Get updates

Import updates from your data sources when changes are made in the source file.

Supernova automatically checks for changes from your design system data source periodically. If you made an update in Figma, and would like to check for changes immediately, or you have autoupdate turned off and would like to update your design system manually, you can also fetch an update on demand.

Latest updates

The Latest Updates column displays the most recently imported changes from your Figma file, including the status of the import, and when the latest updates happened.

Updating a data source

You can enable automatic updates (autoupdate) by turning on the autoupdate toggle button for the relevant data source. You can also enable it by selecting Enable autoupdate in the context menu.



If you enabled automatic updates, Supernova will regularly check for changes and update the design system automatically.


You can manually update the design system by clicking the Get All Updates button.
