  • Cli basics

    This series, by Kezz Bracey, isn’t about “how to run obscure commands for tasks you never do.” Nor is it a “complicated dev process made easy for designers” type of a deal. This is a series specifically for web designers, showing you how to utilize command line tools that are incredibly useful specifically for web design projects.

    Once you start bringing the command line into your design processes it’ll open up a whole new world of options, save huge swathes of your precious time, and, we promise, you’ll never look back.

    TimelineMax is part of the GreenSock Animation Platform and helps you animate for the web. Using TimelineMax you can control animation sequences of “anything JavaScript can touch” (such as CSS properties and SVG) though you don’t need to be a JavaScript God to use it! 

    This series will take you from the very basics, introducing the TimelineMax library and its basic syntax, through to mechanics, tweens, bezier curves and plenty more. Along the way we’ll use practical demos to help you get stuck in.
