    Pros: 

    Design+Code possibilities

    Cons: 

    Not suited yet for sharing and getting feedback

    Framer X can be very powerful on a lot of things. React brings liberty and the prototyping features are outstanding.

    But, we still miss the collaborative part on the prototypes (e.g what possibilities brings Sketch+InVision

  • Pros: 

    Awesome tool.

    Cons: 

    Still so many annoying bugs. Steep learning curve.

    I hope the beta version ends soon, as a product that you have to pay for it, it seems a bit unacceptable to have so many bugs.

    Raul Shonen has used this product for one week.

@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?

@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...

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?
