Animation in CSS3 In this article you'll learn what you need to know to get started with CSS3 animations. "Animating" with CSS used to be limited to hovering effects. With :hover and :focus pseudo classes we've been able to change color, size, background-color, position, and many other CSS properties based on user action. The :hover trick provides only two states - hovered and non-hovered - with only two keyframes: start and end, and no tweening between these states, creating a harsh and sudden transition. This isn't really animation. CSS3 transitions solved the tweening issue, enabling transitioning from non-hovered to hovered style (and back) over a period of time.
Removing User Interface Complexity, or Why React is Awesome I've been studying frameworks and libraries like Ember, Angular, and React the past several months, and given Web Components a lot of thought. These all solve similar problems to varying degrees, and are in conflict in some ways and in harmony in others. I'm mostly concerned with the core problems of data binding and componentizing UIs. After much research and usage of the technologies mentioned above, I found React to provide the best solution. I ask that you set aside your framework prejudices and read this post with an open mind. This post is not to evangelize React specifically, but to explain why its technique is profound. Heading Set Styling with CSS We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too. This is a simple title of level 2

Fullscreen Layout with Page Transitions A simple responsive layout with some fancy page transitions. The idea is to show four items initially and expand them. Some additional page transitions are added for inner items. View demo Download source Vertical align anything with just 3 lines of CSS With just 3 lines of CSS (excluding vendor prefixes) we can with the help of transform: translateY vertically center whatever we want, even if we don’t know its height. The CSS property transform is usally used for rotating and scaling elements, but with its translateY function we can now vertically align elements. Usually this must be done with absolute positioning or setting line-heights, but these require you to either know the height of the element or only works on single-line text etc. So, to vertically align anything we write: That’s all you need.
Nested Selections D3’s selections can be hierarchical, much like the elements and data they join. Consider a table: <table><thead><tr><td> A</td><td> B</td><td> C</td><td> D</td></tr></thead><tbody><tr><td> 0</td><td> 1</td><td> 2</td><td> 3</td></tr><tr><td> 4</td><td> 5</td><td> 6</td><td> 7</td></tr><tr><td> 8</td><td> 9</td><td> 10</td><td> 11</td></tr><tr><td> 12</td><td> 13</td><td> 14</td><td> 15</td></tr></tbody></table> How would you select only the body cells? The selector "td" would match the td elements in the head as well as the body. To match only those elements A within some other elements B, use the descendant combinator, "B A".
A Collection of Page Transitions A showcase collection of various page transition effects using CSS animations. View demo Download source Today we’d like to share a collection of creative page transitions with you. We’ve put together a couple of animations that could be applied to “pages” for creating interesting navigation effects when revealing a new page. While some effects are very simplistic, i.e. a simple slide movement, others make use of perspective and 3d transforms to create some depth and dynamics.
Using Custom Data Attributes and Pseudo-Elements A tutorial on how to (ab)use custom data attributes and pseudo-elements for creating image captions. In today’s tutorial I want to show you some simple CSS tricks using data attributes and pseudo-elements. The aim is to create an image caption using only an anchor and an image as markup. We’ll be exploring how to create pseudo-elements from some data attribute values and use them in a hover effect or simply show them next to the image.
Using CSS Transitions on Auto Dimensions By Brandon Smith On We've all been there. You've got an element you want to be able to collapse and expand smoothly using CSS transitions, but its expanded size needs to be content-dependent. You've set transition: height 0.2s ease-out. You've created a collapsed CSS class that applies height: 0.
