To install execute:

tns plugin add @nativescript-community/ui-lottie


NativeScript (Core)


xmlns:Lottie="@nativescript-community/ui-lottie" navigatingTo="navigatingTo" class="page">

<Lottie:LottieView src="PinJump.json" height="130" loop="true" autoPlay="true" loaded="yourLoadedEvent" />


import { LottieView } from "@nativescript-community/ui-lottie";

public yourLoadedEvent(args) {
this._myLottie = args.object as LottieView; /// this is the instance of the LottieAnimationView

NativeScript Angular


First you need to include the NativeScriptLottieModule in your app.module.ts

import { NativeScriptLottieModule} from '@nativescript-community/ui-lottie/angular';

imports: [


<LottieView width="100" height="150" [src]="src" [loop]="loop" [autoPlay]="autoPlay" (loaded)="lottieViewLoaded($event)"> </LottieView>


import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { LottieView } from '@nativescript-community/ui-lottie';

templateUrl: 'home.component.html',
moduleId: module.id
export class HomeComponent {
public loop: boolean = true;
public src: string;
public autoPlay: boolean = true;
public animations: Array<string>;

private _lottieView: LottieView;

constructor() {
this.animations = [
this.src = this.animations[0];

lottieViewLoaded(event) {
this._lottieView = <LottieView>event.object;

NativeScript Vue


If you want to use this plugin with Vue, do this in your app.js or main.js:

import LottieView from '@nativescript-community/ui-lottie/vue';


This will install and register LottieView component to your Vue instance and now you can use the plugin.


<Page class="page">
<LottieView height="130" src="PinJump.json" :loop="true" :autoPlay="true" @loaded="lottieViewLoaded"></LottieView>

export default {
methods: {
lottieViewLoaded(args) {
this._lottieView = args.object;
data() {
return {
_lottieView: null,


:fire: You can find animations in the sample-effects folder.


Place your animation files in the NS app's app/App_Resources/Android/src/main/assets folder.

Note: In a nativescript-vue project the above folder may not exist. Place the files in platforms/android/app/src/main/assets.


Place your animations files in your app/App_Resources/iOS/ folder.
