The skip-motion framework is available at, which can be checked out and tested with skip test once Skip is installed.


This is a Skip Swift/Kotlin library project that provides the ability to play Lottie animations in dual-platform Skip apps for iOS and Android.

On the Kotlin side, SkipMotion uses the lottie-ios package, and on Android it uses the lottie-android.

Lottie is a mobile library for Android and iOS that parses Adobe After Effects animations exported as json with Bodymovin and renders them natively, enabling designers and developers to create and ship beautiful and seamless animations in their apps.


import SwiftUI
import Foundation
import SkipMotion

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        VStack(alignment: .center) {
            Text("Skip Motion Animation")
            MotionView(lottie: lottieData)

let lottieData = """
{"mn":"ADBE Vector Shape - Group"}
""".data(using: String.Encoding.utf8)!


SkipMotion is in a very early stage, and lack any playback controls or other customization of the animations.

You are encouraged to contribute to the project or file an issue with needs and requests.


Adding SkipMotion as a dependency will add around 1MB to the size of the release .ipa and .apk artifacts for your project.


See the LottieDemo project for an example of using SkipMotion in a Skip App project.


This project is a Swift Package Manager module that uses the Skip plugin to transpile Swift into Kotlin.

Building the module requires that Skip be installed using Homebrew with brew install skiptools/skip/skip. This will also install the necessary build prerequisites: Kotlin, Gradle, and the Android build tools.


The module can be tested using the standard swift test command or by running the test target for the macOS destination in Xcode, which will run the Swift tests as well as the transpiled Kotlin JUnit tests in the Robolectric Android simulation environment.

Parity testing can be performed with skip test, which will output a table of the test results for both platforms.
