How can I chain animations in anime.js?

Tags: ,



Is there any way to chain animations in anime.js or have queues / groups of animations that I can wait for in order to proceed with other animations?

Answer

Each animation with anime returns a promise, so you can use async/await in combination with Promise.all, do remember, though, Promise.all makes it so that all animations run concurrently. For example, let’s say you want 3 animations all to run at the same time, then, after that group is done, do another animation:

async function animateLockAndBackground() {
  const bigLockAnimation = anime({
    targets: '#big-lock',
    strokeDashoffset: [0, 5],
    easing: 'easeInOutSine',
    duration: 250,
    easing: 'easeInSine'
  }).finished;

  const lockLineAnimation = anime({
    targets: '#lock-line',
    strokeDashoffset: [0, 3],
    translateY: [{
        value: '-2px',
        duration: 350,
        easing: 'easeOutExpo'
      },
      {
        value: '2px',
        duration: 350,
        easing: 'easeOutExpo'
      },
      {
        value: '-2px',
        duration: 350,
        easing: 'easeOutExpo'
      },
    ],
  }).finished;

  const innerCircleAnimation = anime({
    targets: '#inner-circle',
    translateY: [{
        value: '-1px',
        duration: 250,
        easing: 'easeOutExpo'
      },
      {
        value: '1px',
        duration: 250,
        easing: 'easeOutExpo'
      },
      {
        value: '-1px',
        duration: 250,
        easing: 'easeOutExpo'
      },
      {
        value: 0,
        duration: 250,
        easing: 'easeOutExpo'
      },
    ],
  }).finished;

  await Promise.all([bigLockAnimation, lockLineAnimation, innerCircleAnimation]);
}

animateLockAndBackground().then(() => {
  console.log('First animation finished.');
  anime({
    targets: '.plugins-not-installed-text',
    translateY: [{
      value: '10px',
      duration: 750
    }]
  });
  anime({
    targets: '#lock-wrapper',
    translateY: [{
      value: '-10px',
      duration: 750
    }]
  });
  anime({
    targets: '#plugins-not-installed-screen',
    opacity: 0,
    duration: 500,
    easing: 'linear'
  }).finished.then(() => {
    console.log('Second animation finished.');
  });
});

    flex-direction: column;
    position: relative;

What, then, if you want to, inside that function, have the lock-line animate at the same time the 2 other elements are animating, so instead of 3 animation timelines, you only have 2? Here:

async function animateLockAndBackground() {
    const bigLockAnimation = anime({
        targets: '#big-lock',
        strokeDashoffset: [0, 5],
        easing: 'easeInOutSine',
        duration: 250,
        easing: 'easeInSine'
    }).finished;

    const innerCircleAnimation = anime({
        targets: '#inner-circle',
        translateY: [
            {value: '-1px', duration: 250, easing: 'easeOutExpo'},
            {value: '1px', duration: 250, easing: 'easeOutExpo'},
            {value: '-1px', duration: 250, easing: 'easeOutExpo'},
            {value: 0, duration: 250, easing: 'easeOutExpo'},
        ],
    }).finished;

    await Promise.all([bigLockAnimation, innerCircleAnimation]);
}

animateLockAndBackground().then(() => {
    return anime({
        targets: '#lock-line',
        strokeDashoffset: [0, 3],
        translateY: [
            {value: '-2px', duration: 350, easing: 'easeOutExpo'},
            {value: '2px', duration: 350, easing: 'easeOutExpo'},
            {value: '-2px', duration: 350, easing: 'easeOutExpo'},
        ],
    }).finished;
}).then(() => {
    anime({
        targets: '.plugins-not-installed-text',
        translateY: [
            {value: '10px', duration: 750}
        ]
    });
    anime({
        targets: '#lock-wrapper',
        translateY: [
            {value: '-10px', duration: 750}
        ]
    });
    anime({
        targets: '#plugins-not-installed-screen',
        opacity: 0,
        duration: 500,
        easing: 'linear'
    });
});

We moved that lock-line animation outside of the original group, made it wait for the group, then whatever else comes after the lock-line animates after.

You should think about an animation as a simple promise that you can chain.
