Designing and coding are essential parts of the modern app development process. With the rise of React as a popular JavaScript library for building dynamic user interfaces, the need for a smooth workflow between Figma and React has become crucial.

That's where Figma plugins like DhiWise and Unify come into play. These plugins aim to streamline the process of translating Figma designs into React components. In this blog, we will compare both DhiWise and Unify to help you choose the plugin that best suits your Figma to React workflow requirements.

So let's get started!

Comparing DhiWise vs Unify

DhiWise Figma to Code Plugin

DhiWise is a developer-centric web and mobile application development platform that supports multiple technologies including React, Flutter, Kotlin (Android), SwiftUI (iOS), and Node.js. The platform accelerates app development by auto-generating the code from Figma, AdobeXD, and Sketch designs. 

Moreover, it provides advanced features to simplify UI customization, API integration, Setting up actions, and more.  For developers who still need to get their designs ready, DhiWise provides prebuilt templates and screen libraries for different app scenarios.

Developers who just want to convert their Figma design to Code (React, Flutter, Kotlin, or SwiftUI) can use DhiWise Figma to Code Plugin. The plugin can generate clean code from the Figma design by auto-identifying the design components. The generated code can be customized using DhiWise or any other IDE. 

Unify Figma Plugin

The Unify Figma plugin can convert Figma components into React, React Native, and HTML/CSS code. The plugin generates flex (responsive layout) for all Figma elements with auto-layout. The plugin generates the layered tree of identified components and allows you to customize UI styling such as the position of components, typography, and more using its Unify builder. 

The plugin also provides Component Sandbox support and users can view and copy the generated code from its app builder. 

Now you know about both plugins let’s explore more about the key differences in their offerings and features. 

DhiWise vs Unify: Key features and offerings

Features DhiWise Locofy
Supported technologies for Figma design to code conversion React, Flutter, Kotlin (Android), and SwiftUI (iOS) React, React Native, HTML, and CSS
Provides Tailwind CSS support for React app development Yes Yes
Generates code for designs with interactions Yes, DhiWise can generate code for all Figma screens at once by identifying the components, and interactions attached to them. No, currently, it is not able to handle a responsive layout, so it generates code for every component and element and not the entire screen.
Enables flexible UI customization, Yes, DhiWise allows UI customization with its app builder for styling, API integration, and more. Yes, Unify allows UI customization for styling components with its app builder.
Provides pre-built templates and screen libraries for React app Yes No
Automatically generates flex layouts even if the component doesn't have auto-layout No, as it accurately identifies components and icons so, there is no need for auto-layout Yes, it auto-generates flex layout if the component does not have auto-layout
Automatically optimizes layers Yes, it removes duplicates and unnecessary elements while designing code conversion. Yes, it removes unnecessary Figma groups/frames on the element.
Supports clean code architecture Yes No

From the above feature comparison, we can clearly say that DhiWise offers more advanced features than Unify such as auto identification of screen components with high accuracy, ready-to-use templates, and UI customization flexibility with the app builder.

And most importantly it instantly generates code for single or multiple screens with responsive layout, unlike Unify which does not support code generation for responsive layout and generates code for components and not the entire screen.

Furthermore, the DhiWise platform offers the Figma to code plugin, which not only provides 24/7 support for its users but also ensures regular updates for new versions. It promptly addresses any issues related to the plugin. Conversely, Unify lacks dedicated customer support for its users.

Which Figma plugin can revolutionize your Figma to React Workflow?

Both DhiWise and Unify Figma plugins bring valuable features to the table for improving the Figma to React workflow. DhiWise excels in its automated component identification, clean code generation, flexibility to UI customization, prebuilt templates, code export capabilities, and customer support. 

However, Unify is suitable for smaller projects where code is only needed for specific components and customization of UI styling is desired.

Ultimately, the choice between the two depends on your specific requirements, preferences, and the nature of your project. Take the time to evaluate and experiment with both plugins to determine which one will truly revolutionize your Figma to React workflow.
