GSAP on React Native!
This is a demo showing basic usage of GSAP's TweenMax and TimelineMax in React Native by simply tweening state using HZDG's awesome gsap-react-plugin.
A few notes:
- This uses my fork of GreenSock-JS (https://github.com/skevy/GreenSock-JS/tree/node-compat), in order to play nice with the fact that React Native doesn't have "document" defined.
gsap-react-pluginhandles tweening the state, while React Native itself has already polyfilled
requestAnimationFrame(which uses React Native's optimized RCTTimer)
This is not the end-all-be-all of React Native animation, and has not been extensively tested more than just a few proof's of concept and with simple animations.
Looking to the future of using GSAP with React Native, a plugin could be written to directly tween using React Native's
setNativeProps, which would avoid a full render pass, as @sahrens recommends here.
