Super easy magic-move transitions for Vue apps

Heads up!

The fate of this repo is uncertain. I recommend using my new library, vue-flip-toolkit for all of your magic-move transition needs.


Super easy magic-move transitions for Vue apps, powered by Ramjet

Project Install

# npm
npm install vue-overdrive
# yarn
yarn add vue-overdrive


Currently, vue-overdrive isn’t able to morph between shapes with percentage-based border-radius values. You’ll need to use a pixel-based value, or you’ll get a nasty TypeError. The issue is being tracked here:

What is it?

A Vue.js port of the amazing React Overdrive, using Ramjet under the hood.

How does it work?

Just like with React Overdrive, wrap any two elements in a component. Add the same id to create a transition between the elements.

Import and install

import Overdrive from 'vue-overdrive'


import { VOverdrive } from 'vue-overdrive'

// Register the component locally
components: {
  'overdrive': VOverdrive

Set up (at least) two different routes with Vue Router

Inside your routes file –

  path: '/circle',
  name: 'Circle',
  component: Circle
  path: '/rectangle',
  name: 'Rectangle',
  component: Rectangle 

Scaffold your components

In Circle.vue:

  <overdrive id="element" :easing="easing" :duration="350">
    <div class="circle"></div>

import * as easing from 'eases/quart-in-out' // Bring 'yr own easing functions!
export default {
  name: 'el-circle',
  data () {
    return {

<style scoped>
  .circle {
    width: 100px;
    height: 100px;
    border-radius: 50%;
    background: blue;
    float: left;

And in Rectangle.vue

  <overdrive id="element">
    <div class="rectangle"></div>

Usage with v-if

If you’re not using Vue Router (and instead using Vue’s built-in v-if directive), be sure to specify a unique key prop on each instance of <overdrive>

<overdrive key="a" id="window" :duration="450" v-if="!windowOpen">
  <!-- some element -->
<overdrive key="b" id="window" :duration="450" v-if="windowOpen">
  <!-- some element -->

Customize it (API)

Prop Description Default Value
id Required. A unique string or number to identify the component.
tag Wrapping element type div
duration Animation duration (in milliseconds) 250
easing Easing Function (must pass a function) ramjet.linear
Event Description
@animation-end Fires once the ramjet animation has completed
