Figma just launched Dev Mode and it’s really cool. There are a lot of really awesome features that make life so much easier, from having the units in rem to a bunch of new features and a VS Code plugin, plus a bunch more. Of course, there are a few negatives as well, and I take a look at it all in this video.
