Framer vs SlackTextViewController: What are the differences?

Developers describe Framer as "Turn static mockups into prototypes with animation & interaction". Framer is a JavaScript framework that makes creating realistic prototypes a breeze – complete with filters, spring physics and full 3D effects. Framer Generator is a desktop app that imports the resources and folder hierarchy from Photoshop files (Sketch coming soon). Import your design and immediately start to add interaction and animation. On the other hand, SlackTextViewController is detailed as "iOS UIViewController subclass with a custom growing text input". A drop-in UIViewController subclass with a growing text input view and other useful messaging features. Meant to be a replacement for UITableViewController & UICollectionViewController. This library is used in Slack's iOS app.

Framer and SlackTextViewController are primarily classified as "Mobile Prototyping & Interaction Design" and "Mobile UI Components" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Framer are:

  • Generate assets out of Photoshop to set up new projects.
  • Animate any layer in 3D space with spring physics and bezier curves.
  • Hardware accelerated for high frame rates, based on CSS transforms.

On the other hand, SlackTextViewController provides the following key features:

  • iOS 7 and iOS 8
  • iPhone 6 compatible
  • iPad compatible

Framer and SlackTextViewController are both open source tools. It seems that SlackTextViewController with 8.57K GitHub stars and 1.11K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Framer with 5.45K GitHub stars and 506 GitHub forks.
