Create website interactions visually.

We’re proud to announce the launch of Webflow Interactions - a visual way for designers to create compelling interactive effects without having to write a single line of code.

Yesterday, web designers had to roll up their sleeves and learn how to code in order to create effects and animations on their web designs. Creative people were required to understand really technical concepts like jQuery event handlers, cross-browser CSS transforms, and JavaScript-triggered animations. It’s a bit reminiscent of the 80s, when designers had to learn how to write PostScript code just to get some text to rotate.

Today, with the launch of Webflow Interactions, designers can now create compelling interactive effects without having to write having to hand-write code. Webflow’s visual interaction editor puts designers in the drivers seat, and removes the requirement of having to learn to code (or even copy-paste code snippets from the web) in order to create website interactions.

Webflow Interactions (codenamed “Webflow IX”) put a lot of possibilities in the hands of designers and entrepreneurs. Here’s a small list of applications that are now possible without having to write any code:

Fade in a navigation bar once users scroll past a section (used on this blog post)

Highlight new elements on scroll to draw attention

Click on a button to show/hide another element

Animate elements as the mouse hovers over them

At Webflow, we believe that technical details shouldn’t get in the way of your creativity, and we’re working on creating a better web design tool that empowers you to create anything you can imagine and make it available to the world. Interactions are another step in that direction, and we can’t wait to see what you’re able to build with this new feature.
