motify

import { motify } from 'moti'
const MotifiedComponent = motify(MyComponent)()

A higher-order component that turns any React Native class component into an animated moti component.

You can now animate like you normally would:

<MotifiedComponent animate={{ height: [50, 100] }} />

Under the hood, motify runs Animated.createAnimatedComponent for you, so don't pass an Animated.View.

Instead, just pass a normal View (or its equivalent).

Notice that motify() returns a function. At the moment, the function it returns doesn't take any arguments. But I like this composition pattern, so I built the API this way to account for using the returned function in the future.

Context#

motify is the function that Moti uses under the hood to create its primitives.

This is the component file in moti:

import { motify } from '@motify/core'
import {
View as RView,
Text as RText,
Image as RImage,
ScrollView as RScrollView,
SafeAreaView as RSafeAreaView,
} from 'react-native'
export const View = motify(RView)()
export const Text = motify(RText)()
export const Image = motify(RImage)()
export const ScrollView = motify(RScrollView)()
export const SafeAreaView = motify(RSafeAreaView)()

That should be all you need for any custom usage.
