Component Props

All moti components have a few useful props:

  • animate Magically animate any value passed here
  • from The initial animation styles when the component mounts
  • exit Unmount animation styles. This works the exact same as framer-motion's exit prop, and requires wrapping your component with AnimatePresence. The only difference is you import AnimatePresence from moti.
  • transition Take full control over your animation configuration. You can set options for your entire animtation (such as type: 'timing'), or set transition options per-style (translateY: { type: 'timing' }).
  • exitTransition The exact same as transition, except that it only applies to exit animations.
  • state If you're using the useAnimationState hook, you should pass the state it returns to this prop.
  • onDidAnimate Callback function called after finishing a given animation.
    • First argument is the style prop string (opacity, scale, etc.)
    • The second argument is whether the animation finished or not (boolean)
    • The third argument is value, which only exists in a sequence.
    • The fourth argument is an event dictionary.
      • It has an attemptedValue field, which indicates the value that the animation tried to get to.
      • This is probably a better field to check for than the third argument.
      • As long as the second argument, finished, is true, then the attemptedValue represents that the value that was animated to.


Define animation configurations for exiting components.

Options passed to exitTransition will only apply to the exit prop, when a component is exiting.

// the animate prop uses the transition
transition={{ type: 'spring' }}
animate={{ opacity: 1, scale: 1 }}
// when exiting, it will use a timing transition
exitTransition={{ type: 'timing' }}
exit={{ opacity: 0, scale: 0.1 }}

By default, exit uses transition to configure its animations, so this prop is not required.

However, if you pass exitTransition, it will override transition for exit animations.

To see how to use this prop, see the transition docs.
