  • Stimulus

    A modest JavaScript framework for the HTML you already have

    And it was simple from a development standpoint, too — as Richárd explains. “We use a super tiny JS framework called Stimulus. It lets us create small JavaScript components that are controlled by HTML data attributes,” he continues. With just a few extra HTML data parameters, the team could control horizontal and vertical velocity based on the speed of scrolling. “So larger objects and elements can move slower and the smaller ones can move faster in the virtual space,” Richárd concludes.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • GreenSock-JS

    There is a time when you will need to reach for JavaScript. If you want an animated scroll experience, this is where JavaScript will be called for. GreenSock is the best JavaScript library for web animation.
