CodePen is fast becoming the go-to place to show off what we can do with our web creations. Here’s a list of some of the great stuff people have been creating with CSS animations recently!
Note: for even more inspiration, take a look at my latest post:
2. CSS Submarine
Gorgeous use of the circular port-hole shaped container gives this CSS-animated submarine a lot of charm.
3. ASCII AT-AT
Star Wars inspired AT-AT personnel carrier, drawn using text with the colours cycled in CSS. A funky effect.
4. SVG/CSS Loader
This loader uses the changing colours to give the impression of rotating.
5. 3D CSS Tardis
CSS can be used to create some amazing 3D effects. Here’s a 3D tardis:
6. Dozing Bird
Simple art style and just the right amount of animation give this sleepy bird the illusion of life.
7. Pure CSS border animation
Simple yet very effective use of CSS borders to create a loading-style animation.
8. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Star Wars: The Force Awakens in CSS by Donovan Hutchinson (@donovanh).
9. 3D Synth
Try out the keys and rotating this 3D synth created using CSS. Amazing work:
10. Cascading Solar System
A model of our solar system, complete with scaled rotation speed, moons and details on each of the larger planets. The sun is even a live capture of the real thing!
11. 3D Solar System
Another solar system, but this time in 3D. Beautiful use of shading.
12. Flat Design Camera
Press the shutter on this flat camera to see it create a photo using CSS animation.
13. Day and Night Transition
Press the button to see day transform to night.
14. Animated Sprite with CSS
A demonstration of how a sequence of images (sprite) can be used to create stop-motion animation, complete with forward and reverse motion.
