Join the community on Spectrum

Moment.js is a fantastic time & date library with lots of great features and utilities. However, if you are working on a performance sensitive web application, it might cause a huge performance overhead because of its complex APIs and large bundle size.

Large bundle size

Problems with Moment.js:

If you are not using timezone but only a few simple functions from moment.js, this might bloat your app, and therefore is considered overkill. dayjs has a smaller core and has very…

bezier-easing Build Status

BezierEasing provides Cubic Bezier Curve easing which generalizes easing functions (ease-in, ease-out, ease-in-out, ...any other custom curve) exactly like in CSS Transitions.

Implementing efficient lookup is not easy because it implies projecting the X coordinate to a Bezier Curve This micro library uses fast heuristics (involving dichotomic search, newton-raphson, sampling) to focus on performance and precision.

It is heavily based on implementations available in Firefox and Chrome (for the CSS transition-timing-function property).

Usage

var easing = BezierEasing(0, 0, 1, 0.5);
// easing allows to project x in [0.0,1.0] range onto the bezier-curve defined by the 4 points (see schema below).
console.log(easing(0.0)); // 0.0
console.log(easing(0.5)); // 0.3125
console.log(easing(1.0)); // 1.0

Photon seems deprecated. There is no commit since 2017. I don't understand why you listed it here.
