CSS Transitions, Transforms and Animation Tutorial

CSS Transitions, Transforms and Animation Tutorial
Introduction This website is designed to help you build modern sites that are able to make use of some of the newer, exciting parts of CSS. The site is currently focussed on CSS Transitions, Transforms and Animation, though I will be adding other topics as they become available on any major platform. Though of course your browser must support the technologies to use them, most things degrade nicely in older browser, meaning that you can use much of this today, even without a fallback. If you need to have the same appearance in older browsers (mainly IE6, 7 and 8), then all the animation bits can be easily covered by using jQuery's .animate(). 2D transforms can be emulated to a degree in older versions of IE, but 3D transforms can't. None of the actual animation uses javascript, though I am using jQuery to add and remove classes to add interactivity.

Introduction jScrollPane - cross browser styleable scrollbars with jQuery and CSS jScrollPane is a cross-browser jQuery plugin by Kelvin Luck which converts a browser's default scrollbars (on elements with a relevant overflow property) into an HTML structure which can be easily skinned with CSS. jScrollPane is designed to be flexible but very easy to use. After you have downloaded and included the relevant files in the head of your document all you need to to is call one javascript function to initialise the scrollpane.

CSS Animation Generator CSS animations were added at the start of CSS3 which allows you to transition from one CSS style to another. To use a CSS animation you will have to start styling the element and a number of keyframes to define the transition from start to end of the animation. Before CSS animation was available, the way you would make an element change styling would be to use JavaScript to change an element's styling properties in a certain order. The advantages of using CSS animation over JavaScript driven animations is that they run smoother than JavaScript, which commonly skipped keyframes. Browser rendering engines are built to work better with CSS animation. They are also easier to develop as all coding of the animation is done in CSS and you just select which properties to change at certain keyframes.

CSS3 Media Queries CSS2 allows you to specify stylesheet for specific media type such as screen or print. Now CSS3 makes it even more efficient by adding media queries. You can add expressions to media type to check for certain conditions and apply different stylesheets. For example, you can have one stylesheet for large displays and a different stylesheet specifically for mobile devices. It is quite powerful because it allows you to tailor to different resolutions and devices without changing the content. Interactive Photo Desk with jQuery and CSS3 In this little experiment we created an interactive photo desk that provides some “realistic” interaction possibilities for the user.

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.
