Hey everyone!
Is there a way to trigger a build update from outside Framer Studio? I'm working on some modules and I want to preview it directly from my own simple Python server.

Is there a hidden CLI we can use in the framer folder to launch a build task?

gulp also if you arent using framer studio, why not just use framer js?

Florian, I'm afraid that there's no hooks in Framer Studio to do this right now (but Eelco will dive in to see if there's a quick fix for a bit). In the meanwhile, a (very) long shot could be to have your external editor setup with live-reload (Atom has a plugin for this, for example: and to hack your Framer project's index.html file to load the livereload.js script. Could be lots of hurdles there though...

Hi Florian, I just released a new beta that has this feature: if a .coffee or .js file in the modules directory changes, it will automatically reload. Let me know if that works for you!
