Learn React Native Gestures and Animations – In this article, I would like us to do five things. First, to discuss why the topic of gestures and animations is so peculiar in React Native, and what kinds of strategies and APIs we are going to use.
In order to implement user interactions that run smooth as butter. From there, we can look at transitions. Transitions as the easiest way to animate components in React Native. And we’re going to build a component with two states.
And we are going to declare a transition to animate nicely from one state to the other. And then, we’re going to build the simple timing animation that we can loop, pause, resume, pause, resume, using Bare Metal animation APIs.
Getting to know these low level APIs would be the key to success for us to harness and animations in React Native. And then, it will be time to add gestures into the mix. And we are going to build this nice wallet user experience. So we can swipe for cards nicely.
Finally, I would like to show you what these gestures and animations integrate very nicely with SVG, and we’re going to build this really cool circular slider using gestures and SVG animations.
This workshop will only be scratching the surface of the exciting wall of gestures and animation in React Native. And to conclude, I would give you all the resources that I know of, in case you are interested to go further with this topic.
