At Anima, we’re changing the way teams build software by breaking down barriers between design and development. This brings entire product teams into the software development process like never before.
Using Anima, Designers can export developer-friendly React code for engineers. Developers can skip the grunt work of coding UI from scratch. Teams can deliver better apps and websites with a fraction of the time and resources.
In this tutorial, I will cover the technical side of how to build a React app using Anima, starting from a design in Figma, Adobe XD, or Sketch.
Clean design brings cleaner code
Behind the scenes, we do A LOT of heavy lifting to give you super clean code.
Anima will remove redundant layers, automatically name elements, restructure the DOM in a way that mimics a human engineer as closely as possible, find patterns to extract components and styles, and much more.
Our code quality improves all the time, but we’re not perfect yet.
So if your design reuses Figma components and layers that have meaningful names and hierarchy, we will produce cleaner code.
A seasoned software engineer on a mission to improve developers’ lives and evangelize the power of code. When creating new software is made easier by software, he’s happy². In his leisure time you’ll find him trotting the globe, book in hand, in search of new perspectives.
