We all know that Greensock is the right tool for any advanced animations on the web. With a few lines of code you can create this interesting effect.

In this demo the .box is animating from rotationY:-30 to rotationY:30 while the slightly bigger .shine is moving from x:50 to x:-50.

5 lines of JavaScript code is all it takes to create this fancy effect.

Simple use of Waypoints.js and CSS3 animations creates this animated step by step effect. It is created by adding an extra class .seen to the visible li elements.

It is also using the Waypoints build-in offset bottom-in-view to trigger the animation when the bottom of the step is in the browser viewport.

By default all li items are set to opacity: 0; translateX: -100px and the .seen class then animates visible items to opacity: 1; translateX: -100px.


When you explore these CodePen demos closely you’ll realize that it only takes a few lines of code and a creative thinking to come up with a similar effects.
