After doing basic prototyping with Invision, i want to use framer for high level prototyping. I have experience in HTML & CSS but never learnt JS. This would be my first time.
Should i learn JS or Coffeescript? Any resources that would help me learn and get into prototyping within a month?
Try this book http://coffeescript-for-framerjs.com, the Learn and Docs sections on framerjs.com, you can get to work with framer within 2 weeks, but you absolutely need to understand Js to get the most out of Framer.
yeah hence my dilemma of should i go all inwith learning JS or just go with coffeescript and start prototypingThank you for the ebook link
Yeah, i think maybe you should start prototyping with framer, some basic coffeescript, actually, it's not hard cause framer is made for designers without coding experiences, but complicated prototypes or animations require good understanding of Js, good mindset for programming.
Framer is great and so is origami
i tried origami and it went over my head after first 2-3 videos from origami tutorials. If you have any resources that go in depth of teaching origami it would be of great help.
Just jump straight into it by following all the tutorials on the framer site and looking at the example code. You don't need to know JS or coffee to get started, although eventually you'll hit a wall then you can start learning JS and coffee.
If your focus is visual and UX design, coffee script would do just fine. Personally I believe FramerJS is a more flexible tool for prototype building than the rest of it's peers. Here is how to get started http://framerjs.com/learn/basics/
Sorry, i'm new to code but why so much hate for coffeescript ?
Thanks a lot! :)
You'll definitely want to learn some basic JS concepts such as loops, conditionals, arrays etc. Btw Coffee just sits on top of JS, it's similar to Less or Sass for CSS (from my understanding)
