Motionia.js - animating the door

Animating backgrounds

Animating lists

Getting started

Just add a script path of motionia via JSDELIVR into the head of your project

<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/abhiprojectz/motionia/dist/motionia.js" defer></script>

Use motionia in inline script as:


=> motionia("target", "anim");

Target can be any html element.

Elements can be a

id

,

class

or

body,p etc

html parametric element.

anim refers to animation name!

Features

There is a lot of potential in motionia just keep exploring it.

Animations lists

There are 100+ builtin animations + capability to create a lot more..

Appear In

Add

In

to make a appering anim.

fadeIn

rollIn

slideIn

slitIn

bounceIn

swirlIn

rotateIn

presentIn

presIn

parosIn

flickerIn

tiltIn

swingIn

and a lot more!

Disapper Out

add

Out

to disappear a element

fadeOut

slideOut

rollOut

slitOut

shadowIn
popIn
puffIn
blutIn
expandIn
explodeOut

etc

Wanna customize ?

You can customize above anim easily without writing a long code all you need is just A LINE!!

Make a element slide right by some amount

Use motionia("div", "slideX" , "100px");

That's all!


motionia("target", "slideY" , "100px");

Customize intensity of a anim!

Some anim can be minimized or maximized in order to meet our requirements as sometimes we need to gain more ATTENTION of a user!

Just add Min or Max at the end of a anim!

Create a vibrate anim for a element like a button

use:

motionia("#btn","vibrateMax")
motionia("#btn","vibrateMin")

Following anims support min pr max feature.

blink
vibrate
bounce
shake
jelly
wobble
ripple

Mixing 2 anims together!

Yeah, with motionia you can mix one anim to the other. its very simple just mix anims name which is one & first of a kind ,with each other and hola!

Why to mix? Inorder to get a cool amazing animation no need to wrtie a page long CSS KEYFRAMES only 1,2 words name is ENOUGH!

To mix anim suppose make a element rotate and then scale!

motionia("target", "rotateScaleIn")

This will first make the object rotate and then scale it.

Mixing is amazing!! & its CONVERSE is also possible, now Make a object first scale and then rotate!

motionia("target", "scaleRotateIn")

In this way you can multipy the number of above all anims by just Double

Try out: flipScaleIn ,flipScaleOut , slideRotate etc combinations!

Pre built awesome 3D anims.

Suppose you wanna animate a object that similates anim of a door just like a door opens? Imagine it You can animate element by just its Name!

Animate a element as a door opens in UP , DOWN , LEFT , RIGHT

Just add the directions parameters at the end of the anim name!

use:

motionia("#target", "doorUp")
motionia("#target", "doorDown")
motionia("#target", "doorLeft")
motionia("#target", "doorRight")


Animate background of any element!

visit this codepen demo , in that gradients background is taken.

Animating backgrounds

Animate background of any element by just using some basic parameters as direction parameters.

That is just add direction to Move the background in that direction often usefull in making Landscape anims easily by just ONE LINE OF CODE!!

use:

motionia("#target", "bgDown")
motionia("#target", "bgUp")
motionia("#target", "bgLeft")
motionia("#target", "bgRight")

Animating document background!

Wanna animate background , you can use all the above BASE anims and also can make their combos + too add appearing in or out depends upon you.

Use:

motionia("body", "popZ")

or 

motionia("body", "scaleZ");

Wait....whats Z at the end this will animate body's transformation in z axis and can change upon your body's dimension automatically!

Remember Z parameter only works in anims where transformation in z axis works , that is have its actual meaning as for those anims which it doesn't work then don't worry just change your base anim's name!

Animate color of a element quickly

You can pass your favourite colors upto 3 to motionia's color base anim.

use:

motionia("#target", "color", "red", "#000", "teal")

Color will work in any typo that is hsl, hex , rgba , dex or predefined name etc.

Scale or Slide a element in Z axis

Yeah, with motionia you can even animate elements in 3D
and that's too just by a Line.

Animate a element such that its size becomes big with your desired amount (Also there is a prebuilt anim for it scaleIn) by 2x.

use:

motionia("#target", "scaleZ", "2")

This will animate element by double its size!

Animating shadow of a element

This is very usefull & helpfull in creating dynamic view for links , that will surely increase the viewership into your project.

** This is separately available for both Text or any other html element such as Svg or a image**

To animate shadow of a hyper link

use:

motionia("#text", "shadowIn")

To animate shadow of a div or a button or anything except text.

use:

motionia("#target", "popZ")

Implementing Blur effects.

What if you can just make a blur effect easily? Usefull to make a loading scene

Directly use blurIn or blurOut

Depending on element motionia selects the anim like blur works even on text but is not made to animate text so there is an alternative use focusIn or focusInExpand

As i told above you may generate different anim by just mixing their names!

Its depend on your creativity.

use:

motionia("#target" , "focusIn")

Animate a rotating effects that fits your need.

There is a prebuilt anim for rotate motion that is rotateIn or rotateOut also you may built more by mixing that is scaleRotateIn etc but to make it adjustable just customize it

Suppose you need turn a icon by 90 degrees

You may also use it for fliping

use:

motionia("#icon", "rotate", "90deg")

Just specify the angle that 90deg, 100deg, etc.

Adding blur effects to anim itself!

The above anim is created by mixing bounceMin + Blur

Upto now we can add a blur effect to our elements using focusIn etc but what about adding this to Anims itself!

Just add Blur at the anims name.

use:

motionia("#target", "scaleInBlur")

or 

motionia("#target", "rollInBlur")

Up, Down , left & right parameters example

Selecting above anims correctly for your need is a Art just master it & add customization accordingly.

Swinging a button with a id #btn

motiona("#btn","swingUp")
motionia("#btn","swingRight")


// Animate a element to slide up by 10px

motionia("#div","slideY","10px") 

// px can be % em vh vw etc.

Don't forget to give motionia a STAR & a share thanks.

Thanks @Bayu, keep experimenting with motionia.js & don't forget to share it with others too.

 

Hmm, looks interesting, but let me point something out, why do you use this awkward technique to insert jQuery:

var y = document.createElement("script");
y.src= "cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jqu...";
document.head.prepend(y);

instead of mentioning the dependency in the docs and including it the proper way?
And why is there only minified JS source code on Github?

 

jQuery based... this makes it kind of outdated and even bigger in size.
I cannot find any real docs for this lib, and the demo page looks really bad.
I think there's still a lot of work ahead of the developer of this lib.

 

Looks pretty interesting. For anyone interested in web animation, Lottie is a pretty neat library too - though it requires you to create the animations first in Adobe After Effects: airbnb.io/lottie/

 

this is very cool 🤓 gonna implement immediately

 

Thanks for your feedback. Don't forget to share it with others. 😊

 

seriously this is interesting for having fun with a simple animation web.

 
 

Very cool looking!! 😎
