    Any future plans to be more flexible on the prototyping side and not limit designers to use CoffeeScript?

    I love Framer Studio, but I've stopped using it because I'm now prototyping in React (Web/Native). I'd love to do that directly in this app, and even be able to use Airbnb's React-Sketch.

    Thank you, Framer Team!

      For sure. We have been investigating a switch to ES6. JavaScript is just omnipresent and while it might have some downsides (like looking more intimidating), we actually believe it will be easier to learn and a worthier time investment in the end.

        Definitely a +1 for ES6 support. ES6 has so many of the features that made Coffeescript a great alternative to the Javascript of old. The syntax for Coffeescript has a nicer aesthetic IMO, but I would prefer to write prototype code using the same syntax I write my production application code in, as one less context switch is always a huge win. There is also so many great (and free) resources on the web for learning ES6.

          +1 for ES6 support. Especially if Framer 5 is going to adopt Preact, I prefer sharing a consistent abstraction with my developers (we do almost all of our apps on React now).
