How to Insert Animations in your Website using jQuery?
Viewers nowadays are expecting more than just a static website. They want it to be interactive, attractive, and easy to use. It is our responsibility as a designer to give the user a good browsing experience to the website. Though we have many programming languages to beautify our website, jQuery always makes a mark in providing beautiful effects and extraordinary animations to make your site unique, interesting, and interacting. There are many jQuery animation plug-ins that can attract more clients when running a business website.
Below is the different jQuery animation plug-ins and code to implement them:
1. jQuery’s Animated Cartoon Robot:
This Animation can be created by layering many div sections on each other, which are empty. For the background images, you need to use transparent PNGs. This is the most interesting animation to design. It looks tough, but it is easy to use when designing animations and games. The background will change when the robot moves, which make us, believe that the robot is moving in different places.
2. Animated Landscape Header using jQuery:
This is a new animation from jQuery Animations library. It consists of a cartoon-based themed landscape; when you slide this, the additional content about a certain topic is revealed. This is now being used on many websites, as it abstracts the content and displays the important content on the slide when you want to know more about it. Not only mouse clicks, the slide function works well with mouse hovering.
3. BBC Radio 1 Zoom Tabs:
You can set a BBC Radio 1 Zoom Tabs effect on images and content. This is used to zoom the image whenever you roll the mouse on the picture. This avoids clicking on Zoom-in and Zoom-out buttons explicitly. The tab slides up with this effect.
Check out the code.
4. Puffing Smoke effect in jQuery:
This is the cutest effect in the jQuery animations. This is a variant feature which allows you to display a smoking effect on the web page. Choose any picture and then implement the code to view the effect. This will be displayed on the website as if smoke is releasing from the picture you have chosen.
5. Scrolling Clouds Animations:
This animation can be implemented by using the code based on both jParallax and jQuery. This lets you scroll the clouds on the web page. You may have seen this even in some kinds of games, where clouds consist of some texts and they move in the background. The jQuery code helps in scrolling the clouds horizontally, whereas, for scrolling effect on the background, the code in jparallax is needed. The website environment can be scrolled forward or backward using this 2D effect.
