injectVectorPaths(json: Object, node: FrameNode): void {
    if (!('findAllWithCriteria' in node)) return;

    const vectors = node.findAllWithCriteria({
      types: ['VECTOR'],
    });

    vectors.forEach((vector) => {
      const { vectorPaths, strokeGeometry, id } = vector;
      const path = this.findPathToId(json, id, []);

      if (vectorPaths?.length) {
        set(json, [...path, 'fillGeometry'], vectorPaths);
      }

      if (strokeGeometry?.length) {
        set(json, [...path, 'strokeGeometry'], strokeGeometry);
      }
    });
  }

Thanks a lot Adrian
