7 JavaScript Libraries You Don't Want to Miss in 2019

7 JavaScript Libraries You Don't Want to Miss in 2019

Now that we’ve hit 2019 in stride, let’s take a look at some of the most interesting, trending JavaScript libraries for the new year. The JavaScript libraries we’ll be looking at cover a pretty wide range of functionalities and uses. Here are 7 you don’t want to miss!




Howler.js is a great library for adding sound effects to a website. You’ll be amazed by just how little code you need to add sounds. Plus you’ll get controls like volume, fading, playback speed and lots more. Howler.js works great on mobile devices as well, so no worries there. One of the best audio libraries for the modern web, with no outside dependencies—just pure JavaScript!




Typed.js is another excellent JavaScript library with a very specific purpose. It’s designed especially for creating typing animations. Just throw in any string you want, set the typing speed and that’s pretty much it. There are lots of options like pausing, backspacing speed, cursor style, and others.


Also, you can backspace what it's typed, and begin a new sentence for however many strings you've set. So you’re really free to communicate as much as you want!



Cleave.js has a simple purpose: to help you format input text content automatically. With just a few simple lines of code, you can format nearly anything. We’re talking about, credit card numbers, dates & times, phone numbers, or even create your own custom formats. The formatting possibilities are endless!




SweetAlert2 is a dependency-free, responsive, and customizable popup library that every developer can take advantage of. Their popups automatically center themselves on the page and look great whether on a desktop, mobile, or tablet. It integrates with Angular and React and it’s highly customizable!



ScrollMagic is a fun one! It’s one of the most popular JavaScript scrolling libraries for a reason. It takes an object-oriented approach and uses a controller for each scroll container.


Pretty much any scrolling behavior you can think of it can do. It’s got all the basics like detecting the scrolling position or parallax effects, but also can handle advanced JavaScript scrolling like multi-directional scrolling and element scaling.


Their demo page is a lot of fun--check it out!




This one’s a bit different. Popmotion actually has 5 different JavaScript libraries that they offer.


  • Pose: A truly simple animation library for React, React Native, and Vue
  • Popmotion Pure: A functional, flexible JavaScript animation library
  • Popcorn: Utility functions to help animation and UI developers manipulate values over time and space.
  • Stylefire: CSS and SVG styler and optimizer for animation.
  • Framesync: A Unity-inspired render loop for browsers




Html2canvas is our last library for today. It’s a script allows you to take "screenshots" of a webpage (or parts of it) directly on the users’ browser. What’s cool here, and why screenshot is in quotes, is that it’s actually a DOM-based composite based on the information available on the page as opposed to an image, or regular screenshot.


The script renders the current page as a canvas image, by reading the DOM and the different styles applied to the elements.


Wrapping Up

Hope you like the list and will find these libraries useful for all of your 2019 JavaScript projects. We’ve got tons more JavaScript libraries that you can browse in the JavaScript category of our SDK directory. Be sure to check it out!
