Document.getAnimations()

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The getAnimations() method of the Document interface returns an array of all Animation objects currently in effect whose target elements are descendants of the document. This array includes CSS Animations, CSS Transitions, and Web Animations.

Syntax

var allAnimations = Document.getAnimations();

Parameters

None.

Return value

An Array of Animation objects, each representing one animation currently associated with elements which are descendants of the Document on which it's called.

Examples

The following code snippet will slow down all animations on a page by halving their Animation.playbackRate.

document.getAnimations().forEach(
  function (animation) {
    animation.playbackRate *= .5;
  }
);
