Questions?

Why Lottie?

Lottie enables us to easily include beautiful and performant vector animations in applications. Since Lottie animations are exported as JSON files, file sizes remain >small and animations can easily be resized and looped with without losing quality. So, no more heavy videos or gifs!

Where do I find lottie animations?

There are many FREE files you can use. Visit LottieFiles website, there are a huge community for lottie!

How do I create my own animations?
