Instructors

This go-at-your-own-pace course has 3 hours of video lessons that will teach you how to create beautiful, smooth page transitions on your websites using CSS and Javascript.

In this course, SuperHi has designed and produced a series of projects covering how to make websites go from disconnected page navigation to seamless, animated transitions as your users click and interact around your web designs.

You will learn how to integrate the Barba Javascript library into your websites which will then allow you to add CSS and other Javascript techniques to add smooth, harmonious effects to your design work.

Who is this course for?

From graphic designers looking to bring movement to their creations to developers aiming to add a bit of pizzazz to their site interactions, this course is for anyone who wants to learn how to add seamless interstitial page transitions.

This is an intermediate course when it comes to page transitions, though we would recommend basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, and a bit of Javascript before starting. If you don’t have this just yet, trying our Learn To Code Now book, or taking either our Foundation HTML, CSS + JS course or our Javascript for Designers course will help you feel as prepared as possible.

What do I need?

A computer (Windows, Mac or Linux) with the latest version of Chrome installed and a broadband internet connection. That’s all!

Ava Sherry

In our first project, a portfolio site for a modern art photographer, we'll cover how to think about page transitions, how to add Barba to our project and what is the difference between transitions and views?

Canvas Magazine

In Canvas Magazine, a blog, we add in more complex page transitions using GSAP timelines and add in more Javascript plugins such as imagesLoaded. We also cover how to make your current JS code work with Barba.

Wanderers

In our final project, a gallery style site, we take what we've learned from the previous projects and apply it to full-page, wipe effect transitions based on whether we click previous or next.

All our course videos are taught using the SuperHi Editor, but you'll be able to apply everything you'll learn to a code editor of your choice. Many students go on to use other code editors, for example, if their workplace has an existing standard.

Our SuperHi Editor is designed with many smart features to help avoid wasted time looking for things like a typo or missing bracket (which is why we made it!), but the same code concepts apply to any editor.
