npm install react-adobe-animate
# or
yarn add react-adobe-animate



  • React
  • CreateJS – add this to your page <script src=""></script>
  • Your animation – add .js file exported from Adobe Animate to page with <script> tag

How to use


In your index.html file you should import CreateJS and any other animation js file. Note that this should be done before import of your main jsx file to ensure that they are loaded before React script is executed.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <title>React Adobe Animate example</title>
    <div id="root"></div>
    <script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="./lishtml5-with-background.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="./lishtml5.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="/src/your-main-react-file.jsx"></script>


react-adobe-animate exposes a AnimateCC component used to render the animation. For more details on the props passed to the component please see Props.

import { useState } from "react";
import { AnimateCC, GetAnimationObjectParameter } from "react-adobe-animate";

const App = () => {
  const [paused, setPaused] = useState(true);
  const [animationObject, getAnimationObject] = useState<GetAnimationObjectParameter|null>(null);
  const onClick = () => setPaused(!paused);


  return (
    <div style={{ width: "400px" }}>


      <button onClick={onClick}>{paused ? "Unpause" : "Pause"}</button><br />


To use the component with Next.js you have to include CreateJS and Animate files (you have to put those into public folder first) with the Script component.

For detailed example see examples/next/pages/index.tsx.


Prop name Type Required Description
animationName string true Name of animation (exportRoot = new lib.animationName(); in js file. There the name is (lib.animationName = function. Also usually name of published file)
composition string false If you have two animations with same name you can specify an id of that animation. You can get it from .html file generate by Adobe Animate (var comp=AdobeAn.getComposition("C1475B64B160904BB90B34246A5FF54B");)
getAnimationObject function false It is fired after component was mounted. It takes 1 argument – animation object that enables you to fire functions created in Adobe Animate
paused boolean false Whether an animation should be paused
onError function false Function called whenever an error is thrown inside the component

All other props will be passed to div surrounding canvas


How do I insert animations published from the same file?

Unfortunately it isn't possible to export from Adobe Animate two unique animations. However you can make one! Simply replace all occurrences of composition id inside your .js file of an animation to one created by you. Composition id is this long string in var comp=AdobeAn.getComposition("C1475B64B160904BB90B34246A5FF54B"); found in .html file published by Adobe Animate.
