React-spring: on animations and hooks

Alec Larson at ReactEurope 2019

React-spring is a popular React animation library that explores physics based UI animation. This talk will be about the state of React animation in general, the methods and techniques employed, the journey we took with react-spring, and how Reacts new hooks feature can change the way animation is supposed to work for the foreseeable future. Animated hooks can mend the gap between the declarative and the imperative and express intent more clearly, which has big implications on not only the moving thing itself but also with how we combine it with all the other things going on around it, from the data-model to user interaction.
