Usage

Lottie-Player

Add the element lottie-player and set the src property to a URL pointing to a valid Bodymovin JSON.

<lottie-player
  autoplay
  controls
  loop
  mode="normal"
  src="https://assets3.lottiefiles.com/packages/lf20_UJNc2t.json"
  style="width: 320px"
>
</lottie-player>

You may set and load animations programatically as well.

<lottie-player autoplay controls loop mode="normal" style="width: 320px">
</lottie-player>
const player = document.querySelector("lottie-player");
player.addEventListener("rendered", (e) => {
  //Load via URL
  player.load("https://assets3.lottiefiles.com/packages/lf20_UJNc2t.json");
  // or load via a Bodymovin JSON string/object
  player.load(
    '{"v":"5.3.4","fr":30,"ip":0,"op":38,"w":315,"h":600,"nm":"new", ... }'
  );
});

TGS-Player

Add the element tgs-player and set the src property to a URL pointing to a valid TGS JSON.

<tgs-player autoplay loop mode="normal" src="https//domain/example.tgs">
</tgs-player>

ReactJS & VueJS

Import the player either as

import * as LottiePlayer from "@lottiefiles/lottie-player";

or

require("@lottiefiles/lottie-player");

Use as follows

<lottie-player
  autoplay
  controls
  loop
  mode="normal"
  src="https://assets3.lottiefiles.com/packages/lf20_UJNc2t.json"
  style="width: 320px"
></lottie-player>

Typescript ReactJS

Import the player either as

import * as LottiePlayer from "@lottiefiles/lottie-player";

or

require("@lottiefiles/lottie-player");

Use as follows

<lottie-player
  autoplay
  controls
  loop
  mode="normal"
  src="https://assets3.lottiefiles.com/packages/lf20_UJNc2t.json"
  style="width: 320px"
></lottie-player>

For typescript projects an added step is required. The component must be declared as a JSX intrinsic element. Create a file 'declarations.d.ts' in the root of your project and add the code below to the file.

declare namespace JSX {
  interface IntrinsicElements {
    "lottie-player": any;
  }
}

Nuxt 2

Create a lottie-player.js file inside the /plugins folder and add the below code to the file:

import * as LottiePlayer from "@lottiefiles/lottie-player";


Open nuxt.config.js file and add the following entry to register the newly created plugin:

export default {
  plugins: [{ src: "~/plugins/lottie-player.js", mode: "client" }]
}

This is because the player script needs to be rendered on the browser/client side and we must configure Nuxt to load the script on the client side only.

You would then be able to use the player as follows inside any component:

<lottie-player
  autoplay
  controls
  loop
  style="width:400px"
  src="https://assets3.lottiefiles.com/packages/lf20_RItkEz.json"
  speed="1"
  debug
/>

Nuxt 3

The process for Nuxt 3 is slightly different.
Create a lottie-player.client.ts file inside the /plugins folder and add the below code to the file:

import * as LottiePlayer from "@lottiefiles/lottie-player";

export default LottiePlayer;


Your plugin will be automatically available throughout your Nuxt application thanks to the plugin auto-registration. Note the client suffix in the name of the plugin - this tells Nuxt to load it only on the client side, as the Lottie Player script can only be rendered in the browser.

You would then be able to use the player as follows inside any component:

<lottie-player
  autoplay
  controls
  loop
  style="width:400px"
  src="https://assets3.lottiefiles.com/packages/lf20_RItkEz.json"
  speed="1"
  debug
/>

NextJS

The process to import in NextJS is similar to Nuxt in the sense that on SSR mode, the library must be declared as a client side module. To do this, import the library within a react useEffect hook.

import React, { useRef } from "react";

export default function Home() {
  const ref = useRef(null);
  React.useEffect(() => {
    import("@lottiefiles/lottie-player");
  });
  return (
    <div className={styles.container}>
      <main className={styles.main}>
        <lottie-player
          id="firstLottie"
          ref={ref}
          autoplay
          controls
          loop
          mode="normal"
          src="https://assets4.lottiefiles.com/packages/lf20_gb5bmwlm.json"
          style={{ width: "300px", height: "300px" }}
        ></lottie-player>
      </main>
    </div>
  );
}

Do add a declaration file named declaration.d.ts to the root of the project as well

declare namespace JSX {
  interface IntrinsicElements {
    "lottie-player": any;
  }
}
