A lot of people (I mean not regular people, but professional front-end developers) think that animations based on particles are difficult to implement. It’s not true. Every developer with basic skills in JS+canvas can create amazing effects very easily. I wrote an article about these animations.
Previously I created a nice animation for the “404” page. The main idea of the animation was successful and I used it several times with small changes. One of these variants has been published on CodePen and I’d like to share it here too. I fixed the bug with opacity in Safari (it’s like the old IE requires personal approach) and both animations work in all modern browsers now. As always they are free to use.
A lot of interesting infinite patterns in CSS animations can be obtained from the one idea. This pen is an example of it. The animation consists of two steps with simple transforms. There are no rare properties or magic behavior in the example.
SVG paths have an option called stroke-dashoffset and We can animate it. When Chris Coyier posted an article about it, someone said “as always, using properties for effects they were never intended for”. He is absolutely right, but…
Some of my CSS loaders were showcased at nisnom.com. It’s really nice. Here are three of them, which I don’t share on my website previously. They are simple, but look very attractive. The first one uses gooey SVG filter on seven moving dots, the second is the simple cube with animated backgrounds and the last animation consists of circles which change their sizes like waves.
When I was a teenager I studied at the art school. Later I’ve changed my interests to the math and programming, but the skills have stayed with me. Sometimes I take a brush or a pencil and draw. I don’t think that my skills are amazing, but I’d like to share some of my paintings here and on my Behance profile.
