In your project root:

npm install --save popmotion

In your javascript module:

import { tween } from 'popmotion';

File include

Download popmotion.global.min.js from our GitHub repo and include it in your HTML document:

<script src="path/to/popmotion.global.min.js"></script>

Popmotion is then available as the global variable popmotion.

Quick start

Creating basic motion like tweens and physics in Popmotion is simple. For example, here's a simple tween that prints its output to the console:

import { tween } from 'popmotion';

  to: 100,
  onUpdate: (v) => console.log(v)

To use that tween to move an actual DOM element, we can create a CSS renderer.

const ballRenderer = css(document.getElementById('ball'));

  to: 100,
  onUpdate: (v) => ballRenderer.set('x', v)
