Best JavaScript & CSS Animation Libraries for UI Designers

by Sri Balaji J

Animation is a method in which figures are manipulated to appear as moving images. In traditional animation, images are drawn or painted by hand on transparent celluloid sheets to be photographed and exhibited on film. Today, most animations are made with computer-generated imagery (CGI). For easier animation, there are many libraries and frameworks in various languages. With the help of these, we could make animations for movies and games in a simpler way. Here I've listed some of such libraries which can be used to get into animation.

Lottie.js A Lottie is a JSON-based animation file format that enables designers to ship animations on any platform as easily as shipping static assets. They are small files that work on any device and can scale up or down without pixelation. Animate.css Animate.css is a library of ready-to-use, cross-browser animations for use in your web projects. Animate.css is a fast and efficient solution for adding CSS animations. Using it can speed up your workflow and create more readable code. Great for emphasis, home pages, sliders, and attention-guiding hints. GreenSock (GSAP) The GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP) animates anything JavaScript can touch (CSS properties, SVG, React, canvas, generic objects, whatever) and solves countless browser inconsistencies, all with blazing speed (up to 20x faster than jQuery).

Anime.js Anime.js is a small, lightweight JavaScript library with a simple and small powerful API. It works with the DOM element, CSS, and JavaScript object. Magic Animations Magic Animations is one impressive animation library available. It has many different animations, many of which are quite unique to this library. As with Animate.css, you can implement Magic by simply importing the CSS file. Zdog Zdog is a 3D JavaScript engine for canvas and SVG. With Zdog, you can design and render simple 3D models on the Web. Zdog is a pseudo-3D engine. Its geometries exist in 3D space but are rendered as flat shapes.

CSShake CSShake is a CSS-based animation framework that concentrates on making UI elements shake. This library includes a variety of CSS classes that you may use to create various animated shake elements for your project. AniJS AniJS lets you create animated styling for your website without any JavaScript or CSS coding! You can specify all your animations with HTML using a simple If-On-Do-To syntax.
