Framer X

Learn how to make more advanced prototypes with Framer X.

The Framer X book teaches you how to add simple animations to your prototypes with Overrides, and how to create your own Code Components, like those that you can find in Framer’s Store.

Last update: May 14, 2019 — All content is updated for Framer X26 with Playground and the new APIs!
