Top animation libraries for React

There are a lot of react animation libraries available for reactjs. The top ones are listed below.

  • Framer Motion Alt Text

Motion shares the simple animation and gesture API as the Framer library while maintaining HTML and SVG semantics.
This makes it simple to port your high-fidelity prototypes to a production-ready environment, or make something completely new!

  • React Spring Alt Text

React-spring is a spring-physics based animation library that should cover most of your UI-related animation needs. It gives you tools flexible enough to confidently cast your ideas into moving interfaces.

  • React Transition Group

Exposes simple components useful for defining entering and exciting transitions. React Transition Group is not an animation library like React-Motion, it does not animate styles by itself. Instead, it exposes transition stages, manages classes and group elements, and manipulates the DOM in useful ways, making the implementation of actual visual transitions much easier

Nice list, framer motion is quite powerful and easy to use, but I've found that it's quite slow (laggy) on most lower end android devices, I'd recommend GSAP animation with react

Thank you very much for your recommendation.
I tried to make the list specific to React only.
So, I didn't thought about GSAP.
