In previous post we talked about how to do animation in Compose using animateXXXAsState() function. And also see that though easy to use, it has limited customization capabilities.

Now, let’s take a look at a lower level(and more powerful) way: Animatable.

fun AnimatableDemo() {
    val coroutineScope = rememberCoroutineScope()
    val anim = remember {
        Animatable(48.dp, Dp.VectorConverter)

        modifier = Modifier
            .clickable {
                coroutineScope.launch {
                    val current = anim.value
                    anim.snapTo(current + 40.dp)
                    anim.animateTo(current + 20.dp)

As we can see, we are able to control the animation more freely.

Actually, animateXXXAsState() is using Animatable under the hood!
