How might LC support interactive and interruptible animations as shown in this video on Advanced Animations with UIKit?
This capability is generally applicable to any animation using UIKit. Even non-moving transitions, such as blurring, are supported in an interactive way.
If supported by LC, it would be useable beyond just moving from card to card or swiping out a sidebar.
But of course, the particular capability shown in the video is OS-specific. Whereas LC strives to be platform agnostic.
