    IMO, Framer made it wayyyy easier to prototype using code than starting from scratch with HTML/CSS/JS. Sure, it's easy to get a basic webpage up, but what happens when you want live reloading? Need to find and add tooling. What happens when you want to be able to drag things around the screen? Either find a library or understand the web's low-level interaction APIs.

    Framer abstracted all of that into an IDE and API that was very easy to pick up and use compared to a "from scratch" approach.
