Extract / Export CSS for development feature
Nothing more complected simply add Extract css from design as given in illustrator its very important other wise now day's it's simple to design in XD and very difficult to Develop application from xd assets because of no css export option in it, Please include this.
With the August 2019 release, we’ve enabled the ability for developers to copy css attributes from design specs links.
Thanks for the support and keep the feedback coming on how we can further deliver more value through such code snippets in XD
Can you stop it from generating var--unnammed-xxxx in every single damn line of CSS?
This is ridiculous.
Please add it
We need more easy ays to do this. It is far from implemented
I would like this capability WITHOUT having to go through Share Mode. Our corporate policy restricts sharing links on the creative cloud.
It does not give CSS option when exported for iOS or Andriod, just shows for Web
Most unhelpful. Put this fundamental damn feature inside the XD app.
I can't find this in XD Link
Where is this feature in Xd?

Where did this go to?

This was implemented in a very strange way. I received sketch files, not links. I need to access the CSS myself. This was easy to do with Lunacy, why is it such an obscure thing for Adobe XD?
Really need this feature; This dev is not completed from all the comments i see: Need the export as a whole not just one element at a time
Please include export HTML, CSS option in XD. Otherwise its better to use Illustrator Instead. HTML/CSS conversion is a boring job and may are doing that manually by seeing the UI design. I expected that XD may have included the feature. Bad luck, No I feel Photoshop is far better.. :D
Copying css from a single element makes no sense. Isn't it more simple to place a button with "export css" which automatically renders a css file with ALL of the css styles from an artboard? It took me a while to even understand where this "enabled feature" is... Honestly, it was a waste of time for your developers.
Guys we are not asking for a lot here.
I see that you say you've completed this, but copying the CSS style for every single element on the artboard one at a time, individually, laboriously, exhaustingly, uselessly to a CSS file is a weak solution, and that's being nice.
Your implementation is unreasonable and useless for developers who need to build CSS stylesheets for the whole page.
Build a real HTML/CSS export feature into the app, and quit wasting our time with dribbles and bits of useless nonsense.
To tie this back to how most design systems are managed in code, it would be great if various tokens in the assets panel (like colours for example) could be downloaded as LESS, SCSS or CSS variables. Then, when selecting an element in the canvas , the SCSS render could reference that variable. For example, if in the assets panel you named a colour "primary", when selecting an element on the canvas that references that colour, the SCSS output would reference "primary" instead of the hex code value.
An update on where we are standing today? Since the feature started in november 2018. This would be a big step forward for XD. But waiting too long with this feature.......
Please, add it. This update is really needed.

This is a huge feature, for what i'm concerned other basic functionalities have prior...like hover, component animations etc... but hells yes to the ability to do this... i've been providing such extensive documentation to external parties when a simple generate would solve my documentation issues for 75%, of course a perfect export isn't feasible imo but a simple html structure would in fact reduce a serious amount of work.
