Livemove is a standalone animation builder with a visual editor that is compatible with multiple website platforms. In fact, you can easily customize the animation effects of elements on your Site without coding for any platform.
It works with WordPress, Webflow, ReactJS, and any page that requires logging in.
Step by Step to create your first animation
In this tutorial, we provide a step-by-step guide on using Litemove across different platforms (Saas method) . If you are proficient in WordPress, you can simply install our plugin and bypass this tutorial.
Create a project
You can immediately edit elements’ animations without requiring additional plugins for your site
-> Click on “Add new project” to initiate your first project
A popup appears to require “Project Name” and your target “Website URL”
Enter the project name and the URL of your target website
Note: Each project can contain multiple distinct pages, each associated with a parent website URL. If you want to apply Litemove to another website, you’ll need to create a new project.
For instance: we will make a demo with website https://softlite.io/
-> Click on “Create Project” to proceed
Add a target page to Project
In the next step, Click on the added Project
A dashboard will display the pages of your target site. You’ll need to manually add pages to bring them to the Editor.
There are two ways to achieve this
Enter input URL
You can directly embed the page URL into the provided box (top-right of your screen)
This is the most popular and quickest way to add a target public page into your project
For instance, we embed a page URL https://softlite.io/litemove-demo/
Then Click on “Add Page”
Immediately, an item display on this project dashboard
Use Litemove Extension
Alternatively, we’ve developed a Litemove Extension for the Chrome browser, which you can consider setting up.
In some cases, you need to use this extension to add pages
- Private Pages
- Pages made by React, Angular, Vue, etc
- Pages require to log in
For example, you can use it in your WordPress dashboard or any web dashboard
Go to your target page, it’s better when scrolling down to the end of page (to make sure all of your elements on this page are already loaded)
Click on the extension icon, choose the corresponding project, and then click on “Add Page.”
Returning to the current Project dashboard, you’ll find the added page there. Click on “View Page”
You have two options for the Timeline: you can import an existing one or create a new one.
