GSAP (GreenSock Animation Platform)

Ultra high-performance, professional-grade animation for the modern web

GSAP is a JavaScript library for creating high-performance animations that work in every major browser. No other library delivers such advanced sequencing, reliability, API efficiency, and tight control while solving real-world problems on over 4 million sites. GSAP works around countless browser inconsistencies; your animations 'just work'. CSS properties, SVG, canvas libraries, custom properties of generic objects, colors, strings...animate anything! At its core, GSAP is a high-speed property manipulator, updating values over time with extreme accuracy. It's up to 20x faster than jQuery! See the "Why GSAP?" article for what makes GSAP so special.

Getting started video

Unlike monolithic frameworks that dictate how you structure your apps, GSAP is completely flexible; sprinkle it wherever you want. React, Vue, Angular or vanilla JS - doesn't matter. Simply put, GSAP is the most robust high-performance animation library on the planet, which is probably why every major ad network excludes it from file size calculations.

Zero dependencies.

This is the public repository for GreenSock's JavaScript tools like GSAP and Draggable. "GSAP" describes all of the animation-related tools which include TweenLite, TweenMax, TimelineLite, TimelineMax, various plugins, extra easing functions, etc.

CDN

TweenMax is most popular because it has all the essential tools plus several common plugins, all in one file:

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/gsap/2.0.2/TweenMax.min.js"></script>

Click the green "Download GSAP" button at greensock.com for more options. Click "customize" at the bottom of the resulting window to see all the extra plugins and tool URLs.

Draggable, for example, is at:

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/gsap/2.0.2/utils/Draggable.min.js"></script>

Most ad networks have GSAP on their CDNs as well, so contact them for the appropriate URL(s).

NPM

See the full guide to using GSAP via NPM.

npm install gsap

The default (main) file is TweenMax which includes TweenLite, TimelineLite, TimelineMax, all of the eases (except CustomEase/CustomWiggle/CustomBounce) and the following plugins: css, roundProps, bezier, attr, and directionalRotation.

//typical import
import {TweenMax, Power2, TimelineLite} from "gsap/TweenMax";
 
//or get to the parts that aren't included inside TweenMax:
import Draggable from "gsap/Draggable";
import ScrollToPlugin from "gsap/ScrollToPlugin";
 
//or, as of 2.0.0, all tools are exported from the "all" file (excluding bonus plugins):
import {TweenMax, CSSPlugin, ScrollToPlugin, Draggable, Elastic} from "gsap/all";
//if tree shaking dumps plugins, just reference them somewhere in your code like:
const plugins = [CSSPlugin, ScrollToPlugin]; 

As of version 2.0.0, the NPM files are ES modules, though there's also a /umd/ directory with UMD files for extra compatibility.

For Club GreenSock-only plugins, download them from your GreenSock.com account and then treat them as part of your own JS payload or drop them into your node_modules/gsap folder. Post other questions in our forums and we'd be happy to help.
