My project works perfectly on Framer Studio but when I open it on Safari I get all my layers shown at once and clicking each layer just does a bounce / spring animation.
Also, when I put it on a public folder and try to load it on my iPhone I just get a black screen.
What am I doing wrong? I want to share this with my client and don't have to have him download Studio.

any errors in the web inspector console?

Mike Feldstein

is it hosted anywhere we can see?

Edward Sanchez

It looks like my app.js is not being compiled, so it just loads the "demo"

Edward Sanchez

Do I have to do that manually somehow?

Mike Feldstein

You shouldn't. Framer Studio projects compile the coffeescript in the browser.

Mike Feldstein

Are you opening it via a server, or just double clicking the index file?

Edward Sanchez

Double clicking index

Mike Feldstein

Ah i think that may be the issue, you need to run it via a server, either using something like cactus, or if you're familiar with the command line you can just run "python -m SimpleHTTPServer

Edward Sanchez

oh, had no idea. Will look into it then - thank you!

Edward Sanchez

Tried to get cactus and the Framer template but there are no instructions on how to use it. Ended up using http://js2coffee.org and editing the app.js manually. Couldn't Framer Studio do this automatically?

Edward Sanchez

haha ok thank you!!

Mike Feldstein

Sorry i took it down. I'm still trying to get it ready for mass consumption.

Edward Sanchez

If there's little or well guided setup, I'm totally up for using it with an editor + browser. I'm a designer and only just started programming 3 days ago, so I need a lot of hand-holding with new tools.

Have you tried just uploading it to Dropbox? That's a nice easy way to share with people without messing with servers etc...

Edward Sanchez

Yeah I upload to Dropbox and load it on device but because the JS file never got compiled from the coffee file, it doesn't load the right thing.
