Springy - A force directed graph layout algorithm in JavaScript. Dot Navigation Styles Today we'd like to share some subtle effects and styles for simple dot navigation with you. These styles could, for example, be used for a page scroll navigation or a thumbnail preview, in a vertical or horizontal fashion. View demo Download source Small UI elements usually don’t get too much attention when it comes to creative effects. Note that some effects might not work as intended in some browsers (SVG transition, 3D transform-style). For the structure we’ll have an unordered list with links: <div class="dotstyle dotstyle-fillup"><ul><li class="current"><a href="#">Home</a></li><li><a href="#">About</a></li><li><a href="#">Products</a></li><li><a href="#">Portfolio</a></li><li><a href="#">Blog</a></li><li><a href="#">Contact</a></li></ul></div> For some examples, we also use an additional empty list element, i.e. in order to “move” the current item in the “dot move” style. We define some common styles: Hope you enjoy these styles and find them inspiring!

Creative Button Styles From our sponsor: Create spectacular WordPress sites with ease. Today we would like to give you some button inspiration. This button set consists of some simple, creative and subtle styles and effects to inspire you. The icons, which we add using the :before (and sometimes :after) pseudo-class, are from IcoMoon and we’ve created them with the IcoMoon app. Please note: this only works as intended in browsers that support the respective CSS properties. The markup of a button is really simple. <button class="btn btn-6 btn-6d">Button</button> The common styles for all the buttons are some resets defined in .btn and we use the specific numbered classes for the different sets of styles. An example for a specific button style is the following: Which will of course depend on what we define as a common style in .btn and .btn-6. This class structure is used for demo purposes. I hope you enjoy the styles and find them inspiring!

Customize checkboxes and radio buttons with iCheck (jQuery and Zepto) plugin Animated SVG Icons with Snap.svg Using SVGs on websites is becoming more and more easy with great libraries like Snap.svg. Today we want to explore what we can do with it and animate some SVG icons as a practical example. View demo Download source SVG has been one of the most underused technologies when it comes to web development. You’ve surely seen some great examples of animated icons using CSS transitions and animations like the Navicon Transformicons by Bennett Feely which were explained in this excellent collaborative tutorial by Sara Soueidan. Please note that we are working with a modern JavaScript library for manipulating our SVGs. The first thing we do is to create some SVG icons using an SVG editor like Inkscape. For each icon we want a special animation to happen. With the help of Modernizr we can define the fallback in our CSS: The PNG icons were generated with the fabulous iconizr tool. If you add the class “si-icon-reverse” to the span, the icon will be initially rendered with the reversed “shape”.

Animated Checkboxes and Radio Buttons with SVG By animating an SVG path with JavaScript, we can do many fancy things. Today we want to show you some effects for checkboxes and radio buttons. The idea is to hide the inputs, use pseudo-elements to create a more appealing style and then animate the SVG paths once an input is selected. View demo Download source Today we’d like to share some fancy “check” animations for checkboxes and radio buttons with you. Please note that this is just a proof-of-concept and not a complete solution. For the custom checkbox or radio button we use the ::before pseudo-element of the label and we hide the input by setting the opacity to 0. Initially, we also add the necessary SVG elements after the inputs with JavaScript. Here is an example of a form structure: We are using an unordered list with the inputs and labels. The core styles for making the input invisible and creating the box out of the pseudo-element is the following: We noticed a small glitch for the last example in Firefox (24.0) on Mac.

The illustrations used in the demos are by talented Isaac Montemayor. So, let’s get started! The Markup What we’ll do first, is to draw two shapes in a vector graphics editor like Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape. The “d” (path data) value is what you are looking for. For the markup we’ll have a section with the class “grid” which contains figures wrapped in anchors. The SVG will have the respective viewBox values for the graphic and a preserveAspectRatio of “none”. The CSS
