Lottie – use After Effects animations in web and native apps

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on news.ycombinator.com

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • CodiumAI - TestGPT | Generating meaningful tests for busy devs
  • ONLYOFFICE ONLYOFFICE Docs — document collaboration in your environment
  • Sonar - Write Clean C++ Code. Always.
  • Lottie for Android, iOS, and React Native

    Render After Effects animations natively on Android and iOS, Web, and React Native

    They should add the Flutter package for it on the "third party platform" page! :) (https://airbnb.io/lottie/#/other-platforms)


  • animator

    Design tool for creating Lottie animations and interactive web components

    Posted this because I wanted to start a discussion on the ecosystem and workflows around Lottie and animations on the web. Here are some alternative programs I found that can export Lottie files:


  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • synfig

    This is the Official source code repository of the Synfig project

  • Skia

    Skia is a complete 2D graphic library for drawing Text, Geometries, and Images.

    Skottie: Lottie player using the Skia graphics library[0][1]

    Skia powers Google Chrome[2], Flutter, & Fuchia[3].

  • jlottie

    A small-footprint lottie player in Javascript

    For the vast majority of use cases, you could try using the jlottie player (15kb gzipped) instead of lottie-web. jlottie was built to support a limited set of Lottie features, based on the data we have, to support 80+% of the Lottie animations we typically see.


  • CodiumAI

    TestGPT | Generating meaningful tests for busy devs. Get non-trivial tests (and trivial, too!) suggested right inside your IDE, so you can code smart, create more value, and stay confident when you push.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
