Impulse vs Origami: What are the differences?

Impulse: Dynamic JS Animations for the Mobile Web. Create animations that flow naturally from the user's movements. Rather than animating properties for a set amount of time, impulse takes a start position, end position, and velocity; Origami: A free design prototyping toolkit for Quartz Composer. Origami is a free toolkit for Quartz Composer—created by the Facebook Design team—that makes interactive design prototyping easy and doesn’t require programming.

Impulse and Origami belong to "Mobile Prototyping & Interaction Design Tools" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Impulse are:

  • Springing
  • Accelerating
  • Decelerating

On the other hand, Origami provides the following key features:

  • Switch- Toggles between on and off and remembers its current state.
  • Scroll- Lets you allow the user to scroll an image.
  • Bouncy Animation- Animate a changing value with a bouncy spring.
