Framer X: the hype, the powers, the challenges and the grand vision

almost 5 years ago from , Founder at jimu Labs

Framer is teasing us with a movie trailer, but not much details. That's not fair! We deserve to know more! :)

So I stepped up and took some bold guesses. It's been a lot of fun speculating and writing about it. Hope you like too!

As seen on UXPlanet: Framer X: the hype, the powers, the challenges and the grand vision, A pure speculation

What are your predictions?

BTW: This shows my speculation process. :D

    I was at the Facebook London Framer meetup a few weeks ago, and we were lucky enough to see a preview of Framer X. Obviously I'm not going to betray their trust and talk about what I saw before they release, but I can say that at a cursory glance, there are some things you've got right on your scribbles..

    I'm REALLY looking forward to this release after seeing what I saw. I think it's going to help teams immensely, and reduce the design / developer gap even more.

      Just curious - when you say design/developer gap - is it for specific platform? Let say if it's about Android and iOS, is it something Framer X will cover?

        I believe it will reduce the gap no matter the platform

        Hey Taylor! Nice to see you here!

        My guess is that it'd be React/React Native only at least for V1. Android/iOS native would be totally a different beast to support.

        Then it'd be really good if they find a way to sync/generate Android layouts. Android Studio will perhaps never become a tool for designers... just saying. :)

          Hey Linton! It's been a while!

          Yeah, I am having the same thought, but wanted to see if they have something else under the sleeve since they emphasize on the designer-developer collaboration, although I wouldn't expect everything will be covered, but at least if there is something to reduce the gap/improve the flow, that'd a good start :)

      yup. I'm not able to go. Would someone who manages to attend come back and tell me how much I was right (and wrong)? :) Unless they have a NDA in place.
