I know Framer is used primarily for mobile app prototyping but I've been using it for web app prototyping and I keep running into the same issue - does anyone have a good way to handle simple Stack view style behavior in Framer?

For example I have a Nav menu where I want to expand one item and have the others slide down into the correct position.

This always seems to devolve into a mess of logic to recalculate the y positions of the layers. I want to be able to stack a group of layers and have them reposition intelligently when other layers in the stack change - which is the behavior the HTML provides by default.

This module helps you with that:

Tom, let me know if you get this working. I went the "mess of logic" route, and it's a pain

Like an accordion? Check out Jonas Treub's solution here:

Andrew More like a folder structure or nested tree (i.e. Google Drive, where you have folders with subfolders)

Its really just dealing with events... have each layer have a buddy layer and have it tell it's buddy to change if it changes.

Danaan Clarke like this?
