    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:

  • 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.
