Top 5 JavaScript animation libraries 2021

Animations are the game changer when it comes to quality user experience. Everyone wants to use it but in a way that website visitors don't want to quit. So I've gathered here best five JavaScript animation libraries. Let's start:

1. Anime.js

Anime.js is a lightweight JavaScript animation library with a simple, yet powerful API. It works with CSS properties, SVG, DOM attributes and JavaScript Objects.

Well just look at this example:

2. Vivus

Vivus is a lightweight JavaScript library (with no dependencies) that allows you to animate SVGs, giving them the appearence of being drawn.

Just interact with the example below by clicking and holding:

3. GSAP

GSAP is a JavaScript library that is turning developers into animation superheroes. It is one of the most popular javascript libraries out there. You can animate almost anything with the help of this library.

Just use this library to create awesome animation like one given below:

4. Typeit.js

Typeit.js allows creating awesome typing animation in your website. If you want to add typing animation on your website then go for it.

Just look at this cool story of a programmer

5. ScrollOut

ScrollOut.js is a javascript library that detects changes in scroll for reveal, parallax, and CSS Variable effects.

Just scroll down this codepen

May be I've missed some other cool libraries, just let me know in the comment section down below. And I can't forget Threejs also.
