Make your websites and applications more interactive and aesthetically pleasing by using these ⬇️ ReactJS animation libraries.

React Reveal

React Spring

React Spring is inspired by react-motion and provides a very much similar approach to animation design. It attempts to improve
performance over react-motion.

React Anime

React Anime as the name suggests is a React Wrapper for one of the popular animation library Anime.js. All Anime.js functionalities wrapped into their declarative form.

npm i react-anime
