Framer book

How do I access or download the book?

There is no file to download. All the Framer book content is on this website.

When you signed up for a subscription you gained access to the book. An account was created for you and you were automatically logged in (a default password was sent to your email).

When logged out, you’ll see that most pages in the Framer book are not public. (They’ll have a before their name in the side menu.)

Is there an educational discount?

Yes. As a student or teacher you can get a $30 discount on the annual subscription. Email me a picture of your student card to receive the discount code.

How do I cancel my subscription?

Go to your Subscriptions page…

… and click the ‘Cancel’ button. It will ask for a confirmation.

The status of your subscription will change to ‘Pending Cancellation’ and you’ll still have access until the end of the period you paid for.

I’m in China, can I pay with WePay or Alipay?

I’ve looked into it, but it doesn’t seem possible.

  • WeChat Pay: The payment processors I’m using, Stripe and PayPal, don’t accept it.
  • Alipay: Stripe accepts it, but only when the currency of the webshop is the same as its location’s. I’m selling in USD but am located in Europe, so Alipay payments don’t work.

Framer Classic book

What are these ‘overview prototypes’?

These iPad-sized prototypes show when individual events are triggered or have sliders with which you can tweak different properties and settings.

They make it easier to understand what, for example, ‘originX’ does because you can change it together with ‘rotation’ and see the result.

How many pages is the ePub?

It’s an ebook, so the amount of pages is variable, but it comes down to 1200 pages in the default text size in Apple Books on Mac.

I bought an earlier edition. How do I update?

The latest edition will be waiting in your Gumroad library.

Don’t have a Gumroad account? Create one with the email address you used to purchase the book. The book will be there.

You do have an account, but the book is not in your library? Send me your email address; I’ll resend the receipt so you can add it.

How do I get the book on my iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch?

To transfer the book: Connect your iDevice to your Mac, select the book in iTunes, and press ‘Sync’. The book’s read location will sync automatically between devices.

Can I read the eBook on a Windows or Linux computer?

It’s a standard ePub 3 file, so it’s perfectly readable. The layout might seem a bit different though, because I formatted it for Apple Books.

    Not sure where to make requests – but I’d love a section on working with SVGs in code. I have a folder with a bunch of Icons i’m exporting from canvas, I’d love to be able to use them in code.

  • Francisca says:

    I would vote for SVG too.. I have now my SVG library in place in a nice code component, but my next step, change the fill of the SVG by, for example, using states or a whileTap, is unfortunately not working yet… Would love to make that request too…Thank you!

    Hello, I am a student from China, and I have trouble in purchasing Framer X book by paypal recently, can you help me finish the purchase?

  • Peter Kubin says:

    how do i update my creditcard information? i do not want to switch to paypal, but this is the only option the form seems to offer. – any ideas?

    • Tes Mat says:

      So you want to continue using Stripe but with a different credit card.

      I just tested it. True, it doesn’t seem to be possible. You can only switch from one payment method (e.g. Stripe) to another (e.g. Paypal). That’s kind of stupid.

      I would just cancel the subscription… and then buy a new subscription once it ended.

      (Pressing ‘Reactivate’ on the cancelled subscription seems to start it with the same credit card details.)

    Hello, I purchased the book to understand the logic behind “Magic Motion” but I see there is no section about it, are you planning to update the book with that concept? I find particularly difficult/impossible to emulate with Framer Motion most of the “Framer Motion” tutorials

    • Tes Mat says:

      Yes, I plan to add more about Framer Motion 2 when it’s out of beta.

      Update September 22: Check the new section: Framer Motion.

      I’m about to finish a more general ‘Framer Motion’ section, which will be more about how to start a React project (Create React App, CodeSandbox, deployment,…) and about Motion APIs that are not present in Framer (useViewportScroll, animating SVGs…). More about the current Framer Motion APIs can already be found in Animation (there’s a Motion version of every example).

      About Framer Motion 2

      There are two new APIs: Automatic animation and AnimateSharedLayout.

      • Automatic animation: Animates one and the same element whenever you change its style or layout.
      • AnimateSharedLayout: Animates from one element to another when you hide one and show the other.

      It’s AnimateSharedLayout that drives the Magic Motion transitions in Framer.

      Maybe these examples (by Matt Perry) can get you started:

      I translated two of these demos also to a Framer project, to check if this stuff already works with frames. (Not yet, it seems, both APIs only work with Motion elements)

    Hello Tes Mat, I love this book … so much better than the framer docs! I really respect what you have created here!
    I didn’t see a place to contact you directly so I am posting this here. I was noticing this site isn’t using react … I am a react full stack dev and was wondering if you have considered converting it from wp to a full blown react front end. You could leverage all that awesome power to do things like: Bring in all of your code sandbox examples to be live in the site; Dynamically switch between Framer Code and Motion Code examples; . You have my email in my account info … feel free to contact … I would love to help in any way I can.
