The book assisted you in understanding how animations should be incorporated into your app’s design and in making adjustments that enhanced both the code structure and interaction frame rate of your app. You may implement animation in a way that is both visually attractive and programmatically maintainable thanks to the technological foundation this book gives you. The book’s readers will learn how to create loading sequences that keep users engaged rather than causing them to lose interest, how to use basic physics principles to make apps naturally react to user input, how to fully utilise CSS transforms to create rich depth in animations, and how to efficiently use JavaScript animation libraries like Velocity.js. You’ll discover the significance of animation, its proper use, and how to connect those lessons to the code that powers it all.

Web Animation:

Animation is a method, or you could say a technique, that makes things appear more appealing, vibrant, and attractive. In essence, it is a manipulation technique that allows us to make the content move. In order to make our online apps look appealing and ultimately draw in more users, animations are a necessity. Therefore, web applications can implement HTML element animations using either CSS or Javascript. Advanced effects like boune, stop, pause, rewind, or slow-down are used with JavaScript animations. These advanced effects are based on the premise that, unlike CSS animations, we can animate by moving DOM elements around the page in accordance with a pattern established by a logical equation or function. So in essence, Javascript animations are used in regular web apps. Use JavaScript animations when you need control over when and what to animate, or if you want complex effects like bounce, stop, pause, rewind, or slow-down. I’ll sum up by adding that animation is a necessity for every web application that wants to be a pleasure for the viewer’s eyes.
