Import Sketch Designs. Animate in Flow. Export Dev-ready Code.

Brief Summary

Flow is a new class of motion design for mobile. Built for Designers and Developers, Flow lets you easily animate designs and generate production-ready code that a developer can use right away.

Long Summary

Flow is a motion-design tool for animating Sketch files and eliminating the most painful parts of hand-off. It bridges the gap between design and development by generating native code that can be directly incorporated into larger more complex projects by a developer.

Our focus on making Flow a production tool that exports code allows designers to have far more impact on the final product of development cycles. The simplified interface we have created is easy to learn and adopt.

As a designer, you can work in Sketch, animate in Flow and export production-ready code.

As a developer, you can customize the kind of code you need to make it easy to integrate into your already existing projects.

Alpha Release on Medium

We wrote an article on Medium that outlined the main features of the Flow Alpha. You can access that article:

Flow Alpha Release

Key Features

Here is a short list of the key features available in Flow.

Sketch Integration

Flow taps straight into a designer’s Sketch file. After creating a new project the user simply links to their Sketch file and chooses two artboards to animate between.

Artboards are States

When designing for an animation, think of your artboards as states. Create two similar artboards like Menu Open and Menu Closed, then load them into Flow.

Transitions

Flow automatically animates between two linked states. The user can open the transition and start editing the timelines, durations, and easing right away.

Powerful Animation

Our timeline gives you a powerful means for creating brilliant animations.

Exporting

We have created a sophisticated code export system that allows you to generate views, controllers and even full Xcode projects. Currently, Flow exports Swift code.

Tutorials

We have put together a set of simple tutorials that go through topics from preparing designs in Sketch, to swapping standard UIKit elements with those created in Flow.
