    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.

    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.

    Framer is actually a good alternative to Figma, has many features like webcam, text boxes and more. However it sometimes is really buggy.
