Crafting Beautiful Experiences With Framer Motion​

Making smooth, performant and beautiful animations is hard. Framer Motion helps you overcome a lot of these struggles. In this course, I’ll guide you through everything of Framer Motion has to offer. Together, we take a look at all of Framer’s API’s, and craft impressive real-world projects.

Framer Motion is one of the best libraries in the React ecosystem.Unmatched in any other framework.​

But why?
Despite plain CSS getting more powerful every week, with amazing features like scroll driven animations, and view transitions, it still has its limitations. One of the biggest limitations is that you shouldn’t animate all properties of an element. For example animating properties like width, height, top, or left, could cause janky animations. It is best practice to manipulate an elements size and position by animation properties like translateX/Y and scale.

But why would Framer Motion do this any better than plain CSS?​
Framer Motion packs some ✨ magic ✨, which they call Layout Animations. When using layout animations to resize an element in width / height, Framer Motion uses calculations under the hood, to convert this resize into a scale and transform animation ?. This results in animations that always perform significantly better than plain CSS animations — almost without needing to think about this!

It doesn’t only do this for width/height though!​
