XPAC Lottie Interactive Animations


Designed for the next generation WordPress websites, the plugin allows you to add light-weight Lottie animations anywhere in the Gutenberg editor, including the Site Editor and Widget editor. Also, our plugin covers comprehensive interactivity settings to set a custom behavior for your Lottie Animation, while the high-quality coding and optimisations provide future-proof functionality for you to enjoy and to impress your visitors.


  • Chain mode on autoplay state. You can control the speed and delay of the animation.
  • Chain mode on loop state. You can control the count, speed and delay of the animation.
  • Chain mode with click state. Plays animation on click with above mentioned control available.
  • Chain mode with hover state. Plays animation when hovering mouse on it, above mentioned contols availible.
  • Chain mode with none state. Does not play the animation.
  • Scroll mode on seek state. Plays the animation back and forth depending on the scroll. Allows basic controls plus visibility start and visibility end options for complete customization. The loop toggle plays animation after the ‘visibility end’ percentage is reached.
  • Scroll mode on loop state plays an animation on loop after the percentage set from ‘visibility start’ is reached.
  • Scroll mode on play state. Plays the animation once after the percentage set from ‘visibility start’ is reached.
  • Link: you can add internal or external links to animations.


  • Install and activate the plugin
  • Inside the WordPress BLock Editor or Site Editor, find the “Lottie Animation” block and add it.
  • Add a URL or upload the JSON file of your preferred animation.
  • Check the animation settings on the right sidebar, where you can control the options, such as interactivity mode & state, animation speed, delay, add a link and much more.
  • Put the block inside a group or column to have controll over its dimensions, positioning, backgroung color, etc.


With some FSE themes, the animation may not be rendered within the Site Editor (not to be confused with the Gutenberg block editor) when set inside a template or template part, but it works properly on the front end regardless. This is due to the fact that the Site Editor is still in Beta state and event listeners are not properly applied. Following WordPress updates are expected to fix this.

Great plugin to integrate Lottie files locally. This is important for Europe because of the GDPR. Many functions do exactly what they should. It works very well with GeneratePress and GenerateBlocks. Many thanks from Germany / Hamburg.
