Animation brings interfaces to life. Thankfully, React has great open source libraries for animation. Let’s compare some popular options:
Framer Motion uses declarative props for animation:
Framer Motion allows CSS, SVG, gesture, and physics animations.
React Transition Group
React Transition Group offers class-based transitions:
Applies transition classes automatically when state changes.
React Spring uses a physics-based approach:
React Spring applies animated props declaratively.
- Framer Motion - Declarative props for CSS, SVG, gesture, physics
- React Transition Group - Class-based enter/leave transitions
- React Spring - Physics-based animation props
Each library brings unique strengths for animation to your React apps.
