Announcing Framer Sharing
Today's update brings a new sharing feature. You can now share your project with other designers, your team or the entire internet with just one click.
Great work guys!
Fantastic guys! This is super useful :)One thing I would love to have is the ability to unshare the protos.
Really exciting! One of the reasons that Framer is so useful is that using web tech has made it really easy to share all the work done with it; a lot easier than asking someone to download another application to play with or tweak things.
Any plans to be able to peek at the code inline, like for the examples projects?
Maybe we'll add that in the future, but isn't the "open" button even better?
Definitely, just don't want my coworkers to have to download Studio/the source files to take a quick peek at the code :P
Oh but I do ;-)
Once you've shared, can you unshare?
Amy: not right now (we don't have logins/users) but urls are very random and not published (like Dropbox). That said, if you made an oops mail [email protected].
Any idea why "Check for updates..." is disabled? Running 1.9.46
It might have gotten stuck checking (it's disabled while checking). Restart Framer and try again. Otherwise just re-download from the site.
Thanks! Very nice update, Koen.
Great addition. Thanks, Koen
When I load a shared page, it works fine, but if I refresh the page it doesn't work anymore. If I enter the URL bar and hit enter, it will load fine again. This happens in both Chrome and Safari. Any idea why just refreshing doesn't work?
(Also, this is awesome. Thanks for the new functionality!)
Chris any errors in the console?
Just checked. There are errors about tracker.js and analytics.js being blocked by client, but those appear even on first load.
Once again, great!
Chris hmm, I also didn't hear anyone else with this issue. Could it maybe be (a combination) of extensions? What platform/browser version are you running?
This is a great idea. One comment I have is that when I share a prototype it isn't immediately clear what the result of that is. I had chrome running in full screen mode and didn't realize that new tabs were being automatically created outside of Framer.
Brian we also throw a notification, but maybe it isn't visible oin fullscreen or you had dnd enabled? Anyway, fair point. We'll think about it.
You know, that's totally my oversight here. I mute notifications when I do screenshares at work, and I probably still had them disabled when I generated the share link. Thanks for the response.
not sure if anyone asked this yet, but how long does share.framer host these projects for? I'm assuming they get taken down after a set time along with the link?
Same question Ed - Also, when I share a project and make updates- I assumed the share would have the same URL and just update the project so my teammates can just save one link to the project as we are constantly refining. I will say the load time is quick and which allows for the the animations to be presented the way I intended.
Once a project is shared at a particular URL, how does one un-share (delete) it?
