Native files for components

Design systems don’t live inside Figma.

Often, designers maintain a library of prefab components together inside a Figma project stored in the cloud alongside a code repository that could live…anywhere.

How might we offer the same flexibility and portability of our UI components that code partials or components have?

Imagine if we were able to create a dynamic, reusable component as it’s own file that could be attached to the design system documentation the whole team uses as a file that could be downloaded and dropped into a Figma project.

Imagine being able to keep a local directory of components you can organize however you want.

Imagine storing your components in GitHub alongside your code.

Just imagine. :rainbow:
