This changes everything. 🤯 With GPT-3, I built a Figma plugin to design for you. I call it "Designer"

I'm having to recreate the Automator UI in Figma because I jumped straight into code to design it lol

One thing I've found with Automator is that I'll create "throwaway" automations to do quick one-off tasks. Here's an automation I made just for this guide to rename the parent slide frame to match the title text content inside of it.

Here's a thread on some of the automations I've put together in Automator from @tricycleai ranging from simple to complex 👇

📝 Select all text: This automation uses the "Find" action to find all layers in the current page with the type text, and sets the selection to the result. The "TEXT" type comes from the Figma plugin API as the text node type figma.com/plugin-docs/api/Te…

🔄 Time Machine: This is a more complex automation that replicates my existing Time Machine plugin (figma.com/community/plugin/7…) that sends your selection to an archive page to reference for later. The original plugin code is over 150 lines, and I created this all visually.

🎉 Confetti: This automation takes your current selection and sprinkles it across the parent frame to make a confetti effect. This is another example of porting an existing Figma plugin I made called Sprinkle over to Automator: figma.com/community/plugin/7…

Lastly, here's a look at editing action properties. Each action, like creating a frame or setting auto layout, comes with properties that you can set by default.

What I love about building a general purpose tool like this is that you can build your very own custom automations that work for you and your team. The ability to share automations and explore existing automations that the community made is what I'm most excited about.

“To everyone in the technology industry: I encourage you to reconsider the word “user” and what you call the people who love what you’ve created, starting with yourselves.” @jack and Square ingrained this in my mind forever jacks.tumblr.com/post/337857…
