How to create one in Framer
With Framer you can design and prototype with or without using code. By using code you can unlock many more unique interactions. To create the like animation example from above you will need to use code overrides powered by Framer Motion. The first override will be placed on the main heart button and will trigger when the button is tapped and it will cause the main button to increase in size just a few pixels to indicate that it was tapped. The second override is what will create the actual like animation. This override will be placed on all of the other heart graphics to simulate the floating effect that occurs when the heart button is clicked. This override will control the position and time out of all the heart graphics as they float up from the button.
