Con Mac only
Since Origami is not an app in and on itself, but a plugin for Quartz Composer, which is built by Apple. Therefore, Origami is only available for Mac and for a developer to download and use it, they need to register as an Apple Developer.
Con Mouse driven interactions
There's no way to directly test the tactile interface.
Con Steep learning curve
Origami is a toolkit for Quartz Composer, and unfortunately the learning curve for it is quite steep. Especially for beginners.
Con Highly opinionated
JSLint has a very strict, dogmatic ruleset that cannot be changed or warnings turned off. So much so that rarely any code will pass JSLint tests. It's reasonable to evaluate if all warning are worth changing.
Con No way to support ESnext
Con Difficult to know which rule is causing which error
Since you can't edit the rules and it's not programmed in a way to display the rule that's being broken, it's difficult to understand which rule has been broken.
