SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphic. It can be used to make graphics and animations like in HTML canvas.

The <animate> SVG element is used to animate an attribute or property of an element over time. It’s normally inserted inside the element which we want to animate.

Syntax:

<animate attributeName="" values="" dur="" repeatCount="" />

Attributes:

  • Animation Attributes: Attributes used to give animation effects, exp timing attributes, event attributes, and value attributes, etc.
  • Global Attributes: some global attributes used like core attributes and styling attributes, etc.
