Can't wait to try it! What I love about Haiku is that the file it exports plays well with Lottie. This is not a tool that is creating a closed ecosystem, but one that connects with and improves existing workflows. Kudos for that.
I once mentioned that an opportunity for a new product would be: A design tool that is to After Effects what Sketch was to Photoshop and Illustrator. For vector animations Haiku may be it.
Thanks for the kind words. We feel pretty passionately that open standards beat closed black boxes— expect some more news on that front in future too.

This looks fantastic! Any time I'm working with Sketch I keep finding myself going though weird tools to try that only kinda do what I'm trying to do but this looks like the full gambit. I can't wait to give this a shot in my workflow, I love how the UI pretty much explains myself.
Thanks Darren. We're similarly opinionated about existing tools. ;) Here's to hoping Haiku can help improve your workflow.
Created an account just to let you know this looks amazing, Nad. So ready to move on from PS an AE for this sort of thing and extra excited to hand off functional animations to my dev team.
So glad you went the route of an outside but linked app instead of a straight-up timeline sketch plugin. I know you're in beta but your i's and t's look dotted and crossed in this demo.
Created an account just for us? We're honoured.
Haiku being a standalone app is crucial to more features we're releasing both near and far. Stay tuned!
Looks like an awesome tool. Is this intended for animations or full prototypes? E.g., features like scrolling an app - fixed headers/footers, etc.
