    It is just as capable as Figma and nice to use as Figma, but is open source and free so I can collaborate with others without worrying about subscription plans or owning my own data in the future.

    Penpot has most basic Figma features, and it's growing at an impressive rate. It's finally a good free software tool for software design.

    Latest Lunacy feels just like clone of Figma, but works offline and has lack of additional plugins and libraries, but it's not functional features.
