If it's wireless, does it require wifi to work? Or does it work without network just like Duet?
What I'm impressed about PageDraw is actually their tight integration with dev environment, and their compiler approach to encapsulate the UI in a somewhat blackbox.
Are you guys going similar direction or do you have a different stance?
Check out https://pagedraw.io/, which looks like a more comprehensive approach -- only hope their visual editor is as good as actual design tools
That's a great question Clarissa!
I need to think about it and probably write a blog post. I also hope someone from the Framer team will chime in and shed some light.
Some rough thoughts. I think the ultimate goal is "no handoff" at all. A designer would directly make changes to components that are shared between design and engineering. Any specs can be (and should be) expressed in code. And code should be the single source of truth. With Framer X, at least this is getting close in web projects based on React.
Also, they've mentioned that everything you build in Framer X could be exported to React code. This might be useful as a developer handoff feature. Instead of handing off specs, you hand off components. Devs can take the components, either directly use them, or use the metrics inside to rebuild them. We'll see how this will evolve.
I understand there are other projects that are not based on React, or mobile native apps etc. In those cases, I think it'd be great if Framer X allows integration with tools such as Zeplin. Again, we'll see how this will evolve!
Awesome Alex, I've added your tweet. Thanks for the contribution!
cheers! Let me know what else you'd like to build!
Hey, there is a tip for that on the page. :)

SSR is not even content IMHO. It's a just a way to present content (to search engines mostly).
With that said, I think it's useful to understand what SSR is, what it does and how it is related to SEO at a high-level. But perhaps not the technical details of how to get it to work. Unless your goal is to build the whole solution yourself.
