React Animations - Bootstrap 4 & Material Design

React Bootstrap animations are illusions of motions for web elements. +70 animations generated by CSS only, work properly on every browser.

Note: This documentation is for an older version of Bootstrap (v.4). A newer version is available for Bootstrap 5. We recommend migrating to the latest version of our product - Material Design for Bootstrap 5.
Go to docs v.5

Basic usage

Using our animation is simple. Wrap the content you want to animate into the Animation component and specify its type. Check out the API section for more advanced options!

                        import React from "react";
                        import { MDBAnimation } from "mdbreact";

                        const AnimationPage = () => {
                            return (
                                <MDBAnimation type="bounce" infinite>
                                    <img className="img-fluid" alt="" src="" />

                        export default AnimationPage;

React Animations - API

In this section you will find advanced information about the Animation component. You will find out which modules are required, what are the possibilities of configuring the component, and what events and methods you can use in working with it.

Animation import statement

In order to use Animation component make sure you have imported proper module first.

          import { MDBAnimation } from "mdbreact";

API Reference: Animation Properties

The table below shows the configuration options of the MDBAnimation component.

Name Type Default Description Example
className String Adds custom classes <MDBAutocomplete className="myClass" />
type String The props defines the kind of animation desired <MDBAnimation type="bounce" />
count Number 1 The number of iterations the animation should have <MDBAnimation count={4} />
duration String 1s Defines the speed of animation, takes a string consisting of a number and a unit indicator (s/ms) <MDBAnimation duration="5s" />
delay String 0 Sets the amount of time that should pass before the initial iteration of animation, takes a string consisting of a number and a unit indicator (s/ms) <MDBAnimation delay="5s" />
infinite Bolean false Makes an animation go for eternity. Note: it overwrites the count prop <MDBAnimation infinite />
reveal Bolean false Setting this option makes the component postpone the animation untill the viewport reaches it's relative position <MDBAnimation reveal />

API Reference: Animation Methods

We can fire events on arbitrary stages of animation. The props below take in functions that resolve whenever the related stage is reached.

Name Parameters Description Example
onAnimationStart Fires once an animation starts <MDBAnimation onAnimationStart={this.handleStart} >
onAnimationIteration Function gets executed every time an animation happens. To have things happening only on particular iterations (say, every time for the first five times and then every fith one), it is enough to create a variable being incremented within a function and define a simple if statement to see, whether the ongoing iteration number fullfills the requirement (like if (count < 6 || count % 5 == 0){yourFunction}) <MDBAnimation onAnimationIteration={this.yourFunction} >
onAnimationEnd Function shall take place after the final iteration of an animation <MDBAnimation onAnimationStart={this.onAnimationEnd} >

Using the Animation component means having over seventy ready-to-use animation types. They are inputted as strings into the type prop.

Reveal animations when scrolling

Thanks to MDB you can easily launch an animation on page scroll. It is just as easy as adding the reveal prop to the Animation component!

                        import React from "react";
                        import { MDBAnimation } from "mdbreact";

                        const AnimationPage = () => {
                            return (
                                    <MDBAnimation reveal type="bounceInUp">
                                        <img alt="A view on mountains." className="img-fluid" src="" />
                                    <MDBAnimation reveal type="tada">
                                        <img alt="Cottage on a lake surrounded by mountains." className="img-fluid" src="" />
                                    <MDBAnimation reveal type="fadeInLeft">
                                        <img alt="A boat floating on an ocean" className="img-fluid" src="" />

                                    <MDBAnimation reveal type="fadeInRight">
                                        <img alt="View on mountains from mountain top." className="img-fluid" src="" />
                                    <MDBAnimation reveal type="fadeInRight">
                                        <img alt="Rocky shore in the morning." className="img-fluid" src="" />
