Stitch

Stitch is a lightweight framework for adding interaction to your Framer prototypes directly from your Sketch designs. View Demo

Use the built-in components, or build your own on top of Stitch and share them with the community!

This is an early beta - feedback welcome.

Demo

Checkout the Framer playground prototype - all of the interaction was added automatically with Stitch using only folder names from Sketch.

Usage

Adding Stitch to your Prototype

Add stitch.coffee to the modules directory of your Framer prototype.

Import Stitch:

Stitch = require('stitch').Stitch

Instantiate Stitch on your Sketch/Photoshop layers:

new Stitch layers

Triggering Stitch Components

Triggering Stitch components is done through the naming of your folders in Sketch.

layerName___componentName__arg1_arg1Value__arg2_arg2Value...

So, in order to make one of your folders scrollable, all you have to do is add ___scroll to your layer name:

mainLayer___scroll

If your mainLayer is taller or wider than the prototype device, Stitch will automatically add scrolling functionality within the bounds of the device.

If you want explicitly set the height of the scrollable container, you can do so with arguments:

mainLayer___scroll__height_200

If you want to pass a parameter with the boolean value true, either include true as the value, or leave the value out:

mainLayer___scroll__pagination

This would instantiate the scroll component with the parameters object { pagination: true }

Adding Components

At the most basic level, a component consists simply of a trigger word and a function.

For example, let's create a new component for making toggles. Create a new file in your prototype's modules directory called stitch.toggle.coffee.

At the bare minimum, this file needs to export your component:

exports.toggle = (layer, name, layers, params) ->
  # do your magic here

Let's first pretend you have a folder in your Sketch document named myToggle___toggle__start_on.

When your component is called by Stitch, it will pass a series of arguments:

layer

This is the layer that triggered the component, or in our case, myToggle___toggle__start_on.

name

This is the root name of the layer, without the component triggers, or in our case, myToggle.

layers

This contains all the layers that were passed to the Stitch instance. In most cases this would refer to your entire Sketch document.

params

This is an object of all the parameters set by the folder name in Sketch. In our case, this would return:

{
  start: on
}

Components

Scroll

Use the [Stitch Sample](/Stitch Sample.sketch) Sketch file as a guide. More documentation to come.

  • Vertical and horizontal scrolling
  • Paginate sub-folders
  • Pagination indicators
  • Reference the full-length content from another artboard
