The powerful Design-to-Code, Figma-to-Code tool, FUNCTION12.
In early 2022, FUNCTION12 started, by hinting at the chance in this market.
There are numerous tools and products that offer converting designs to codes. However, it was clear to us that no Design-to-Code handoff tool existed that could fulfill what this market truly needed. With the determination to build what can save so many developers’ time around the world, we had no time to waste but proceed with the product build.
With the history of several product developments, we were also a user of a Design-to-Code tool as well. Coding the design component one by one was not only time-consuming but made the project time span lag greatly. We tested various Design-to-Code tools, and although many were helpful in some ways, we always ended up going back to coding from scratch. The dilemma of redundant coding and the unsatisfactory tool always resided in our team. Therefore, the product that we were eager to build to fulfill our needs, was also what this market needs as well.
Compared to other similar services, our solution was taking a different approach from scratch, from producing developer-level code to interpreting the Figma design. After coming up with such a solution, it automatically became our goal to make a product that can provide high-quality codes than our competitors.
Seed Fund Raise
Luckily, our VCs also agreed with our vision and solution and we were able to raise our seed fund. With such a fund, we were able to focus on our development to take our first step in accomplishing our dream.
Arnal Dayaratna, a research director at IDC, has reported, "The overall developer population is forecast to grow from 26.2 million in 2020 to 43.2 million in 2025.” With the rapidly growing number of developers around the world, the FUNCTION12 team is dedicated to building an innovative code automation advancement. We are eager to form a developer-friendly environment and most importantly, become a globally essential SaaS in the development field.
