Spline, a powerful animation tool, allows you to create stunning animations that can be seamlessly integrated into your Webflow projects.

In this guide, we'll walk you through the step-by-step process of integrating Spline animations into Webflow, allowing you to bring your web designs to life with ease.

Step 1: Create Your Spline Animation

  • Sign in to your Spline account or create one if you don't have an account yet.
  • Use Spline's intuitive interface to design and fine-tune your animation until you're satisfied with the result.
  • Export your animation as a JSON file. This file will contain the animation data that you'll integrate into Webflow.

Step 2: Access Your Webflow Project

Step 3: Upload the JSON File

Step 4: Add an Embed Element

  • Drag and drop an "Embed" element onto your page where you want the animation to appear.

Step 5: Configure the Embed Element

  • Click on the "Embed" element you just added.
  • In the settings panel on the right, you'll find an option for "Code." Click on it to open the code editor.

Step 6: Insert the Spline Animation Code

  • In the code editor, paste the following code snippet, replacing "your-animation.json" with the actual file name of your JSON animation file: Copy code<div data-spline-animation="your-animation.json"></div>
  • Save your changes.

Step 7: Adjust Spline Animation Settings

  • You can further customize the appearance and behavior of your Spline animation by adjusting the code. For example, you can control the animation's size, position, and responsiveness.

Step 8: Publish Your Webflow Project

  • After adding and configuring the Spline animation, make sure to save your changes.
  • Publish your Webflow project to see your Spline animation live on your website.

Step 9: Preview and Test
