BezierEasing provides Cubic Bezier Curve easing which generalizes easing functions (ease-in, ease-out, ease-in-out, ...any other custom curve) exactly like in CSS Transitions.
Implementing efficient lookup is not easy because it implies projecting the X coordinate to a Bezier Curve. This micro library uses fast heuristics (involving dichotomic search, newton-raphson, sampling) to focus on performance and precision.
It is heavily based on implementations available in Firefox and Chrome (for the CSS transition-timing-function property).
var easing = BezierEasing(0, 0, 1, 0.5); // easing allows to project x in [0.0,1.0] range onto the bezier-curve defined by the 4 points (see schema below). console.log(easing(0.0)); // 0.0 console.log(easing(0.5)); // 0.3125 console.log(easing(1.0)); // 1.0
(this schema is from the CSS spec)
BezierEasing(P1.x, P1.y, P2.x, P2.y)
It is the equivalent to CSS Transitions'
In the same way you can define in CSS
cubic-bezier(0.42, 0, 0.58, 1),
with BezierEasing, you can define it using
BezierEasing(0.42, 0, 0.58, 1) which have the `` function taking an X and computing the Y interpolated easing value (see schema).

- keep validating the tests (run
- not bring performance regression (compare with
npm run benchmark– don't rely 100% on its precision but it still helps to notice big gaps)
- Run the visual example:
