When you’ve spent hours designing something beautiful for the web, the last thing you want to hear is “sorry, we can’t build this”. What you need is a tool that bridges design and development.

Framer can be that bridge. It’s a browser-based prototyping tool that enables designers to use code-backed components and dynamic transitions to visually express ideas. When the time comes, developers can jump in and easily inspect elements for CSS or JSX code. Custom animations built with Magic Motion, powered by the Framer Motion library, also come complete with clean code which can be taken straight into production.
