    Sorry, but this is another "electron/wrap" app, so do not expect good performance. Just look on "hyped" apps like framer, figma etc. which are shitty, to be honest from the performance point of view. I love those ideas (I totally do), but really, professional tools like this should be NATIVE.

    Peace!

      That's a myth. No issues with Figma performance. In fact, I feel it's even faster than Sketch.

        Well, it is funny how easy "marketing" can blur the truth for some people. Good for you.

        For me, the story is totally different. Every time I working in framer, there are multiple glitches, loading times, a real performance issues. Every single time, on really powerful machines.

        But, anyway.

          What does that have to do with electron / react? As a developer myself, I am aware that application perf is different from application to application. It is not indicative to the platform. You run into perf issues on native applications too. When you say "multiple glitches, loading times," that has nothing to do with electron/react thats just bad coding on the platform. There are apps that have bad perf like Slack and in your case Framer. But then theres Discord and VSCode, explain those apps? It's really all about the quality of code and not the platform.

          Hey there! Marciano from Framer here. Sorry to hear about you running into performance issues. I would be more than happy to go investigate and see if we can resolve these issues. Could you tell me more about these glitches and how I would be able to reproduce them? If you could drop a line here or send it to marciano (at) Framer (dot) com then I will take it from there. Thanks and have a great weekend :)

        Aside from initial load of project, Figma performance is noticeably more responsive than Sketch, just rapidly change zoom levels and you can see it. I switch back and forth between both all the time. In the latest version of Sketch it is particularly noticeable. Nothing to do with marketing blurring any truth.

      Figma has performance issues? Not sure which version you tried, but it's one of the fastest design tools I've used in recent memory. I've started using it over Sketch for one production project and half a dozen personal projects and it's making it very hard to use Sketch because it's so much faster.

      You've mentioned this being "marketing blurring truth" in other comments, but I'm saying this as someone who has spent probably 300 hours in Figma at this point, so it has nothing to do with marketing.

      That's an incorrect statement. Figma is by far one of the fastest and smoothest tool currently available. The Figma guys are keeping a very toned-down profile in terms of marketing, the quality of their product speaks alone by itself. You should definitively check it out.

        So true. I went into the public beta super skeptical because non-native, blah blah. The performance and "feel" blew me away and smashed any preconceived ideas I had going in. They seem to take performance very seriously. Hard to make blanket statements about Electron apps. VS Code is also lightning fast.
