Do I need technical skills?
No. You only need design skills. Press the “Preview” button and Anima will do the rest.
What are Hosted-Websites?
Anima allows you to publish a live website directly from Sketch. No coding required.
A paid Hosted-Website, means it can have your own address (not just animaapp.io one). So once you’ve bought a domain, i.e ‘mydomain.com’, you may connect it to a paid Hosted-Website you’ve created with Launchpad. It’s also faster by using a world-wide network of servers (CDN).
So once your design is ready to go live, go Hosted to use your own brand.
Hosting is included, versioning, backups, Search-Engine-Optimization, and more features are released each month.
Websites are made of files - your web pages HTML & CSS files, your images, and from data - the results of all your visitors forms.
In order to make it available on the web, we need to put it online on a server farm. We currently use Amazon’s AWS servers, meaning it is very fast and resilient.
What are Forms?
Forms allow you to interact with your website visitors. For example, if you’d like them to subscribe and give you their details. Or, if you’d like to make a ‘Contact us’ section.
When creating a form, you decide if you want to store the results on a spreadsheet, or have an email sent to you each time a visitor sends a form. Or you can have both.
What are Backups & Versioning?
We understand your design goes more than a few cycles, and Anima makes it easy to publish as many updates as you want.
Sometimes you find out there’s a bug in your design, or the client prefers an older variation of it after you’ve already published it.
No problem, you can view older versions and change the one that’s live in a matter of a click.
