Translating Design Systems from Figma to Compose
Many apps have their own design language and systems that they need to adhere to in order to offer consistency across platforms. Google has open-sourced its design system, Material Design, however, as apps and teams scale, it eventually becomes beneficial to implement own design system. In this talk drawn from my experience, I will go through how to practically implement a custom design system from FIGMA to Android using Compose. The talk guides you to understanding design tokens, extending Material Design, and implementing a custom design system away from Material. In addition, we’ll cover some things to consider when implementing a custom design system and key takeaways in building one.
