Click to send

Hy Everyone, In this tutorial, we will create a click to send button with GSAP animations.

The GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP for short) is a powerful JavaScript library that enables front-end developers and designers to create robust timeline-based animations.

Click To Send

For creating this animated send button, we will need to create three files called index.html, style.css, and script.js. Let’s start with our index.html file.

index.html
