Overview 👇Anima is on a mission to help designers and developers collaborate smoothly and deliver products faster, with nothing getting lost in translation.
Anima helps designers to create high-fidelity prototypes right from Sketch, Adobe XD, and Figma. When it comes to developers, Anima helps by converting design to React code, and saves precious time by automating front-end developers’ grunt work.
The end result? A clean component-based code that you simply cannot believe you didn’t write yourself.
Read on to find out just how easy it is to get React from a Sketch design.
How to export code ❓
You can Export code in two different ways, either by syncing your design using the Anima Sketch plugin, or simply by importing your Sketch file directly in our web app. One option is geared toward designers and the other toward developers.
Option 1️⃣ — sync your designs from Sketch
Start by syncing your design to Anima:
- Get Anima plugin for Sketch
- Click Preview in Browser → Sync
Option 2️⃣ — Import Sketch file directly to Anima
