Create a Cool Website with Fancy Scrolling Effects

Create a Cool Website with Fancy Scrolling Effects
I’m sure we’re all familiar with the popular parallax effect in web design. It has become a great tool to create a fun browsing experience that responds to the user’s controls as they scroll up and down the page. In this tutorial we’ll use a couple of readily available jQuery plugins to quickly put together a cool little single page website of our own, complete with fancy scrolling effects. This tutorial will be a walkthrough of my design process for a simple portal site that presents all of my websites and social profiles. Each website has its own individual section in a series of ‘slides’ laid out vertically. View the final fancy scrolling website Before jumping into any code flesh out your design in Photoshop and develop each individual slide. Begin exporting all the required imagery ready for creating the design in HTML and CSS. In some sections of my design I use a large background image. <! Create a simple HTML document and add an unordered list to the body. Related:  Front-endoutils web

Parallax Tutorial using CSS and jQuery How to implement parallax effects on scroll using CSS & jQuery Ever wondered how to achieve parallax effects on scroll? I'll show you how simple it can be, using CSS & a bit of jQuery. Performance Aims Minimise DOM interactions on scroll events.Ideally we should only be interacting with the parallax elements at the breakpoints (start & stop positions), so we can try to make use of CSS fixed positioning to accomplish the desired parallax effect. Mobile Problems/Considerations Previously I've referred to scroll events. Binding scroll and touchmove events As touchmove events stop when your finger leaves the screen, but the browser will continue to scroll for around a second as part of the 'slowing down' easing effect. A solution for this problem (well, more of a workaround), is to design your parallax effects with this in mind. Update 2: Check out my demo showing the scroll event problems on mobile! Demo time: Let's make the red brick fall down the page as we scroll! relative scroll top: 1

ScrollReveal.js, une librairie JS pour déclencher des animations au scroll ScrollReveal.js est une librairie JavaScript qui permet de déclencher l’apparition d’un élément HTML lorsqu’il « entre dans le viewport », autrement dit lorsque celui-ci devient visible à l’écran (chargement et scroll), notamment à l’aide d’une configuration utilisant un attribut data-* HTML5. « Animations… animations everywhere ! » Si vous cherchez des effets animés faciles à mettre en place pour enrichir votre site web, scrollReveal.js est fait pour vous ! Cette librairie JS propose des animations de type « fade » lorsqu’un élément apparait à l’écran. Pour chaque élément HTML que l’on veut animer, il faut configurer un attribut data-scrollReveal qui prend pour valeur plusieurs mots-clés qui vont définir le mouvement souhaité. ScrollReveal.js met alors en place les transitions et transformations CSS correspondantes, et ce peu importe l’élément choisi ; cela fonctionne aussi bien avec une image qu’avec une div contenant plusieurs balises.

CSS Guidelines – High-level advice and guidelines for writing sane, manageable, scalable CSS A Simple Parallax Scrolling Technique Parallax scrolling is an interesting technique, where, as you scroll, the background images translate slower than the content in the foreground, creating the illusion of 3D depth. As I planned to re-design my personal website, my first goal was to write the shortest and simplest code to achieve maximum awesomeness! I'll show you how I did it. In this tutorial, I'll teach you the simplest parallax scrolling technique you've ever came across, so let's dig in! This technique revolves around controlling the speed of background image. So let's begin with the HTML markup, creating two sections along with the required attributes: "data-type" and "data-speed". I am using the <section> tag with the attributes data-type & data-speed, which were introduced in HTML5. According to the specification for Custom Data Attributes, any attribute that starts with data- will be treated as a storage area for private data. I know what you're thinking: you're worried about IE. Now it should look like this...

Parallax.js | Simple Parallax Scrolling Effect with jQuery Installation Download and include parallax.min.js in your document after including jQuery. Useage Via data attributes To easily add a parallax effect behind an element, add data-parallax="scroll" to the element you want to use, and specify an image with data-image-src="/path/to/image.jpg". Via JavaScript To call the parallax plugin manually, simply select your target element with jQuery and do the following: Under The Hood What parallax.js will do is create a fixed-position element for each parallax image at the start of the document’s body.

A Beginner’s Guide to Wireframing Wireframing is an important step in any screen design process. It primarily allows you to define the information hierarchy of your design, making it easier for you to plan the layout according to how you want your user to process the information. If you've yet to use wireframing, it's time to get your feet wet. Before we get started though, a quick question: are you needing a pro website solution? If so, we have a number of HTML Templates and PSD Templates that may fit your needs. It's like an architectural blueprint; you need to see it in two-dimensional black and white diagrams before you understand how to build the actual house. At a deeper level, a wireframe is also very useful in determining how the user interacts with the interface. Wireframing is important because it allows the designer to plan the layout and interaction of an interface without being distracted by colors, typeface choices or even copy. However, I do use other tools and it depends on the project scenario.
