I can not find any simple way to create element transition effects in ClojureScript with reagent.

This does not exactly answer your question, but transitions are very easy to do in CSS. (I don't use animations much, so can't comment.)

Here's a piece of CSS from a recent project that does a transition when the user hovers the mouse over an element, a disclosure chevron, in an outliner control. It makes the element a bit larger and darker, a subtle, but noticeable change.

The base element:

.tree-control--chevron-div {
font-size: 70%;
color: var(--chevron-color);

opacity: 0.9;
transition: opacity 0.3s, font-size 0.3s, color 0.3s ease-in-out;

The CSS for the hover:

   .tree-control--chevron-div:hover {
    font-size: 75%;
    opacity: 1;
    color: black;

The base class for the element specifies how the transition should happen. The CSS for the pseudo-class specifies what it should transition too.

The problem with doing this in Reagent, as far as I know, is that there is no way to specify the behavior of pseudo-elements.

If you don't mind adding another dependency, garden is a library for adding CSS to Clojure apps. It has a syntax very similar to Hiccup. There is also stylefy for ClojureScript. Both have slightly extended Hiccup-like syntax to handle pseudo-elements like hover.

If you really want an animation, I can't help. Sorry for wasting your time.

If you use shadow-cljs with reagent,
You can use framer-motion (react-pose successor)
It is very powerful and very simple to use !

there is an apress book about reagent ( ...i only read the description... so... no idea if it could help... )
