Anima for Adobe XD
Getting Started

Anima in Adobe XD

What Is Anima App?

Anima App enables designers to create real experiences, rather than clickable prototypes, and offers collaboration tools to build consensus across teams and organizations. Anima also converts Sketch and Adobe XD designs to HTML/CSS websites that can hosted on Anima servers or can be downloaded as a HTML/CSS code package and self-hosted. No coding needed!

Anima App is a great tool for:

  • High-Fidelity Prototypes (Learn how you can create one)
  • Websites based solely on HTML and CSS

Anima App does not currently support:

  • Dynamic websites with Javascript

Anima App is great for:

  • Freelance designers
  • Design teams that collaborate with developers
  • Developers

Main Features

Anima for Adobe XD has 2 main sections:


  • Links - Anima supports Adobe XD's Prototyping Tap Transition, Overlays and Previous Artboard. With Anima you can set up links to external websites, or anchor links to another section of the same page
  • Breakpoints - A way to make your design look great in Mobile, Tablets, and Desktops
  • Set as Home - Set an artboard as the homepage of your prototype or website

Smart Layers

  • Forms - You can set up forms and allow users submit information such as their contact information
  • Text Input - Add real Text Input fields that include input validation for Email, Password, and Numbers
  • Embed Code - Embed HTML snippets that enhance your prototype functionality
  • Fixed Position - Fixes components in one place while the rest of the content moves behind them on scrolling

How Does It Work?

Designers can upload a prototype and collaborate with a developer in a matter of seconds.

Here are the steps for creating a high-fidelity prototype from an Adobe XD document:

  1. Design your website in Adobe XD where each screen is represented by an artboard
  2. Add Links, Forms & Text Inputs, Videos, Hover Effects, and other Smart Layers
  3. Create a preview in the browser to verify that the prototype looks and feels as desired
  4. Sync to Project and collaborate
