Framer Hook Save

A module for Framer that lets you easily hook one property onto another via spring or gravity.

Hook module for Framer

Spring example

The Hook module expands Framer's Layer prototype, and lets you make any numeric Layer property follow another property - either its own or another object's - via a spring or gravity attraction.

Enough chat. Examples:

Example 1: Easing + spring

Example 2: Modulation from one property type to another

Example 3: Gravity, too

The original use case was to layer a spring animation on top of an eased animation to give more control over the timing and feel of a transition, as seen in Example 1. You do not need two layers to achieve this though, as shown in the first code snippet below.

I'm not a developer nor a mathematician, so much of this is improvised, particularly the physics. Please do let me know, or create a pull request, if you have any suggestions for improvements.

Example: Layered animation (eased + spring)

myLayer = new Layer

# Make our own custom property for the x property to follow
myLayer.easedX = 0

# Hook x to easedX via a spring
	property: "x"
	targetProperty: "easedX"
	type: "spring(150, 15)"

# Animate easedX
		easedX: 200
	time: 0.15
	curve: "cubic-bezier(0.2, 0, 0.4, 1)"

NOTE: To attach both the x and y position, use "pos", "midPos" or "maxPos" as the property/targetProperty.

Example: Hooking property to another layer

target = new Layer
hooked = new Layer

	property: "scale"
	to: target
	type: "spring(150, 15)"

The "hooked" layer's scale will now continuously follow the target layer's scale with a spring animation.

Example: Adding a modulator function

The modulator function allows you to do anything you want with the target property's value before it is applied. As a very basic example, let's say you want to convert one layer's y position into a corresponding scale value for another layer:

target = new Layer
hooked = new Layer

	property: "scale"
	to: target
	targetProperty: "y"
	type: "spring(200,20)"
	modulator: (input) -> Utils.modulate(input, [0, 400], [0.5, 1])
