Has anyone used FramerJS for website prototyping? Not mobile app. Tks!

Sure, just mockup a browser instead of a mobile device, here's a quick and dirty example, a mockup for a friends side project. http://linkthegeek.com/public/code/scupost/scupost.html

Yep. I typically create the prototype for a fixed size and run in my browser of choice. Much like this I did a few months back: http://dribbble.com/shots/1287017--GIF-Edit-within-Organizer?list=users

Also, If you create an index for all your prototypes - you can call javascrip to perfectly size the prototype for your team to view.

Awesome! I created an animated prototype in Photoshop too and was hoping to find a better tool and I ran into FramerJS. http://dribbble.com/shots/1362789-Form-Animation-in-Photoshop?list=following

Most of the developers I work with are offshore so I need a better way to communicate our design decisions with them. Thanks for your help!

Craig Murray Do you live (url) examples I can see?

I've done for sites and now I've done for a TV app. Simply loved using it. Springs gave such a nice motion effect overall that I am planning on using from now on ;)

Marcelo Eduardo Oliveira do you examples of your prototype I could see?

I am doing a little tutorial on it for later. Now, it has too much "client" branding so can't share it as it is - I used for usability testing! (with a BT remote mapped as keyboard events )

But once I remove all "client" visuals, I will post it here.

Thanks! I need to see if FramerJS will serve me well. I need a prototyping tool to communicate microinteractions well. I'm using Keynote but it doesn't cut it. It works but not to the level of detail that I need. Then I thought of learning AE but it's somewhat complex.

Marcelo Eduardo Oliveira

Well, FramerJs is so flexible.. so I can't see why you would have problems with that. I made a fairly complex prototy for TV, that I can actually say that the biggest effort was not Framer, was the app itself. But Framer allowed me to animate the elements (views) in such an easy way and with such a good performance that just paid off.

This post from Cemre shows a lot of what I think you're searching for :
