In both personal and professional context, I’m often missing a solution to create animations to illustrate my explanations.

I’m looking for anything to create education animations in 2D. I don’t care about the format, it could be a library to a known language, a DSL, some YAML or whatever. The point is to export theses animations into format like SVGs or even GIFs and insert them into web pages for documentation/explanation purpose.

As some kind of example, Lydia Hallie made wonderful animations to explain the Javascript engine ( I know she’s using Apple’s Keynote.) and I’m looking for a solution able to create that kind of animation.

I hope you have ideas, guidance, anything :)
