I've been trying a workflow that others have mentioned, when I break components out into modules, as I design them. The modules (12 of them) are reused across 4 separate prototype files. It's been great, but I'm hoping to consolidate them into one directory, from which all prototypes require. I started to move them into my NPM directory, but I don't think I understand the syntax/concept. I think others have a similar workflow, any suggestions?

I have no idea how to make this work, but I'd love to see a tutorial to learn how.

You can just use dot syntax. For example, if you have a field, text, and buttons, you'd set the name in the module as exports.field, exports.text, and exports.button. Then the app.coffee file, you can important that module, for example, as mod. Then you can access the different components as mod.field, mod.text, and mod.button.

Ditto, working on bringing in a Node.js sample project/SDK and having real problems getting it to work as a module I can actually use in Framer. Works fine as a Node.js app, but no matter what I try can't get it working as a module.

Koen that's the point I was trying to make yesterday :)
