In React.js, you can handle animations in several ways. Here are some options:

  1. React Transition Group: React Transition Group is a popular library for handling animations in React. It provides a set of components and utilities for managing the animation lifecycles. You can use components like CSSTransition, Transition, or TransitionGroup to add animations to your React components.
  2. React Animation Libraries: There are several animation libraries available for React that provide pre-defined animations and easy-to-use APIs. Some popular choices include React Spring, React Pose, React Move, and React Transition Group. These libraries offer a wide range of animations and can simplify the process of adding animations to your React components.
  3. CSS Animations: You can also use CSS animations directly in React. By using CSS keyframes and CSS classes, you can define animations and apply them to React components. You can add or remove classes based on the component state to trigger the animations.
  4. Animation Hooks: React provides hooks, such as useEffect and useState, that you can leverage to handle animations. You can use useEffect to trigger animations when certain conditions are met, and useState to manage the animation state.
  5. Custom Animation: If none of the above options suit your needs, you can create custom animation logic using JavaScript animations libraries like GSAP (GreenSock Animation Platform) or Framer Motion. These libraries offer powerful animation capabilities and can be integrated with React components.


Remember to choose the animation method that best fits your project requirements, performance considerations, and personal preference.
