    Looks like we have a new design/code tool showdown between Framer, Hadron, Interplay, and Modulz. Is there anything the Hadron team is focusing on that you feel will differentiate you from those other tools?

      Hadron, unlike those tools, is more like a visual code editor because you can go back and forth between code and design.

      The reason for this is that they all store the design in an internal data structure, that they later translate into images or code when you request it. This means that there is a new exported object created every time.

      In contrast, Hadron edits code on the fly while you are working. Each of your actions on the UI is translated into an operation to update the code. We don't have an internal data structure. This is huge because it allows files to be shared for real.

      We'll expand this more on another post in the future.

        Thanks for the explanation! That is an appealing difference for someone like me who is familiar with HTML/CSS/JS but hasn't gone deep into anything but the very front of the front-end.
