@allenleein @ozgrozer I'm still not sure what it does....
@allenleein Framer is a high fidelity prototyping tool. Framer X means that it will now work in a production environment using React.

@allenleein @shuenw I use Framer and React, and I still don't get it. What does a "production environment using React" mean? Is it going to output to React Native or something?
Tomas Hertus
@allenleein @shuenw What does "production environment" mean? Do I get the ease of framer in conjunction with react-native? Am I going to be able get finalized applications from FramerX? I mean, I really like the framework and have been using it for prototyping, but I don't understand the hype around nice website without clear value prop...

@ozgrozer Thanks Ozgur, but im still have no idea ....

Most exciting React news of the year, I can't wait for 14k people to get it before myself <3
please make use of React Semantic UI components !
I love using Framer and I love React. My biggest complaint of the last year has been the inefficiencies of coding something in Framer and then having to recode it in React. I hope this allows me to create actual react components in Framer and pull down existing ones from production. Design could be entirely responsible for the front end. Dreamy...

@matthewkulp That's been my issue with Framer, working in a small team at least. It takes time to code things in Framer, only to have developers recode it again. (And often inaccurately) If I can connect Framer X with our React component repo, use those components to quickly lay out a prototype – therefore, always using latest versions – and then on top of that create custom designs and interactions, that seems like interaction designer's dream. Although I'm not fully clear on how it will _actually_ work. Wish there was a simple prototype/demo. The video seems to just showcase Design tool?
@darko_stanimirovic completely agree
Gary Fung
Why? There's already
Stepan Kacirek
@garyfung Did you also tried
Gary Fung
@stepnn no I haven't
Darko Stanimirović
@garyfung There was already Photoshop, so why Sketch? Or, there was already Sketch, why Figma or InVision Studio?
Gary Fung
@darko_stanimirovic Because React Studio for one isn't old and doesn't look like a kitchen sink of suck, and this Framer X isn't showing me anything new of substance on why is it awesome. The video here is almost all marketing fluff, and hence seems just a me too. Disclaimer: I haven't used React Studio or this, I'm just opining on what I'm seeing. I'm in the weeds with React Native for @WonderSwipe so I'd love to try UI prototyping tool for RN, not React (web)
great prototype tool !
Why isn't this launching in fall if it's only coming out then?

My speculations here :).
