# Easing

The `Easing`

module implements common easing functions. This module is used by Animated.timing() to convey physically believable motion in animations.

You can find a visualization of some common easing functions at http://easings.net/

### #

Predefined animationsThe `Easing`

module provides several predefined animations through the following methods:

`back`

provides a basic animation where the object goes slightly back before moving forward`bounce`

provides a bouncing animation`ease`

provides a basic inertial animation`elastic`

provides a basic spring interaction

### #

Standard functionsThree standard easing functions are provided:

The `poly`

function can be used to implement quartic, quintic, and other higher power functions.

### #

Additional functionsAdditional mathematical functions are provided by the following methods:

`bezier`

provides a cubic bezier curve`circle`

provides a circular function`sin`

provides a sinusoidal function`exp`

provides an exponential function

The following helpers are used to modify other easing functions.

`in`

runs an easing function forwards`inOut`

makes any easing function symmetrical`out`

runs an easing function backwards

## #

Example# #

Reference## #

Methods`step0()`

#

A stepping function, returns 1 for any positive value of `n`

.

`step1()`

#

A stepping function, returns 1 if `n`

is greater than or equal to 1.

`linear()`

#

A linear function, `f(t) = t`

. Position correlates to elapsed time one to one.

`ease()`

#

A basic inertial interaction, similar to an object slowly accelerating to speed.

http://cubic-bezier.com/#.42,0,1,1

`quad()`

#

A quadratic function, `f(t) = t * t`

. Position equals the square of elapsed time.

http://easings.net/#easeInQuad

`cubic()`

#

A cubic function, `f(t) = t * t * t`

. Position equals the cube of elapsed time.

http://easings.net/#easeInCubic

`poly()`

#

A power function. Position is equal to the Nth power of elapsed time.

n = 4: http://easings.net/#easeInQuart n = 5: http://easings.net/#easeInQuint

`sin()`

#

A sinusoidal function.

http://easings.net/#easeInSine

`circle()`

#

A circular function.

http://easings.net/#easeInCirc

`exp()`

#

An exponential function.

http://easings.net/#easeInExpo

`elastic()`

#

A basic elastic interaction, similar to a spring oscillating back and forth.

Default bounciness is 1, which overshoots a little bit once. 0 bounciness doesn't overshoot at all, and bounciness of N > 1 will overshoot about N times.

`back()`

#

Use with `Animated.parallel()`

to create a basic effect where the object animates back slightly as the animation starts.

`bounce()`

#

Provides a basic bouncing effect.

http://easings.net/#easeInBounce

`bezier()`

#

Provides a cubic bezier curve, equivalent to CSS Transitions' `transition-timing-function`

.

A useful tool to visualize cubic bezier curves can be found at http://cubic-bezier.com/

`in()`

#

Runs an easing function forwards.

`out()`

#

Runs an easing function backwards.

`inOut()`

#

Makes any easing function symmetrical. The easing function will run forwards for half of the duration, then backwards for the rest of the duration.
