stackFrame Components which provide functionlity and allow you to fully customize the design to match your products design, all without writing a single line of code.

There are a ton of people out there looking to build Web Apps, but you might be asking what is a Web App?

A Web App is a website that is essentially a website with more complex features like Authentication, User Profiles, etc. It’s not exactly a mobile app but it has the functionality of a mobile app but instead it lives on the Web. Web Apps are a great alternative to creating a mobile app because it’s cheaper and easier to onboard new users since they don’t have to download an app. The negatives are that you can’t send notifications to a web app and in my opinion nothing beats a mobile app when it comes to performance.

With stackFrame you can add things like:
⁃ Authentication
⁃ User Profiles
⁃ Newsfeeds (Display User Posts)
⁃ User Posts (Post on a Newsfeed)

All you have to do is drag and drop the feature you want to add to your Framer Website, paste the stackFrame Project ID into the stackFrame component and BOOM, stackFrame handles the functionality for you. You can even customize the look of the components to match your…
