    Despite the obvious appeal, I honestly still don't know if the learning curve is worth it.

      On the same boat. I tried really hard to use it but still found using things like Principle much much faster to achieve the desired interaction. I will see if this new update will change that..

    At what point do you just learn to code using normal web languages? I get wanting a tool like Principle that's very drag and drop'y, but you might as well just learn to write javascript at this point...

    I fuckin love it, great update. The best about framer is that you can prototype whatever you want, however you want, and you are not limited to the built-in transitions and animations that Principle and others provide. Yes, the learning curve is a bit steep if you never coded before, but it doesn't hurt if designers can code a tiny bit. Eventually, your design will be coded anyhow...

      Well I can code, but still using Framer felt a bit overkill for simple prototyping. Maybe I haven't really come across really needing it yet. Question is, would it be ok for designers who don't code to directly jump in to coffeescript to use it without digging JS/Jquery first?

      Why not just go straight into javascript and code it for real? Framer always feels like it's right in the middle yet you can't even reuse the code you write for actual use.
