One of the easiest ways to add to your website some outstanding features is to find and apply a proper plugin.
For example, there is a ton of sites out there that leverage dynamic effects for giving each section a pleasant entrance. To obtain the same result, you can opt for an AOS plugin that stands for “Animation On Scrolling.” It has a bunch of tiny effects in its arsenal. Simply add necessary classes to the desired “div” and your interface will get a subtle touch of dynamics and user experience a lovely cutting-edge feel. If you need a parallax that is still popular these days, then there is a great solution called Parallax.js or Jump.js. The same goes to incorporating little enhancements like enjoyable pop-up modal windows, rich tooltips or full-screen videos: there are time-tested methods to adopt. Even such things as duotone effect, particles animation, or responsive navigation can be worked into your project just with several simple manipulations. You do not even need to get to the bottom of the technique – just enjoy its benefits; plugin with its carefully encapsulated functionality will do all the heavy lifting. In one word, there is a solution to any problem all you have to do is to search a little. Though, of course, in some cases, these searches may be pretty exhaustive.
To save you from such unfortunate outcomes, each year we assemble a list of 100 useful plugins from different areas that give you a freedom of maneuver and let you introduce the desired improvements to the interface. This year is no exception, and we have prepared a collection of free plugins that may assist you in adding dynamic effects, creating animations, applying CSS-based filters to images, and much more.
