This is so much more impressive and so much harder to do right than all the Sketch clone stuff we have been seeing lately.
I don't think Webflow gets enough credit for building a design tool that takes all the advantages of WYSIWYG while discarding the vast majority of limitations and disadvantages, and ending up with code that is production ready (at least for most marketing or portfolio type sites).
This is why GUIs are important, because it makes totally graspable concepts like scroll-based animation or multi-step animation accessible to designers who don't want to figure out all the annoying corner-cases and fixes for CSS. I still use the terminal, I still handcode some animations, but I wish people would give more recognition to efforts like this.
Totally! Just started using Webflow again few weeks ago (did one quick project last summer) and gotta say I've learnt more about HTML/CSS than in the previous 3 years. Biggest takeaway: It's not about memorizing everything by heart so you could write code, but rather changing fundamentally the way you design and build interfaces.
Yes, it is a great tool for learning! I tell my Adobe-only design friends who have shown some interest in front-end code to check out Webflow.
Absolutely. Webflow is amazing. Surprised people say that the code output isn't the best. Sure, they don't support things like pseudo elements (yet), but when they do it will be a big deal.
I've taken the code from WF and trimmed it down for production sites before. Still faster than hand coding a complex site. Couple that with a SSG like Jekyll and it's a beautiful thing.
Hey, DN folks!
I’m excited to share what the team here at Webflow has been working on recently. Today marks the initial release of Interactions 2.0 — a completely visual way to build amazing animations and interactions for the web — which we’ve been researching, building, and testing over the past year.
This site is awesome, too!
Really nice work, people! I'm excited about all of this.
Wow, haven't seen something this good in a long time.
High five Webflow
That's impressive! Great way to demo the options too.
Wow so stoked. Can’t wait to jump in and explore. Been using webflow for the last year and it has totally changed the way I efficiently build websites. You guys do awesome work.
Soooo goood RN!
Can I assume that this integrates with the Designer portion of Webflow so that any underlying code behind the animation can be utilized by devs?
Sure, you can always export all the code if that's your thing.
That's amazing! Waited for this so long :)
Q: Is there any way to use a different interaction (or block current one) for mobile/tablet/desktop view?
Yes, now you can apply different interactions (or disable an existing one) per each media query.
Gracias! This is HUGE :)
Just...wow. So impressed by Webflow.
God bless you, sir.
It is indeed, an amazing world.
This product would be much more useful if I didn't have to use it as a SAAS. If it were a product that you didn't have to pay for each website you build and if it were software you can download instead of using a web browser even if it was similar to Figma.
Amazing tool nonetheless!
Fantastic, huge well done to everyone involved.
Got some stuffs to work today. opening DM Wowed by Interaction 2.0 Goes with experimentation. Another day gone.
Can't wait to give it a try. Very impressive!!!
Amazing Webflow!! Looks so great!
Wow. Came here to say I've been trying to implement some of these interactions and this initial release came in time. Thanks, Webflow!
Bravo! Love using Webflow for some of my smaller projects when I don't want to spend time coding.
