Hello everyone

My name is Devang Saklani and I am a freelance Front-end Web developer from INDIA. I like creating things like websites, animations and writing blogs (however this is my first blog let's see how it goes😅).

I have been learning JS from few months and in first sight i loved it it's syntax, power and it's uses. Then I got into touch with JS libraries for extra functionality like ReactJS and then I came across AnimeJS. I was amazed at first by it's syntax and it's power, it's a amazing animation library through which you can do simple as well as super complex animations.

Don't know Anime JS? here's a quick intro!

What is AnimeJS?

  • 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.
  • and the final thing is It's really Underrated.

How to use AnimeJS?

  • First of all Install it. The installation steps are quite simple as we can use either a CDN network to use it or can directly install it through NPM. See official installation details here.

Basic usage:

  • I would recommend you to go to the official documentation for instructions because it is Super simple and Super interactive.

Now what I made using it:

I have made Some loading spinners using AnimeJS. These are some images/gifs:

Check out these animations live at this website.

Features (highlights):

  • Easy to use (simply copy & paste).
  • Source code is already minified.
  • Awesome animations.
  • 2 themes till now (stroked and filled) and a theme switch button.
  • A automation theme save feature which saves your theme even after page reload.
  • A Slider for better UX and keyboard compatible (use arrow keys to navigate).

Known issues

I know these animations are sick but this seriously needs some improvement and optimizations.. That's why I need your help in solving these bugs* and make some performance improvements.

Known bugs:

  • Sometimes the code source viewer does'nt shows anything.
  • The CPU also gets 100% used when using a old computer and causing frame drops 😥.
  • and Many other small bugs that haven't discovered yet.
