How do you link to a frame from a Code Component?

Framer / General · September 29, 2018 at 1:59am
It's easy to link from a Frame to Frame from the Framer X canvas, but suppose I have a code component that is an autocomplete input. And if a user taps one of the autocomplete dropdown items, I would like to them to be routed to another frame. How would I accomplish that?

You can't control screen transitions from code yet. Once the full framer API is exposed, you should be able to. Not sure when that will happen though.

Oh. The more I try and use Framer X, the more I realize it's not ready for the big time. Should still be in beta.

^^ yuppp. guess they felt the pressure to release something for in time for the Loupe conference. It's really half-baked right now. You pretty much have to write real code yo achieve anything, which defeats the purpose of prototyping

Well there seems to be a navigation component.. maybe worth look. But I didn‘t found out how to use it. Just to make some wrong hopes in here 😄

but if you have to use an api in order to get the interactions framer X claims to have...why not just write code?

I must admit, I'm deeply disappointed in how the Framer X website sells features that seem to either not exist at all or are gated behind prohibitively expensive plans. I've heard their excuse of "it's planned," but planning a feature doesn't mean that you can sell it to people.

@jasondb the api we're referring to is Framer's internal Library. If you've used framer classic, then you you've used it before. The Framer Library will make it a lot easier to create PageComponents, animations, ScrollComponents, Gestures, and other events. It will actually allow you to write LESS code and easier syntax (hopefully). It just wasn't ready for launch.

I agree that the launch was very underwhelming, and they overpromised what would be available. Once the full Framer Library is available, I imagine it will be much easier to create interactions. It's really the only reason I'm holding out on Framer X. Writing/Learning strict 1-1 code right now for PROTOTYPES is just not feasible or productive for me

I wonder if anyone from Framer could give us an idea of an ETA for the ability to link to a frame from code please? I'm liking Framer X so far but finding it really hard to work around this particular omission.

@mauns any idea on how to use it? we can try together (I'm a dev) and hack FramerX for our purpose then post here the solution, how about it?
