9780134096667: Web Animation Using JavaScript: Develop & Design (Develop and Design)

We’ve come a long way since the days of flashing banner ads and scrolling news tickers. Today, the stunning motion design of iOS and Android dramatically improves a user’s experience – instead of detracting from it. The best sites and apps of today leverage animation to improve the feel and intuitiveness of their interfaces. Sites without animation are starting to feel antiquated. This book provides you with a technical foundation to implement animation in a way that’s both visually stunning and programmatically maintainable. Throughout, we consider the balance between enriching a page with motion design while avoiding unnecessary flourishes
Readers will learn how to design loading sequences that ensure users stay fully engaged instead of tuning out, how to leverage simple physics principles to make apps respond naturally to users’ input (just like motion behaves in the real world), how to exploit CSS transforms to create rich depth in animations, and how to fully leverage JavaScript animation libraries like Velocity.js to streamline animation programming. From animation performance to theory, we cover everything needed to become a professional web animator. Whether you're a novice or professional web developer, this book is for everyone.
Why is all of this so important? Why is it worth your time to become a professional motion designer? For the same reason that designers spend hours perfecting their pages’ font and color combinations, motion designers perfect their animations’ transition and easing combinations: Refined products feel superior. They leave users whispering to themselves, “Wow, this is cool”, right before they turn to a friend and exclaim, “You gotta try this.”

Product Description:

Long gone are the days of flashing images and bouncing balls; we’re in an era where the stunning motion design of iOS and Android improves a user’s experience instead of detracting from it. Animation has been cemented as the most powerful tool in a web developer’s UI toolkit, animation is the driving force behind your app’s personality and visual sophistication. Does your app’s content casually bounce into view in a friendly way, or does it whip across the screen in a sleek and stylish way? This book guides you from choosing the right animation library all the way to extending it with your own animations in order to rival the polish of your favorite apps and sites. Discover the common errors people make, the best practices you should be following, and everything professional web animation has to offer when it’s fully mastered.

This book uses concise, focused examples to teach Web developers and UI designers how to create efficient and eye-catching motion effects in code. What is it that makes the best apps so sleek and intuitive? Readers will learn all the tricks, including how to design loading sequences that ensure users stay fully engaged instead of tuning out, how to leverage simple physics principles to make apps respond naturally to users’ input just like motion behaves in the real world, how to exploit CSS transforms to create rich depth in your animations, and how to use JavaScript libraries like jQuery and Velocity.js to enrich the user experience. Throughout, we will consider the balance between enriching a page with motion design and avoiding distracting users with unnecessary flourishes.

 

About the Author:

Julian Shapiro is a startup founder and a developer. His first startup, NameLayer, was acquired by Techstars. His current focus is advancing motion design on the web, and to that end he created the JavaScript library Velocity.js which is rapidly becoming one of the most popular animation libraries among UI designers, second only to jQuery. It is one of the most starred projects on GitHub and receives more than 45,000 monthly visits from developers. He was also awarded Stripe's Open Source Grant for his development on Velocity. Follow him for tweets on UI animation: @Shapiro. Julian lives in Vancouver, BC.
