About this book

This book is for learning how to use Framer Classic (obviously), but I also tried to make it a reference. I actually started looking up things in it myself while still writing it.

ePub 3 for Apple Books

The first four editions of this book were as an e-book formatted for Apple Books. In fact, you can still get the book in this ePub 3 format.

‘Download Project’ buttons

You’ll notice these buttons under most code examples, with which you can download a Framer example project:

There’s also this button, which you’ll find under some of the iPad-sized overview prototypes.

It signifies that the prototype is responsive and can be viewed on an iPhone or iPod Touch.

(Earlier there were ‘Open in Framer’ buttons, but the service that they used stopped working in April 2019. This is also why the projects are zipped.)

Design notes

The book is mainly about Framer’s Code, but here and there you’ll find ‘Design notes’, like the one below. These are short explanations of how something works in Design or tips for working optimally.

In Design, you can see which font weights a specific typeface actually has (and select them from the list).
