Overrides are a way to extend Framer's capabilities by allowing you to use code to manipulate elements in ways not possible through the interface.
They are essentially snippets of code that let you change various properties of elements, from colors to data input, and even trigger animations in response to events.
Code overrides come in handy when you need to perform actions on elements in your project that can't be achieved through the regular user interface. They provide the flexibility to tweak and customize elements using code, and are particularly useful for adding dynamic functionality to your design.
Head over to the Framer website to find out how to create and customise your own code overrides.
Overrides are primarily for developers or designers with coding skills (as they require knowledge of React) who want to push the boundaries of what can be achieved within Framer. They're a powerful tool for those looking to customise and enhance elements using code, enabling advanced animations, dynamic interactions, and more. Overrides provide a means to take control of the design and interactivity of your projects beyond the usual interface options.
Over the past few months several Code Overrides libraries have been created by members of the community. Check out our Resources page with the latest overrides libraries to find the code snippets to enhance your own Framer projects.
