SVG is extremely powerful, with its reduced HTTP requests and crispness on any display. It becomes increasingly more interesting as you explore its capabilities for responsive animation and performance boons. When you animate SVG, you must be aware of normal image traits like composition, color, implementation, and optimization. But when you animate, it increases the complexity of each of these factors exponentially. This practical book takes a deep dive into how you can to solve these problems with stability, performance, and creativity in mind. Learn how to make SVG cross-browser compatible, backwards compatible, optimized, and responsive Plan and debug animation Make a complex animation responsive, as many sites are responsive Profile each animation technique in terms of performance so that you know what you're getting in to with each library or native technology

Scalable Vector Graphics -- or SVG -- is the new XML-based graphics standard from the W3C that will enable Web documents to be smaller, faster and more interactive. J. David Eisenberg's insightful book takes you through the ins and outs of SVG, beginning with basics needed to create simple line drawings and then moving through more complicated features like filters, transformations, and integration with Java, Perl, and XSLT.Unlike GIFs, JPEGs or PNGs (which are bitmapped), SVG images are both resolution- and device-independent, so that they can scale up or down to fit proportionally into any size display or any Internet device -- from PDAs to large office monitors and high-resolution printers. Smaller than bitmapped files and faster to download, SVG images can be rendered with different CSS styles for each environment. They work well across a range of available bandwidths.SVG makes it possible for designers to escape the constant need to update graphics by hand or use custom code to generate bitmap images. And while SVG was created with the Web in mind, the language has a variety of other uses. SVG greatly simplifies tasks like: Creating web sites whose graphics reflect the content of the page, changing automatically if the content changes Generating graphs and charts from information stored in a wide variety of sources Exchanging detailed drawings, from architectural plans to CAD layouts to project management diagrams Creating diagrams that users can explore by zooming in and panning around Generating bitmap images for use in older browsers using simple automatable templates Managing graphics that support multiple languages or translations Creating complex animation By focusing sharply on the markup at the foundation of SVG, SVG Essentials gives you a solid base on which to create your own custom tools. Explanations of key technical tools -- like XML, matrix math, and scripting -- are included as appendices, along with a reference to the SVG vocabulary.Whether you're a graphic designer in search of new tools or a programmer dealing with the complex task of creating and managing graphics, SVG Essentials provides you with the means to take advantage of SVG.

CSS animations open up a whole new way to look at and use CSS to bring motion to the web in creative ways. This Pocket Guide is designed to help you jump into using CSS animations in your own projects, providing a strong foundation on which to start experimenting and creating. In this book Val covers the basics of CSS animations, walking you through a series of examples, and discussing practical considerations for dealing with browsers and fallbacks. You'll have everything you need to start playing with CSS animations in just a couple of hours. Who should read this book? This is a book for web designers or developers who are new to CSS animations and want to start using them in their own work or experiments. Topics include: PART 1: CSS ANIMATION BASICS An explanation of the basic building blocks for creating animations with CSS.

This section shows how and when to use these properties. PART 3: UNDERSTANDING EASING Where an object goes is important, but how it gets there is even more important. This section covers the details of the easing keywords and custom bezier functions. PART 4: COMMON ANIMATION TASKS This section puts our CSS animation knowledge so far into practice, going into the details behind four example animations: an infinitely looping animation, animating with steps, using animation-play-state and applying multiple animations to one object. PART 5: PERFORMANCE AND BROWSER SUPPORT This section looks at the practical aspects of using CSS animations in production work. It covers how to determine browser support and what to consider when choosing your approach to fallbacks.

Using CSS to add transitions and animation to web page designs takes advantage of the dynamic nature of designing for the web. They are quickly becoming the de facto way designers can add a measure of delight and surprise to web pages. More importantly, they can help make web pages more usable. Using stunning visuals and design, CSS Animations and Transitions for the Modern Web teaches web designers how to dynamically change design elements on a web page over time. It starts by showing a variety of ways you can transform elements and then teaches two different methods for setting the change in motion in action. The book will start the topic as simply as possible and build on the basics with more elaborate techniques. Simple examples will be presented throughout and the book will close with more detailed, complex, and practical examples. For most of his examples, Steven uses the new open-source code editor from Adobe, Brackets, but the book is perfectly usable with any code editing environment or even a simple text editor.

If you’re a web developer or designer ready to learn Ruby on Rails, this unique book is the ideal way to start. Rather than throw you into the middle of the framework’s Model-View-Controller architecture, Learning Rails 5 works from the outside in. You’ll begin with the foundations of the Web you already know, and learn how to create something visible with Rails’ view layer. Then you’ll tackle the more difficult inner layers: the database models and controller code. All you need to get started is HTML experience. Each chapter includes exercises and review questions to test your understanding as you go.
