Animated aquarium with pure CSS

Here is a pure CSS experimental work to create a aquarium. Image / javascript hasn’t been used for aquarium or it’s animation. I have used jQuery only for random air-bubbles. All these animation is created by Pure CSS. Some times ago, I had written a article about “Animated bubbles upwards continuously with pure CSS“. You can also use this trick for air-bubbles.

Animated 3D Background Pattern using HTML5 < canvas >

Hi friends, today we are going to see a cool example of animated 3D Background using HTML5 <canvas> and javascript. The <canvas> element is part of HTML5 and allows for dynamic, script-able rendering of 2D shapes and bitmap images. It is a low level, procedural model that updates a bitmap and does not have a built-in scene graph. The <canvas> element is only a container for graphics… read more @ http://www.css-jquery-design.com/…

3D Parallax effect with CSS, javascript or jQuery

Parallax effect is a long-known and widely used animation effect. Lately, the parallax effect has become a wide-spread and quite a trend element in web design, often referred to as “parallax scrolling”. Internet if full on many great examples of application of this effect in web design. As I planned to create a cool parallax animated background, my first goal was to write the shortest and simplest code to achieve maximum awesomeness! I’ll show you how I did it. In this tutorial, I’ll teach you the simplest parallax scrolling technique. Here, I am going to introduce you, a most flexible/responsive slider i.e. Parallaxfx_DG. It is so easy and useful. I have decided that I will post a page dedicated to this slider with it’s features and API later.

The idea of the parallax effect it in web design is built around giving a page depth by using several layers of images, all moving at different speeds in response to movement of the mouse or mouse scroller, so that a viewer get a full sense of 3D on the page. Parallax scrolling is an interesting technique, where, as you scroll, the background images translate slower than the content in the foreground, creating the illusion of 3D depth. read more @ http://www.css-jquery-design.com/ …

Javascript or jQuery Fullscreen browser window – Html5 technology

The new html5 technology – fullscreen API gives us an easy way to present a web page content in full-screen mode. We are about to give you detailed information about the fullscreen mode. Just try to imagine about all possible advantages which you can get using this technology – full-screen photo albums, videos, and even games. But before we describe this new technology, I have to note that this technology is experimental, and not all the browsers support it.

Creating a Puzzle game using jQuery

Today we are making a simple puzzle game called “Doraemon Puzzle”. The purpose of the game is to slide 15 square blocks around to form an image. The goal of this tutorial is to look at this simple browser-based game and explain how it was made line by line. It’s a great way to learn jQuery. For this tutorial, We will use a 2D image of kid’s favorite cartoon “Doraemon” for square-sliding game.  I will go over each line of code to demonstrate the train of thought. I really do believe that breaking this game up into explanations on per-line basis will help you understand how to use jQuery in your own projects.

Concept about creating a Game as a jQuery Plugin

A jQuery plugin is a perfect way to create image slideshows, custom user interface controls and of course browser-based games. We won’t just write JavaScript code here, we will create a jQuery plugin.

A plugin is nothing more than our own custom jQuery method. You know how we have jQuery’s methods .css() and .animate()? Well, jQuery gives us the ability to extend its own functionality with custom methods that we create ourselves. Like the existing jQuery methods, we can apply the method we will create to a jQuery selector.

Well, the game is called “Doraemon Puzzle”, and we want to make our game “embeddable” inside an arbitrary HTML element like <div id=”game_area”>here</div> so we can move it around anywhere on the page.

creating-puzzle-game-with-jquery

The jQuery

We will actually create our own jQuery method and call it .puzzle_dg(). I have already created the plugin “puzzle_dg.min.js“.  Therefore, in order to launch the game inside an HTML element with id “#game_area” we will call this command:

$(window).load(function(){
    $('#game_area').puzzle_dg(140)
});

This will create and attach the game board to the div whose id is “game_area.” Also, each square will become 140 by 140 pixels in width and height based on the only passed parameter. You can re-size the game blocks and area easy by just changing this parameter.

In this tutorial I used the image of a Doraemon cartoon. You can replace it with any image you want.

Executing a custom method as shown in the code above will pass the selector string “#game_area” to our plugin function which grabs the DIV. Inside our custom method, we can refer to that selector/element using the this keyword. And we can also enable jQuery methods on it by passing it to the new jQuery object like so: $(this); — inside the extended function I have created.

The HTML

First, let’s prepare HTML markup for our game.  We have only call <div id="game_area"></div> for creating game area.

We have to include the awesome jQuery library. After including the jQuery library we have to include “puzzle_dg.min.js”  file as game plugin.

<!-- This is where the game will be injected -->
<div id="game_object"></div>

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.7.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/main.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">$(window).load(function(){
    $('#game_area').puzzle_dg(140)
});</script>

CSS

There are a few styles for our game:

#game_area {
	background-color: #ffffff;
	height: 550px;
	margin: 20px auto;
	position: relative;
	width: 550px;
}
#board div {
	background: url("images/doraemon.jpg") no-repeat scroll 0 0 #ffffff;
	cursor: pointer;
	height: 140px;
	line-height: 140px;
	position: absolute;
	text-align: center;
	width: 140px;
	/* css3 shadow */
    -moz-box-shadow: inset 0 0 20px #2caae7;
	-webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 20px #2caae7;
	-ms-box-shadow: inset 0 0 20px #2caae7;
	-o-box-shadow: inset 0 0 20px #2caae7;
	box-shadow: inset 0 0 20px #2caae7;
}

Conclusion

I tried to explain the code to the best of my ability here but some details were skipped because there is so much more to JavaScript. I hope you enjoyed this article. Thanks for reading!

