The ability to express and consume design tokens within Framer. We can already do this with shared colours, but this concept extends beyond this, including but not limited to:
  • Text styles/tokens
  • Spacing/layout tokens
  • Default colours/sizing for newly created components
  • Borders
We can then leverage the availability of these tokens to better integrate design systems with Framer. By using the design system as the single source of truth, ideally we'd like to be able to automatically import these tokens into projects and be able to handoff any proposed changes to these tokens within Framer.
What other tokens are we missing here? It would be a great to get an insight into what you currently express via tokens within your design system. Feel free to leave a comment!
