How to create your own Fastn Color Scheme from Figma json

It happens quite often that we get a hold of some nice color-scheme package which we believe would look good on our pages but we don’t want to use the same color-scheme as it is. Sometimes, we want to do some tweaks on top of that already good looking color-scheme and create our own super awesome color-scheme specific for our websites.

In ftd, you can create your own color-scheme package from the exported fastn color-scheme json generated from figma. If you have come here, you might be already familiar with using fastn color-scheme json in Figma using Token Studio for Figma plugin. If not, then visit this guide.

Let’s say we want to modify forest-cs colors and create our own dark-forest-cs

Install figma tokens plugin

If you already have this Token Studio for figma (Figma Tokens) plugin installed, then awesome. If not, then visit the above link.

Open your Figma file

You can use any of your existing figma file or create a new one as shown below.
In this tutorial, I will be using the same figma file which I used in this tutorial guide

Download forest-cs.json file

Download the below json code as a new json file named forest-cs.json by clicking on the download icon in the code-block below.

Note: You can also get this json from its color documentation

forest-cs.json

Load forest-cs.json in figma plugin

Once you have launched your figma tokens plugin, head to Tools -> Load from File/Folder or Preset as shown below
Then under File tab, click on Choose File option
It will show a File picker, open your forest-cs.json file which you saved as shown below.
Then tick the forest-cs-light checkbox to set the light color-scheme in your page.

Check your component colors

You will notice that the rectangle is using this color: Background Colors -> base inside your figma plugin once you select the rectangle as shown below.
And text is using this color: Standalone Colors -> text

Let’s modify some colors

Guess what we don’t like any of these two colors at all in this light color scheme.

Let’s say we want the Background Colors -> base to be some light green color (for eg. #90EE90) instead of the boring white :(

To do this, right click on the current active color circle i.e Background Colors -> base and click on Edit token option as shown below
You will see this window once you hit Edit token option. On this window, edit the Color value to this #90EE90 (for light green color) then hit Save button as shown below.
Similarly, select the text-block and edit its color by right-clicking on its color circle i.e Standalone Colors -> text as shown below
Now change this color by changing its Color value to #0b5394 (for blue color) then hit Save button
This looks much better now :)
After doing such color modifications, you might want to save your color-scheme as a fastn color-scheme package. For this, we can convert this json generated from this color-scheme to FTD code which we can use in our fastn color-scheme package.

Let’s convert json to FTD

To export your color-scheme as json, click on Export to File/Folder under Tools in your Figma Tokens plugin as shown below.
After doing that, copy the json from the preview section as shown below.
As you can see, this json is for light color-scheme. Similarly copy the dark color-scheme json from preview section and make one json after merging both jsons.
And paste this merged json in the text-box below.
Change to FTD
FTD code
Copy
None
You will see the generated FTD code. Copy this FTD code by clicking on the copy icon at the top of the code-block above.

Go to the sailing-shark-cs github repository

This repo is a template repo for fastn color-schemes, we will create our own color-scheme repo using this. To visit this repo, click here

To do that, click on the Use this template button then Create a new repository as shown below
Fill your repository details as shown below, then click on Create repository from template button.
Wait for a while, after that you will see your color-scheme repository created using this template like this:
But before you can use this repo, you need to do setup some things

Modify the FASTN.ftd

Change the fastn.package and download-base-url based on your repo name and username as shown below.
To edit this file, hit the edit icon as shown below and make your changes
Like this
When you are done updating the contents, scroll down and save changes by committing directly on the main branch as shown below.

Modify index.ftd

Just like we updated FASTN.ftd, update the import for the colors based on your username and repository name as shown below.
Like this

Modify colors.ftd

Go to your colors.ftd file in your repo and click on the edit button

Then Paste your copied FTD code.

Scroll down and commit directly to the main branch by press on Commit changes button as shown below.

Activate github pages

Now to activate github pages (gh-pages) go to Settings as shown below
Go to Pages tab
Then select the Source to Deploy from the branch and select the branch to gh-pages, then hit Save as shown below.

Preview your color-scheme in action

Go to your (<github-username>.github.io/<repo>) page to see your color-scheme in action.

In my case, my color-scheme will be deployed at heulitig.github.io/my-color-scheme as shown below
Congratulations you have completed this tutorial.

forest-cs.json

Load forest-cs.json in figma plugin

Once you have launched your figma tokens plugin, head to Tools -> Load from File/Folder or Preset as shown below
Then under File tab, click on Choose File option
It will show a File picker, open your forest-cs.json file which you saved as shown below.
Then tick the forest-cs-light checkbox to set the light color-scheme in your page.

Check your component colors

You will notice that the rectangle is using this color: Background Colors -> base inside your figma plugin once you select the rectangle as shown below.
And text is using this color: Standalone Colors -> text

Let’s modify some colors

Guess what we don’t like any of these two colors at all in this light color scheme.

Let’s say we want the Background Colors -> base to be some light green color (for eg. #90EE90) instead of the boring white :(

To do this, right click on the current active color circle i.e Background Colors -> base and click on Edit token option as shown below
You will see this window once you hit Edit token option. On this window, edit the Color value to this #90EE90 (for light green color) then hit Save button as shown below.
Similarly, select the text-block and edit its color by right-clicking on its color circle i.e Standalone Colors -> text as shown below
Now change this color by changing its Color value to #0b5394 (for blue color) then hit Save button
This looks much better now :)
After doing such color modifications, you might want to save your color-scheme as a fastn color-scheme package. For this, we can convert this json generated from this color-scheme to FTD code which we can use in our fastn color-scheme package.

Let’s convert json to FTD

To export your color-scheme as json, click on Export to File/Folder under Tools in your Figma Tokens plugin as shown below.
After doing that, copy the json from the preview section as shown below.
As you can see, this json is for light color-scheme. Similarly copy the dark color-scheme json from preview section and make one json after merging both jsons.
And paste this merged json in the text-box below.
Change to FTD
FTD code
Copy
None
You will see the generated FTD code. Copy this FTD code by clicking on the copy icon at the top of the code-block above.

Go to the sailing-shark-cs github repository

This repo is a template repo for fastn color-schemes, we will create our own color-scheme repo using this. To visit this repo, click here

To do that, click on the Use this template button then Create a new repository as shown below
Fill your repository details as shown below, then click on Create repository from template button.
Wait for a while, after that you will see your color-scheme repository created using this template like this:
But before you can use this repo, you need to do setup some things

Modify the FASTN.ftd

Change the fastn.package and download-base-url based on your repo name and username as shown below.
To edit this file, hit the edit icon as shown below and make your changes
Like this
When you are done updating the contents, scroll down and save changes by committing directly on the main branch as shown below.

Modify index.ftd

Just like we updated FASTN.ftd, update the import for the colors based on your username and repository name as shown below.
Like this

Modify colors.ftd

Go to your colors.ftd file in your repo and click on the edit button

Then Paste your copied FTD code.

Scroll down and commit directly to the main branch by press on Commit changes button as shown below.

Activate github pages

Now to activate github pages (gh-pages) go to Settings as shown below
Go to Pages tab
Then select the Source to Deploy from the branch and select the branch to gh-pages, then hit Save as shown below.

Preview your color-scheme in action

Go to your (<github-username>.github.io/<repo>) page to see your color-scheme in action.

In my case, my color-scheme will be deployed at heulitig.github.io/my-color-scheme as shown below
Congratulations you have completed this tutorial.
