Framer vs Webflow: What are the differences?

What is Framer? 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.

What is Webflow? Build responsive websites visually. Webflow is a responsive design tool that lets you design, build, and publish websites in an intuitive interface. Clean code included!.

Framer belongs to "Mobile Prototyping & Interaction Design Tools" category of the tech stack, while Webflow can be primarily classified under "Static Web Hosting".

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, Webflow provides the following key features:

  • Build responsive websites
  • PIxel perfect control
  • Publish and host in minutes
