CSS3 Transitions,. Transformations, and. Animations. In the last two chapters we looked at some of the new features and functionality that. CSS3 provides. CSS Animations CSS Positioning Smoothing the Animation The @ keyframes Rule animation-* Properties animation-name Property With the Advanced CSS Animator you can animate virtually any CSS Property! Borders, colors, font sizes, position, opacity, apply CSS Transformations like.
See also The box-shadow CSS property adds shadow effects around an element's frame. You can set multiple effects separated by commas. A box shadow is described by X and Y offsets relative to the element, blur and spread radii, and color. The source for this interactive example is stored in a GitHub repository. The box-shadow property enables you to cast a drop shadow from the frame of almost any element.
Many sites use custom web fonts, so standard OS fonts are considerably less common than they were! Avoid import The import at-rule allows any CSS file to be included within another. Concatenate and Minify Most build tools allow you to combine all partials into one large CSS file that has unnecessary whitespace, comments and characters removed.
In some cases, separate files may be beneficial if you have smaller, regularly-changing CSS assets. However, most sites are likely to benefit from sending a single file that is immediately cached by the browser. Minification may not bring considerable benefits when you have GZIP enabled. Finally, you could consider a build process that orders properties consistently within declarations.
GZIP can maximize compression when commonly used strings are used throughout a file. The technique is a hack. Even then, floats will break at smaller screen sizes unless media queries are added.
The modern alternatives: CSS Flexbox for one-dimensional layouts which can wrap to the next row according to the widths of each block. Flexbox is ideal for menus, image galleries, cards, etc.
CSS Grid for two-dimensional layouts with explicit rows and columns. Grid is ideal for page layouts. Both options are simpler to develop, use less code, can adapt to any screen size, and render faster than floats because the browser can natively determine the optimum layout. The smaller your stylesheet, the quicker it will download and parse.
This is especially noticeable in less powerful devices, such as phones. This turns the element into an image during the transition, stopping any style recalculations which increases performance. Hardware acceleration can cause subtle font issues, such as a font looking like a different weight.
However different browsers use different hardware acceleration, this can cause cross-browser issues. You can change the transform-origin and even animate it with css3! In the example below, we create one animation using rotations on different axes instead of using four separate animations.
The bad side of this hack is that you can not use animation-mode: Meaning that we need to re-position the element to an equivalent of its state before applying the change in transformation-origin. Pseudo elements can be made to add more content to the appearance of a single element.
They can have different animations from their parent, their own box-shadows, and are very much the same to being child elements of without the HTML markup. In the example, all of the large circles around the middle flashing circle, as well as two of the smaller circles on the rim opposite from each other are box-shadows on the main element.
WCAG 1. The image below may help make sense of CSS Specificity. The most specific selector takes precedence.
If specificity is equal, the last declaration in the source order takes precendence. If cascade, or source order, were the only concern, the paragraph would be yellow. However, different selectors have different weights. An ID takes precendence over a class selector takes precendence over a type selector.
So, the paragraph would be red.
With CSS3 Selectors, order is even more important, as is understanding specificity: p.
