Number Animation in React

If you want to add some animation to your numbers in a React application, there are different libraries and methods that can be used. Here are some ways to accomplish it:

Using React CountUp Library

The React CountUp library allows you to easily animate a number by just passing some properties to its component. Here is an example:

import CountUp from 'react-countup';

function NumberAnimation() {
  return (
      <CountUp start={0} end={100} duration={2.5} />

In this example, we import the CountUp component and use it inside a functional component. We pass the initial value (start), final value (end) and duration of the animation (duration) as properties of the component. The animation starts from 0 and ends at 100, taking 2.5 seconds to complete.

Using React Spring Library

The React Spring library provides a wide range of animations, including animating numbers. Here is an example:

import { useSpring, animated } from 'react-spring';

function NumberAnimation() {
  const props = useSpring({ 
    from: { number: 0 },
    to: { number: 100 },
    delay: 1000,
    duration: 2000

  return (

In this example, we use the useSpring hook to define the animation properties. We set the initial value of the number to 0 and the final value to 100, with a delay of 1 second and a duration of 2 seconds. We then use the animated component from React Spring to wrap the number and interpolate it with the animation properties.

Using CSS Animations

You can also use CSS animations to animate numbers in React. Here is an example:

import { useState, useEffect } from 'react';
import './NumberAnimation.css';

function NumberAnimation() {
  const [number, setNumber] = useState(0);

  useEffect(() => {
    const intervalId = setInterval(() => {
      setNumber(n => n + 1);
    }, 50);

    return () => clearInterval(intervalId);
  }, []);

  return (
    <div className="number">{number}</div>

In this example, we define a state variable number and use the useEffect hook to update it every 50 milliseconds. We also create a CSS class called .number that defines the animation properties:

.number {
  font-size: 50px;
  animation: count-up 1s linear forwards;

@keyframes count-up {
  from {
    content: '0';
  to {
    content: attr(data-count);

The CSS animation uses the content property to display the numbers. It starts from 0 and increases to the current value of number. The animation lasts for 1 second and has a linear timing function. The forwards keyword makes the animation hold the final state after it finishes.


These are some ways to animate numbers in a React application. You can choose the method that best suits your needs and preferences. Using a library like React CountUp or React Spring can save you time and effort, while using CSS animations gives you more control over the animation properties.
