An iOS library to natively render After Effects vector animations

Lottie for iOS, macOS (and Android and React Native)


View documentation, FAQ, help, examples, and more at

Lottie is a mobile library for Android and iOS that natively renders vector based animations and art in realtime with minimal code.

Lottie loads and renders animations and vectors exported in the bodymovin JSON format. Bodymovin JSON can be created and exported from After Effects with bodymovin, Sketch with Lottie Sketch Export, and from Haiku.

For the first time, designers can create and ship beautiful animations without an engineer painstakingly recreating it by hand.Since the animation is backed by JSON they are extremely small in size but can be large in complexity!Animations can be played, resized, looped, sped up, slowed down, reversed, and even interactively scrubbed.Lottie can play or loop just a portion of the animation as well, the possibilities are endless!Animations can even be changed at runtime in various ways! Change the color, position or any keyframable value!Lottie also supports native UIViewController Transitions out of the box!

Here is just a small sampling of the power of Lottie
