At Zeliot, we are constantly striving to improve our design and development processes. Recently, we made a significant shift by migrating our website from React JS to Framer Sites. This decision wasn't taken lightly, but after careful consideration, we believe it was the right move for our business. In this blog post, we'll delve into the key factors that influenced our decision to switch from React JS to Framer Sites, along with the benefits we've experienced.

Why We Moved from React JS

While React JS is a powerful and popular JavaScript library for building user interfaces, we encountered some challenges with it for our specific needs. Here's a closer look at the reasons behind our move:

  • Complexity for Simple Websites: For our website, which primarily focuses on showcasing our services and portfolio, the complexity of React JS felt unnecessary. Framer Sites offered a simpler and more streamlined approach for this purpose.

  • Development Time: Developing and maintaining a React JS website requires a significant investment in time and resources. Framer Sites' visual editing capabilities allowed us to streamline development, freeing up time for other aspects of our business.

  • Limited Design Flexibility: While React JS offers design flexibility, Framer Sites' visual editing interface felt more intuitive and allowed for more rapid design iteration. This was crucial for our creative process.

Benefits of Framer Sites

Since migrating to Framer Sites, we've witnessed several improvements in our design workflow and website:

  • Faster Development: The visual editing capabilities of Framer Sites significantly reduced development time compared to React JS.

  • Enhanced Design Collaboration: Framer Sites fosters smoother collaboration between designers and developers by providing a shared design environment.

  • Improved Prototyping: Framer Sites' built-in prototyping features streamline the creation of interactive prototypes, enhancing the user experience.

  • Lightweight and Performant: Websites built with Framer Sites tend to be lightweight and performant, resulting in faster loading times and a better user experience.


Our migration from React JS to Framer Sites has been a success. The simplicity, speed, and design flexibility of Framer Sites have streamlined our workflow and allowed us to create a more engaging website for our visitors. While React JS remains a powerful tool, for our specific needs, Framer Sites proved to be a superior choice.
