Creating UI Components in SVG


I’m thoroughly convinced that SVG unlocks a whole entire world of building interfaces on the web. It might seem daunting to learn SVG at first, but you have a spec that was designed to create shapes and yet, still has elements, like text, links, and aria labels available to you. You can accomplish...

How to Create a Timeline Task List Component Using SVG


I’m thoroughly convinced that SVG unlocks a whole entire world of building interfaces on the web. It might seem daunting to learn SVG at first, but you have a spec that was designed to create shapes and yet, still has elements, like text, links, and aria labels available to you. You can accomplish...

Graphery SVG


I’ve compared SVG and Canvas before. If you’re trying to decide between them, read that. I’d say the #1 difference between them is vector (SVG) versus raster (Canvas). But the #2 difference is how you work with them. SVG is declarative, as in, literal elements that express what they are through...

SVGBOX


I’ve been saying for years that a pretty good icon system is just dropping in icons with inline <svg> where you need them. This is simple to do, offers full design control, has (generally) good performance, and means you aren’t smurfing around with caching and browser support...

Libraries for SVG Drawing Animations


In 2013, Jake Archibald introduced this cool trick of animating an SVG path to look like it’s drawing itself. It’s 2020 now, and the trick is still popular. I’ve seen it on a lot of websites I’ve visited recently. I, too, feature an animated SVG loader on my website using one of the libraries I’ll...

Gray Burst


I made this neat little gray burst thing. It’s nothing particularly special, especially compared to the amazing creativity on CodePen, but I figured I could document some of the things happening in it for learning reasons. CodePen Embed Fallback It’s SVG SVG has <line x1 y1...

Some New Icon Sets


I’ve bookmarked some icon sets lately, partly because I can never find a nice set when I need to. I figured I’d even go the extra mile here and blog them so I can definitely find them later. Aside from being nice, cohesive, and practical sets of icons, I find it interesting that...

ztext.js


Super cool project from Bennett Feely! It makes any web type into 3D lettering with a mouseover effect that moves the 3D objects in space. It’s reminiscent of Zdog, but for type. It works its magic by stacking a bunch of copies of the glyphs on top of each other that are offset by some...

Lessons Learned from Sixty Days of Re-Animating Zombies with Hand-Coded CSS


I’ll be linking to individual Pens as I discuss the lessons I learned, but if you’d like to get a sense of the entire project, check out 60 days of Animation on Undead Institute. I started this project to end on August 1st, 2020, coinciding with the publication of a book I wrote featuring...

How to Get Handwriting Animation With Irregular SVG Strokes


I wanted to do a handwriting animation for calligraphy fonts — the kind where the words animate like they are being written by an invisible pen. Because calligraphy fonts have uneven stroke widths (they actually aren’t even strokes in terms of SVG), it was near impossible to do this sort of thing...

Stroke Text CSS: The Definitive Guide


Whenever I think of stroked text on the web I think: nope. There is -webkit-text-stroke in CSS for it, but it places that stroke in the middle of the vector outline of the characters, absolutely ensuring that the character doesn’t look right. Just look at this in Chrome or Safari. Gross....

The Making of: Netlify’s Million Devs SVG Animation Site


The following article captures the process of building the Million Developers microsite for Netlify. This project was built by a few folks and we’ve captured some parts of the process of building it here- focusing mainly on the animation aspects, in case any are helpful to others building...

SVG Title vs. HTML Title Attribute


You know the title attribute? I can do this: <div title="The Title"I'm a div with a `title` </div And now if I’m on a device with a mouse pointer and hover the cursor over that element, I get… Which, uh, I guess is something. I sometimes use it for things like putting...

A Font-Like SVG Icon System for Vue


Managing a custom collection of icons in a Vue app can be challenging at times. An icon font is easy to use, but for customization, you have to rely on third-party font generators, and merge conflicts can be painful to resolve since fonts are binary files. Using SVG files instead can eliminate...

Making lil’ me


Cassie Evans made a lovely illustration of herself and then used Greensock to add a flourish of animations to polish it off. Cassie wrote a series of posts about how she did it: In this post we’ll cover how to get values from the mouse movement and plug them into an animation. This is...

Line-Animated Hamburger Menu


This kind of SVG + CSS animation trickery is catnip to me. Mikael Ainalem shares how to draw a hamburger icon (the “three lines” thing you’re well familiar with), but then animate it in a way that is surprising and fun by controlling the SVG properties in CSS. CodePen Embed...

Creating a Gauge in React


You should really look at everything Amelia does, but I get extra excited about her interactive blog posts. Her latest about creating a gauge with SVG in React is unreal. Just the stuff about understanding viewBox is amazing and that’s like 10% of it. Don’t miss her earlier posts like...

SVG, Favicons, and All the Fun Things We Can Do With Them


Favicons are the little icons you see in your browser tab. They help you understand which site is which when you’re scanning through your browser’s bookmarks and open tabs. They’re a neat part of internet history that are capable of performing some cool tricks. One very new trick is the ability...

Fake Code


Here’s a fun little idea from Knut Synstad. You give it the URL of a GitHub Gist and it converts the Gist into grayscale rounded blobs (SVG) that sorta look like code if you squint. Maybe fun for interesting dynamic backgrounds or for whatever you might use code-looking stock art for. It...

Creating a Pencil Effect in SVG


Scott Turner, who has an entire blog "Exploring procedural generation and display of fantasy maps", gets into why vector graphics seems on these surface why it would be bad for the look of a pencil stroke: Something like this pencil stroke would require many tens of thousands of different...