Animate Full-Page Multiple Background images with fade-in & fade-out effect – jQuery

“How to change multiple background-image of body with effects?” – I think this is a major problem which all designers face. You can fade background colors but not background images. The way to work around this is to have your images as <img> tags and hide them by default display:none;. Give your images position:absolute and z-index:-1 so they act like backgrounds and are behind everything else.

Here’s a quick example of multiple images fading one after the other.

jquery-full-page-animated-background-images

The HTML

Html is very simple. Just add a div with multiple images which you want to animate / change in background with fade effects.

<div id="wrap">
<img class="bgfade" src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8526/8668341950_182b74faf2_z.jpg">
<img class="bgfade" src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8532/8667337535_6da0a9a261_z.jpg">
<img class="bgfade" src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8540/8667244539_d227f8c435_z.jpg">
</div>

The CSS

Now, We will use some CSS Technique which will create an illusion like background-image animation. The way to work around this is to have your images as <img> tags and hide them by default “display:none;”. Give your images “position:absolute” and “z-index:-1” so they act like backgrounds and are behind everything else. Now, set css property of div#wrap which includes these images to “position:fixed” and “top:0; left:0;” so that it will fix with page background.

#wrap{
	position:fixed;; 
	z-index:-1; 
	top:0; 
	left:0; 
	background-color:black
}
#wrap img.bgfade{
	position:absolute;
	top:0;
	display:none;
	width:100%;
	height:100%;
	z-index:-1
}

jQuery

Now, it is java-script’s turn. We will calculate browser window’s height & width. After that we will set width/height of div#wrap to browser so that background cover entire webpage. Now we have to animate our images. We will simple use function of fadeIn() and fadeOut() in images for this.

$(window).load(function(){
$('img.bgfade').hide();
var dg_H = $(window).height();
var dg_W = $(window).width();
$('#wrap').css({'height':dg_H,'width':dg_W});
function anim() {
    $("#wrap img.bgfade").first().appendTo('#wrap').fadeOut(1500);
    $("#wrap img").first().fadeIn(1500);
    setTimeout(anim, 3000);
}
anim();})
$(window).resize(function(){window.location.href=window.location.href})

Updated

I have updated the script. Actually, after re-sizing the browser we have to update the width/height of div#wrap. So, I am going to reload this window, when ever browser will re-size. It will help to re-calculate all these and refresh the animation. Div#wrap will re-size according to browser window and play animation smoothly.

After working on Responsive_DG_Slider,  which is a most flexible/responsive image slider with different random transition effects. After full-screen example, I am sharing another example with different transition effects. It is very easy to implement.

Here I am showing It’s Pagination circles with the height relative to the width functionality powered by the fantastic java-script library jQuery.

Configuring Your Slider

As we have done earlier, configuring the slider is very simple, you just need to place your images and call the initializer function and your slider is ready. Here’s how you can do this for liquid/responsive images slider with pagination.

The HTML

<div class="fluid_container">
        <div class="fluid_dg_wrap fluid_dg_charcoal_skin" id="fluid_dg_wrap_1">
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/1.jpg" data-src="slides/1-1280x720.jpg">
                <div class="fluid_dg_caption fadeFromBottom">
                    Responsive_DG_Slider is a responsive/adaptive slideshow. <em>Try to resize the browser window</em>
                </div>
            </div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/2.jpg" data-src="slides/2-1280x720.jpg">
                <div class="fluid_dg_caption fadeFromBottom">
                    It uses a light version of jQuery mobile, <em>navigate the slides by swiping with your fingers</em>
                </div>
            </div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/3.jpg" data-src="slides/3-1280x720.jpg">
                <div class="fluid_dg_caption fadeFromBottom">
                    <em>It's <strong>completely free</strong>, with tons of effects, Prev / next, pager, Start / Stop / Auto control controls and lot of customizable options.</em>
                </div>
            </div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/4.jpg" data-src="slides/4-1280x720.jpg">
                <div class="fluid_dg_caption fadeFromBottom">
                    Responsive_DG_Slider slideshow provides many options <em>to customize your project</em> as more as possible
                </div>
            </div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/5.jpg" data-src="slides/5-1280x720.jpg">
                <div class="fluid_dg_caption fadeFromBottom">
                    It supports captions, HTML elements and videos and <em>it's validated in HTML5</em> (<a href="http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fdemo.web3designs.com%2FResponsive_DG_Slider%2Fresponsive-slider-pagination-circle.htm" target="_blank">have a look</a>)
                </div>
            </div>
            <div data-thumb="slides/thumbs/6.jpg" data-src="slides/6-1280x720.jpg">
                <div class="fluid_dg_caption fadeFromBottom">

                </div>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>

The CSS

First we have to link it’s default css file.

<link rel='stylesheet' id='fluid_dg-css'  href='css/fluid_dg.css' type='text/css' media='all'>

Now some customization:

.fluid_container {
			margin: 0 auto;
			width: 100%;
		}

The jQuery

First, We have to add some jQuery library.

 <script type='text/javascript' src='http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.6.2.min.js'></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='Scripts/jquery.mobile.customized.min.js'></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src='Scripts/jquery.easing.1.3.js'></script> 
    <script type='text/javascript' src='Scripts/fluid_dg.min.js'></script>

After adding all these library we have to initiate the Responsive_DG_Slider.

jQuery(document).ready(function(){
		jQuery(function(){			
			jQuery('#fluid_dg_wrap_1').fluid_dg({thumbnails: true,height:"25%"});
		}); })

You have done!!

Now enjoy your liquid slider. Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts/ideas about the result.
