Build Status CDNJS dependencies Status devDependencies Status

πŸ’Ž The powerful Sass library for creating CSS transitions and animations. Originally integrated into Foundation for Apps, the code is now a standalone library, used by Foundation for Sites and Foundation for Apps. Made by your friends at ZURB.


Install Motion UI with npm or Bower.

npm install motion-ui --save
bower install motion-ui --save

Then to build with Sass (Autoprefixer is required):

// Add the load path "[modules_folder]/motion-ui/src" to your Sass configuration
@import 'motion-ui';

@include motion-ui-transitions;
@include motion-ui-animations;

Autoprefixer is required for the Sass installation as Motion UI uses unprefixed transition and animation properties. We recommend you to install PostCSS and Autoprefixer.

Or to use the equivalent pre-compiled CSS, import the Motion UI standalone CSS file dist/motion-ui.css or dist/motion-ui.min.css.

To easily transition elements in and out using Motion UI classes, import the Motion UI JavaScript library dist/motion-ui.js or dist/motion-ui.min.js.
