Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The commitStyles() method of the Web Animations API's Animation interface commits the end styling state of an animation to the element being animated, even after that animation has been removed. It will cause the end styling state to be written to the element being animated, in the form of properties inside a style attribute.

Examples

const divElem = document.querySelector('div');

document.body.addEventListener('mousemove', evt => {
  let anim = divElem.animate(
    { transform: `translate(${ evt.clientX}px, ${evt.clientY}px)` },
    { duration: 500, fill: 'forwards' }
  );

  anim.commitStyles();
});
