layerJS vs React Move: What are the differences?
Developers describe layerJS as "UI composition & animation in pure HTML". UX patterns like menus, sliders, layers & lightboxes, parallax effects, page-swipes, zoom effects, etc. are really just interactive animated layers. layerJS is a simple open source library that provides one simple universal concept to create such patterns in pure HTML. On the other hand, React Move is detailed as "Beautiful, data-driven animations for React". React-move allows you to define your animations using durations, delays and ease functions. In react-motion you use spring configurations to define your animations.
Some of the features offered by layerJS are:
- Universal - One library for all UX patterns. Slider, Popups, Accordeon, Menu, Parallax, (Touch) Gestures, etc.
- Pure HTML - Layout your interface with HTML attributes and define interaction with Links
- Plays with - Angular, VueJS, React, jQuery. Use your framework to modify frame content or generate frames dynamically.
On the other hand, React Move provides the following key features:
- Built-in support for interpolating: Strings, Numbers, Colors, SVG paths, SVG transforms
- Animate HTML, SVG & React-Native
- Fine-grained control of delay, duration and easing
layerJS and React Move are both open source tools. It seems that React Move with 5.93K GitHub stars and 183 forks on GitHub has more adoption than layerJS with 1.73K GitHub stars and 75 GitHub forks.
