re: Anime.js lightweight JavaScript animation library VIEW POST


Lightweight in what way? I have built and I am building quite complex and powerful animations and sequences with Anime. It is now my go-to animation library for javascript. v3 is a complete overhaul, and it is quite optimised to avoid flickering and repaints. kudos to the author of Anime!


Thank you for the comment, Adrian! By lightwight, I mean that Anime.js is just about 14kb minified, and only about 6.2kb gzipped.


Thanks for clarifying this. In some ambiguous contexts, lightweight might imply having less features / functionality (than the competition), which is not the case here. Anime is a fully-grown library with most of the features that you would need when working with animation in JS. And, yes, it has a really small (file)size - and this makes one love it even more! :)

Indeed, it is very functional and has many great features out of the box! So I totally agree with you that Anime.js is a mature tool for creating complex animations. And, yes, 'lightweight' - is just about its size.
