In this talk, you’ll learn how to use the Lottie animation framework to create beautiful animations for iOS, Android, MacOS, TvOS and even Xamarin.Forms apps! Animations are always a delight to have in our apps, but can be very difficult to create. Lottie makes it easy to integrate fancy animations!
Animations are always a delight to have in our apps, but they can also be very difficult to create. Taking an animation that a designer has created and turning it into platform-specific code is both tedious and prone to error. Lottie is a mobile animations library created by Airbnb for iOS and Android that parses Adobe After Effects animations (exported as JSON) and renders them using native animation APIs. With Lottie, for the first time designers can create and ship beautiful animations without an engineer painstakingly recreating it by hand. Since it is backed by JSON, the animations are extremely small in size, but can be large in complexity! Animations can be played, resized, looped, sped up, slowed down, and even interactively scrubbed.
