    Hey Raphael, as someone who was introduced to Framer with almost no experience with code or programming, I totally get the concern about learning CoffeeScript. Continuing to remove barriers to getting started in Framer is a major goal of ours. Auto-Code was a first step, but we will be continuing to work toward this in future updates. We will, however, always be big believers in code over here. The good news is that with a little time, Framer is not all that hard to learn...I’m living proof :)

    Regarding your question about adding tutorials and tips and tricks on Framer, this is in the works! We’re hoping provide you guys some really helpful content in the near future. Stay tuned! Are there any tutorials that you find particularly helpful, from other companies or products?

      Hi Brittany, it would be fantastic if I could watch some short and focused videos like this: and this:

      The Examples page that exists in the Framer website is very good, but if you don't have experience with code, you'll need to analyze code by code in order to understand and learn how to replicate that example in their own work. Almost always (in more complicated examples) this work takes a very long time and sometimes it's quite complicated.

      IMHO, small and focused videos in small little tips (from basic to advanced) would make me move faster and get more out of Framer! :)
