    Tools like FramerJS are fun because they enable designers to show a bit more flair and get a bit scrappy in code if they want to, and its really useful for showing complex interactions. But it's whole world away from all the intricacies of a production environment.

      Yes, absolutely! (Sorry just noticed the reply notification from a month ago)

      And if you're writing production quality code for a framer prototype, you're wasting your time. The whole point of prototyping is that it is much faster than actually building the thing. It should be hastily written code that is all copy/pasted and Frankensteined together.

      In fact, I'm not even convinced Framer is the best tool most of the time. It certainly gives you a ton of power to create dynamic, complex prototypes, but something like Principle takes less than half the time and has 90% of the fidelity of a Framer prototype.
