Bots UI Kit vs Framer: What are the differences?

Developers describe Bots UI Kit as "Fully customizable Sketch UI Kit for Messenger Platform". Simple and fully customizable Sketch UI kit to helps you design and showcase your Facebook Bots. All elements are turned into new branded Sketch symbols, so prototyping has never been easier. On the other hand, Framer is detailed as "Turn static mockups into prototypes with animation & interaction". Framer is a JavaScript framework that makes creating realistic prototypes a breeze – complete with filters, spring physics and full 3D effects. Framer Generator is a desktop app that imports the resources and folder hierarchy from Photoshop files (Sketch coming soon). Import your design and immediately start to add interaction and animation.

Bots UI Kit and Framer can be primarily classified as "Mobile Prototyping & Interaction Design" tools.

Some of the features offered by Bots UI Kit are:

  • Structured & fully customizable .sketch file
  • All important elements turned into symbols
  • Free

On the other hand, Framer provides the following key features:

  • Generate assets out of Photoshop to set up new projects.
  • Animate any layer in 3D space with spring physics and bezier curves.
  • Hardware accelerated for high frame rates, based on CSS transforms.

Framer is an open source tool with 5.45K GitHub stars and 506 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Framer's open source repository on GitHub.

Hey!

I want to prototype an app for a school project. I need to test the app from a distance, so it's multiple user tests from different locations when I'm only there online. What do you think is the best combination of tools available? I want to record the user sessions. It should be responsive on different viewports for phones, and it's should be interactive (e.g., testers can actually type in a text box).

Thanks in advance for your advice, looking forward to it. Please also tell me the "why" behind the choice. - Joey

Hey Joey, I would advise you to use framer. It lets you create realistic prototypes and this allows you to capture usage especially errors from form inputs in a realistic manner as compared to static screens. With framer, you can easily connect to user testing apps such as lookback.io by the click of a button, run your tests and get the best feedback possible.

I hope this helps.
