How to design w/ real data?

July 12, 2018 at 6:29pm
Hey all! One thing I loved about Sketch + Craft was being able to design with actual .json data. It's so so helpful when doing long tables and needing to know character length and what not.
Is anybody aware of a way to do this from Figma? If we could write extensions I'd attempt to do it myself.

At the moment only an API exists to read data from Figma but hopefully soon an API will exist to write to Figma. Shouldn't think that sort of extension would be difficult to make once the API is available.

Anyone know if there's a solution to pull in data from a live url and not just a local file or google sheet? (?)
