Anima is a plugin that gives you the power to create high-fidelity prototypes in your own design tools (Sketch, Adobe XD, and Figma), and export developer-friendly code for your designs in a matter of a few clicks. The final result is an improved, constant workflow, a better handoff process, and clean code that developers love to use.
