Lunacy is almost like Figma, but faster. It is a native app, not a sluggish Electron-wrapped browser pretending to be an app. And it can work offline. Here’re some tips on how to migrate from Figma to Lunacy.

Why Lunacy

  • Works online and offline on Windows, macOS, and Linux.
  • Has all the basic features, except for auto layout (coming soon!): collaboration, components, styles, etc. Check out the full comparison.
  • Readily handles huge files of several gigabytes in size. No more annoying loading indicator!

How to migrate

All you need is to convert Figma files to .sketch. You can consider the following three options:

  • Convertify. Figma plugin. Сonverts first 10 files for free.
  • Avocode. Free online converter. Requires a Figma access token.
  • XD2Sketch. Pricing starts from $84/file with a limit of 50 artboards. There are also bundles with unlimited artboards and prices ranging from $165 to $445.

Both free converters work fine, but there can be issues with components.

Convertify

Components remain components, but they don’t show up and appear as placeholders.

Other possible issues:

  • Broken links with other files, design systems and their components.
  • Fills can appear on masked layers. In such a case, you’ll need to remove the fills manually.

Convertify thinks for a while and then outputs a sketch file.

Avocode

The converter is available for free. It requires your Figma access token. Here’s how you can get it:

Avocode is really a great tool for converting Figma files to .sketch. But it turns components into groups.

XD2Sketch

XD2Sketch is an option for the guys with fat wallets. We didn’t try it. But they say that it works fine.
