What is Greensock?
Is no longer a secret that flash and punk is dead. But what is GSAP? Well, the GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP) is a suite of tools for developing awesome scripted animations. Also, it is one of the most powerful JS animation libraries available right now.
I should mention three major things that make GSAP an amazing tool:
- Cross-browser compatibility: Yet I had some issues with IE11. Here I should mention the fact that Greensock has a great forum with lots of data as well on stackoverflow!
- Refined tools, total control: literally, you can create not just individual ‘tweens’ to animate but even a chain of ‘tweens’. You can nest other timelines as deeply as you wish! Greensock offers you a tool which has no limits in styling!
Greensock & Codepen
The great thing is that you can use greensock libraries on codepen for free! They provide you public CDN links to use it! Yes, in order to use Greensock for commercial you kinda need a license.
Codepen is one of the greatest things ever happened in the Front End industry. Nowadays, your Codepen profile is more relevant than your well-designed PDF CV, a thing which I enjoy.
Let’s have a look, and do not forget to let me know what you think!
