I was hoping to find a particle effects module for Framer, but no such luck. There were a couple of Framer projects that had code I could leverage. Is there something I missed?

I found is this excellent coffee script project on codepen. But my coffee script is weak and this example has no comments to help interpret it. How hard would it be to convert this to Framer?

You're amazing. I had no idea so much of the code would translate to Framer!

thats the magic of framer, its all just web stuff :) anything you see in a browser can be reused! and honestly with something like this, youre better off using a canvas element instead of trying to draw layers over and over again

also theres one bit at the end which could probably be made more performant, but i forget how to tap into the native Framer animation loop. Koen told me once but I forgot

This is incredibly helpful. I've never used the canvas element before. Thank you!

Oh one more thing, the auto refresh in studio makes it get incrementally faster so be sure to do a lot of cmd+r

Eli here's an updated one that fixes the refresh bug: http://share.framerjs.com/rmurhky3lhm2/

I also had similar experiment in framer, but this one is based entirely on framer layers and the animation is different. It might be helpful though: http://share.framerjs.com/jgrzd4abuscn/
