Popular Alternatives to GreenSock JS

  • CSS Animations: For simple animations, CSS provides built-in animation capabilities that are easy to use and don't require an external library.
  • jQuery: Once the standard for web animations, jQuery offers basic animation features but lacks the performance and advanced capabilities of GSAP.
  • Anime.js: A lightweight library for JavaScript animations, offering a simple API and good performance, but not as feature-rich as GSAP.
