Hey man,

I've been struggling with trying to figure out how to trigger methods on GSAP functions using react hooks and effects.

Any chance you have experience with this?

When a user clicks a button a form slides into right, when they click the button again the form slides back out of sight (dependent on state).

I can do this with classes, but can't figure out how to do it in a functional component
