New UI for Figma

What did I do this week?

This week was focused on refactoring the Figma Plugin and giving the UI a new look. The current Figma UI is quite broad, icons appear crowded, and the overall look is not professional. I started with a fresh repository and also copied the modal changes which I implemented last week. Designing the UI was not an easy task. I had to take the current plugin designs in the Figma Marketplace and try to understand a common design interface. After designing I started to implement the design. The implementation was time taking as Figma takes around 2 minutes to fetch the current updated code. I had to continue waiting after making the modifications repeatedly.

Finally, a new UI was developed. They were well received by my mentors after I showed them the new UI. Now is the time to update the current plugin with a newer feel and look.

What is coming up next?

In the upcoming week, I will start working on the EOS Icons Website (under-development) on NextJs to add the information regarding to both the Plugins so that visiting users can download our plugin.

Did I get stuck anywhere?
