Penpot doesn’t have an importer for Figma files yet. It is in our plans though, along with the Sketch importer, but we still need to develop some key capabilities like autolayout to go for them properly.
In the meantime the best option is to export your Figma files or objects to SVG and then import them to Penpot.
ON the Penpot team, we have started to evaluate this increase in the interest on building Figma importers. We had a meeting like yesterday and we still need to talk a bit more to define our course of action to better help make this happen.
It is really something to see all this interest an will to contribute. We hope to share news very soon, please stay tuned
I found some kind of open-source API called https://opendesign.dev/ which gets data from Figma, Sketch, XD, Illustrator, Photoshop. I would love to see Penpot being able to convert those files as well.
