I’m working on a project and hoping to save out a .json file based on the size / position of frames in a page. My hope is that the save panel could default to the correct file location, rather than the last save location, as correcting it every time could be a real pain (we can guarantee folks will be using the plugin in figma desktop).
Does this sound at all possible?
I’ll also note that I currently having it roughly working in a pretty hacky two step process.
- User runs figma plugin, which copies json data to clipboard
- User runs bash script, which checks relevant file out for edit in version control, and pastes clipboard contents into .json file.
This is okay, but feels very duct-taped together, so hoping I could find a more streamlined, foolproof solution. Another route I could imagine is getting the bash script to automatically trigger the figma plugin, but not sure if figma plugins can be triggered from the terminal?
