30% Faster Loading

30% Faster Loading

Today we’re introducing performance improvements to project loading. When opening your projects today you might see a little modal asking you to optimize your project. This is safe, and we won’t touch your layers or content. It will make your projects up 30% faster to load. Framer used to do some heavy computation when loading projects, mainly computing hashes for SVG graphics, so we knew which ones were unique. With this new update we can now skip these, resulting in a big speed-up. Please let us know if you encounter any issues.

Today we’re introducing CMS Pagination, supporting both Infinite Scrolling and a manual Load More button. To add Pagination, simply select your Collection List, click on Pagination, select one of the two options, then pick how many items to load. Pagination also works with existing Limits and Start Offsets. Both the Spinner and Button are completely customizable, and you can pick any Variant for their Loading states. The Spinner itself is just a layer with a conic gradient and a Loop Effect, so you get full control. Adding Pagination helps make your blogs and changelogs much faster to load, especially when they contain dozens of items.

  • Infinite Scrolling with custom Spinner component

  • Load More Button with custom Button component

  • Enjoy freeform positioning of both components

  • Design your own Loading and Hidden states

  • Make your CMS Pages much faster to load
