Build fun web animations and win prizes - CodeSandbox Challenges

Web animations, especially when used right, help create fun, interactive and engaging experiences for your website visitors. However, more often than not, they can be quite difficult to implement.

As CodeSandbox is dedicated to making web developers as productive as possible, we partnered with Greensock (GSAP) to host some fun and creative challenges for the month of April. Greensock puts a lot of animation power in the hands of developers through it's robust JavaScript library and they have now made all the Club Greensock premium plugins now available on CodeSandbox via npm. šŸ”„

Every week through April, we shared a new creative coding challenge and a sandbox to get started building something fun. You can find out all about the challenges at https://greensock.com/challenges.

Challenges

The first challenge encouraged everyone to build something fun on Scrolling animations with ScrollTrigger. There were a lot of amazing submissions but Victor and Ismael took the top spots.
