"Quality, easy to implement animations"

What do you like best?

For a front end developer looking for a stand-alone animation library, this is the best option. It can interop with JQuery (and other front end frameworks) very nicely, and heavily reduces complexity for animation-heavy projects like social hubs and complex widgets. When you do not want to spend hours debugging widget animations, it is nice knowing velocity will just handle it for you.

What do you dislike?

I wish there were multiple installation candidates. Compartmentalized libs that offer a single animation tool would make velocity JS usage less painful on smaller widgets. While velocity supports nearly every front end framework on the block, some frameworks already offer their own in-house animation library that is usually preferred over velocity.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check you front end framework docs first to see if it already has a preferred way of implementing animations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use velocity JS to quickly develop animations for one-off single page applications. It greatly reduces dev time for high-interactivity widgets, and is easy enough to install that you can rapidly strut out a small client project with it.

"Fun tool for motion in web pages"

What do you like best?

Velocity.js is probably the best standalone tool for handling animation and tweening in webpages. Lots of cool features and really easy to get running.

What do you dislike?

Most of these really cool features aren't practical for most situations. This is very fun for playing around, but with more sites moving toward static simplicity, this seems more like a fun weekend experiment for casual users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great product, but if you are already using jquery, be careful in including this as well. Make sure you need the additional features that come with the overhead of working with an additional library.

Also, make sure that you can't solve your problems using css instead, which is designed for animation and often leads to better and more performant results.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making fun web pages and experimenting with various web technologies. It's good to keep up with different web frameworks in case you need them, and velocity js is likely the best full featured solution for web page animation. I'm sure it can be used for other things, including game animations, but there are usually other solutions for those as well with better integration that still get the job done.

What Other Web Frameworks solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Animation so easy, grandma could do it!"

What do you like best?

Animating and adjusting animations is so simple. I don't have to think about how to make things move! Developers can pick up the tooling quickly. We don't have to worry about additional requirements and that is really nice.

What do you dislike?

The animation tooling is very robust, it can be challenging to pick up some of the interfaces in more complex animations, but I think it is all attributed to a learning curve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go overboard in the development phases, harness the powers and then gradually tone down the animations. The tooling is amazing and you will love it. Playing around with the animating power then toning it down will allow you to see what it can do, making the animations subtle will ensure the page feels alive but not look cheesy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to make interfaces and UI look and feel good in our games and web apps. Using Velocity has helped increase the speed at which we make, iterate, and adjust those animations. It has greatly helped us improve all areas of our games and not just the menus.
