Created this little animation with little to no javascript knowledge within Framer. Thanks to some great examples I managed to get some work done. It's nothing extreme, but for me it was a great lesson. Framer really makes me want to learn javascript.

Great work, dude!

You should look into adding a subtle amount of bounce to your animations using the spring curve type. Really adds that final level of polish, in my opinion

Tim de Groot

Thanks Jackson, I commented on the dribbble post to your suggestion.

I've been scared to jump into framer. Also little / no coding bg. I do interactions in After effects. But there's no intrraction at the end.

Noam Elbaz

How long did it take you to get up and running?

Stephen Crowley

Hey Noam - check out documentation on, look at examples and just give it the ol' college try. It actually is a fun way to learn a little bit of code as well. Don't be afraid to ask any question in the group as there may be at least one other person who might have the same question.

Tim de Groot

Like Stephen said. And setting up is not the challenge, its takes a couple of minutes. Going through the documentation and examples gets you started. Creating this prototype took me roughly 3-4 evenings, but I still have a lot to learn. My prototype is very simple, just copied, pasted, adjusted and made up some snippets with logical thinking. To do more complex stuff it'll take months, years to master Javascript probably.

But the main thing is, don't be scared, just start somewhere, anywhere and the rest will follow. My understanding of javascript is already more than I ever thought it would be.

This is awesome to know. Just started saving links to start learning. Makes me feel more confident knowing you were at that level as well. Awesome prototype.

Tim de Groot

That's great, Cat! Good luck and thanks! And make sure you follow this learning playlist
