Best Figma Plugins 2022

Here’s the list of the best Figma plugins of 2022 that are still the top choices for Figma designers. 

  • Autoflow
  • Figmotion
  • LottieFiles
  • Design Lint

Design lint

An open-source Figma plugin will keep you away from design inconsistencies. Indeed, creating a design takes a lot of design thinking. While doing that, we may miss out on small details in the design. On the other hand, Design Lint corrects all the inconsistencies in your design with a single click.

The Figma plugin checks for any mismatched elements like fonts, fills, colors, strokes, border-radius, and more. One great thing about this Figma plugin is that it works dynamically. So when you make any corrections while building the design, as a result, it will automatically follow the corrections you made.


Here’s a Figma plugin that works as a GIF bank for you. You get access to thousands of Lottie animations. These fun animations bring life to your Figma designs. All you need to do is drag and drop the .lottie and Lottie.JSON files into your designs. You can upload your .lottie  and .JSON files and also get access to animations previewed in the Lottiefiles.

Also, you can add animations in Figma such as high-quality GIFs and SVGs to your design.


Figmotion allows you to create animations directly in Figma. Designers, you don’t need to use third-party apps anymore. It allows the developers to easily manage the animations as they are built, keeping in mind the web technology.

It is super easy to use. And in a few simple steps, you can create animations for your UI designs. Therefore, you don’t need to be an expert in animation to use this Figma plugin. Apply the properties you need for the Figma animation, defining the functions and timings, and your GTG!

How to use Figmotion:

  • Open the plugin
  • Select your frame.
  • Choose the configurations you need.
  • It should export the video to your design.


While building the design process, you must illustrate the user flow or the user journey. Therefore, it will help you and everyone else understand your design’s user flow. And Autoflow helps you connect two frames with a line or a connector and make the perfect user flow of your design. In short, creating a flow between the two represents a clear idea of the user flow. Moreover, it is a quick and easy way to create user flows. You can create them in no time by creating shapes and connecting them.

And the best part about this Figma plugin is that if you move the shapes or frames around the design, it will automatically update the flow. And there’s no need to apply the plugin every time you make any changes.

How to create a user flow

  • Open the autoflow Figma plugin.
  • Select the color, strokes, and terminal settings.
