CSS Animating SVG with CSS Keyframe and Line Drawing Animations The Animation Challenge Solution

Great Job Guil!

Finally a course that generates animated graphics from text (instead of just text from text).

:smiley:

Hopefully this will get wide use in future Treehouse courses

(including any future NodeJS courses).


Some related stuff:

Also note the SVG keySpline feature allows to simulate acceleration and deceleration effects.

For an example see this page:

If you are dealing with animated svg in combination with D3js (by drawing in parallel) see this StackOverflow thread for a solution to try and control the timing:

For additional javascript library options regarding a NodeJS implementation that generates SVG see this article:
