Explorative Tool for Designer BUT not practical at all

Pros: Gives you the ability to produce elements and products exactly the way you design them. Allows you to open yourself up to learning Dev/Code. Creates empathy and understanding of what Dev Team goes through when implementing your designs

Cons: Not really that practical. If you think about the time you invest in learning a separate code language from what your Devs know, it requires a lot of initial investment on the designer to learn this language. Creates a weird relationship between you and your Dev Team because at times they expect much more out of your coding skills, and also creates this notion that you can do half of their job. Takes a lot away in the collaborative process that is crucial between Devs and Design to be able to come up with great solutions. Components created are often of no use due to constraints Devs have on coding guidelines in a company and often end up in wasted time.

Overall: I tried to use Framer as a way to collaborate more with my devs and make their work easier. I found the exact opposite. Although what framer does is amazing and gives your design actual pulse and life, it also is not practical in the flow of Product Teams IMO. The investment it takes to learn coffeeScript in order to use Framer is really heavy. For me, it also took away a lot of the creative process. It had me thinking more of what we were constrained to, instead of what was possible. There should be a good mix of both with any product, but I felt Framer took away all creative thinking and made me feel like I needed to find what could fit in the frame. Also felt like it distanced me from my Dev team. The expectations that I could produce great, fully-functioning components were increasing and got some resentment that since I could technically produce front-end elements, that they didn't need to focus on Front-End Dev anymore. Overall, fun and explorative tool in the industry but again, just not a practical tool to use in today's product world.

Pros: The most fascinating part about Framer is that you can make the prototype close to real product. This is great for scenarios where sophistication in prototype is highly necessary. I love the level of control it gives to designer.

Cons: The interface and workflow are still a bit intimidating for users which keeps many designers away from this power tool.

Overall: Learning Framer was one of the best decisions I made. It just made my workflow easier and efficient. Certainly Framer adds a great value to anyone's resume.

Pros: Framer allows me to build advance, high fidelity prototypes, at a rapid pace. Unlike other prototyping tools, Framer lets you use code for advance interactions in order to create realistic animations and interactions. Not only does Framer has a code editor, but it also functions as a complete design tool so you can both design and prototype all inside the same tool.

Cons: While Framer is very powerful, it also has a steep learning curve. You'll need to understand coding basics, and put in a lot of effort at first. Fortunately, there is a great community around Framer that is willing to help. Just simply go to their Facebook page, ask a question, and you can usually get help from the community pretty quickly.

Overall: With Framer I have built high fidelity prototypes, saved them on my phone, and tested those prototypes with users. Because the prototypes can be incredibly realistic, testers often think it's a real app thus producing more realistic feedback and results.

Pros: It's code based so you have all the power to build any animation for your prototype.

Framer allows you to speak one language with a developer when it comes to animations.

Cons: It requires knowledge of basic programming and this may stop many designers to switch on this tool.

Pros: I love their new features the convert your prototype to react. And can be use a javascript libraries which is for me this is great a designer and javascript developer implement your design.

Cons: The Price but i understand great product must be maintain also the design i think Framer can focus on interactive prototype tool not a design tools.

Overall: This is great product specially for designer who want to implement their design into prototype to showcase and less learning curve and the documentation is so easy to understand.
