  • Creating a Border Animation Effect with SVG and CSS | Codrops
    Today we’d like to explore a very subtle, but interesting border animation effect that can be seen on the creative website of Carl Philipe Brenner. When you hover over one of the white portfolio items in the grid, you will see a subtle animation happening: the grid item becomes transparent and the border lines of each side animate clockwise, creating a really nice effect. In this case, the effect is done by animating the widths or heights of several spans with some JS. We’ll try a different approach that uses SVG and CSS transitions. Please note that this technique is highly experimental.

    Fluidbox was initially a simple personal challenge I set myself, with two simple aims — to replicate the distraction-free, fluid lightbox seen on Medium, and to improve on it such that it will allow linking to a larger-resolution image. The plugin deals with higher resolution, linked images elegantly, such that it only preloads them when users click on the thumbnails, therefore conserving bandwidth usage for your visitors and your server(s).
