What's the best way to implement spring animations in production HTML / CSS / JS? I'm wondering how to make my nice Framer prototype real, and not finding good frameworks.

Animate CSS is not a bad start. Modify it as you see fit. But yes I agree it's been hard to find a good one.

+1 to CSS transition if you could drop ANCIENT browsers. but if not, velocity.js could be an answer. just like this `element.velocity({ width: 50 }, [ 250, 15 ]);`

Sam They don't offer spring easing, unfortunately, and the animations just feel a little off to me. I'm looking for animations that are metaphorically "pixel perfect".

Loren Baxter

Cha That looks like a nice solution for two-variable spring easing (tension, friction). Gonna give it a shot. Thanks!

FWIW Koen also suggested Velocity.js a few months ago (I just didn't find it earlier).

Koen Bok

Yup, Velocity is the way to go.

(I helped the Velocity guys implementing the same spring physics Framer uses under the hood)

Loren Baxter

Koen Thanks for doing that :)
