Greetings, does anybody know how to add CSS animation, e.g. a ripple effect, to point symbol. I found a post back in 2014 which has given great tips. However, I'm wondering if there's a simpler approach after 8 years,  something similar like mapbox provides Add an animated icon to the map | Mapbox GL JS | Mapbox

Hi @JackFanZhang - you can easily add animations to point symbols with animated GIFs and PNGs in PictureMarkerSymbol or CIMSymbol with a CIMPictureMarker symbol layer. 

You can also create a custom layer with animations, as shown in this sample: https://developers.arcgis.com/javascript/latest/sample-code/custom-gl-visuals/

Hope this helps!
