Code something amazing with the IBM library of open source blockchain patterns. Content provided by IBM.

In today’s lesson, we have made animated gears with CSS3. The result looks very nice. I have used CSS3 keyframes, animation and transforms (rotate) in order to achieve this result. Please pay attention – the current demo works well only in Firefox and Chrome / Safari (webkit).


Here are the samples and downloadable package:

Ok, download the example files and let's start coding !


Step 1. HTML

As usual, we start with the HTML. There are easy DIV elements.

index.html

<div class="container">
    <div class="gear" id="gear1"></div>
    <div class="gear" id="gear2"></div>
    <div class="gear" id="gear3"></div>
    <div class="gear" id="gear4"></div>
    <div class="gear" id="gear5"></div>
    <div class="gear" id="gear6"></div>
    <div class="gear" id="gear7"></div>
</div>

Step 2. CSS

Here are the CSS styles of our animated gears.

css/layout.css

/* CSS3 keyframes */
@-webkit-keyframes ckw {
    0% {
        -moz-transform: rotate(0deg);
        -webkit-transform: rotate(0deg);
    }
    100% {
        -moz-transform: rotate(360deg);
        -webkit-transform: rotate(360deg);
    }
}
@-moz-keyframes ckw {
    0% {
        -moz-transform: rotate(0deg);
        -webkit-transform: rotate(0deg);
    }
    100% {
        -moz-transform: rotate(360deg);
        -webkit-transform: rotate(360deg);
    }
}
@-webkit-keyframes cckw {
    0% {
        -moz-transform: rotate(360deg);
        -webkit-transform: rotate(360deg);
    }
    100% {
        -moz-transform: rotate(0deg);
        -webkit-transform: rotate(0deg);
    }
}
@-moz-keyframes cckw {
    0% {
        -moz-transform: rotate(360deg);
        -webkit-transform: rotate(360deg);
    }
    100% {
        -moz-transform: rotate(0deg);
        -webkit-transform: rotate(0deg);
    }
}

    -moz-animation-duration: 13.5s;

    -webkit-animation-name: ckw;
    -webkit-animation-duration: 13.5s;
}
