In this guide we are going to take a look at how developers in your Team can see your design Specs using Anima.

Guide Overview


How to Share Specs

Once your design is finished and you’ve specified Layout properties, it is time to share Specs with developers.

Step 1: Sync

  1. Go to the Export tab of the Anima panel
  2. In Specs, click Sync
  3. Select the Project/Team you would like to Sync it to
  4. Click Sync, and then Open

Step 2: Share

  1. Click Share in the top right corner of the screen
  2. Assign your team if not already assigned
  3. Optional: Invite guests which are not team members to view


If developers do not need to edit designs, add them as Viewers, it’s free!

The screenshot below shows that in Sketch, in the selected ‘MenuButton’ layer, the Top and Right Pins are selected.

The below screenshot of the Specs in the browser shows that selecting the same “MenuButton” layer in the browser reveals the Layout specs as well.

It also shows that the selected “MenuButton” layer is pinned to Top and Right by 20px.
