Getting animated

propeller head
Do you talk geek?

I’m getting rather bored writing about my dog and how Florida sucks or how the world is going to hell or how Delta 8 is so great (it isn’t).

Now that I’m finally getting my COVID shots, I can turn my attention to less self-indulgent pursuits.

If perchance you, too, have any propeller head tendencies, that is to say, an obsessive interest in how, say, browsers work, and in particular, how to program complex SVG animations, you might enjoy reading my other blog.  Just click on the Tech option in the menu above.

You might also want to go to CodePen to read and play around with the actual code that demos my latest series of tech posts:  which is the only way to understand how stuff like this works.

Kilma Basita 4

For this version, I created a custom “Kilma” background using Inkscape.

The image here is rendered as a png.

If you go to Codepen, make sure you change the view to Full to get the er Full Effect.

Next step (Kilma 5), will be to render it as an embedded SVG file — but suddenly there’s a web design / aesthetic problem to deal with now.

Notice how boring and square the card looks next to this cool (for someone who is not a graphical design artist!) background?

The two elements do not “go” together at all.

Can anything be done about that?
