When you're designing a website, it's natural to want to include other materials than just plain old writing. Although animation can make a site feel livelier and more engaging, it can also have a negative effect if it's improperly implemented. For instance, if an animation takes too long to load, or only loads partially, it can actually make your site look less professional than you otherwise intended. Is there any way to avoid this issue and still include animations on your site? As it turns out, there are a few steps anyone can take to improve the optimization of their site and ensure that their audience always has a pleasurable experience when visiting.
The primary means of circumventing this problem involves the animation-play-state property. Since this property informs the browser of when content is playing or paused, it can be modified to say it's paused while content is still be loading on the site. As long as you set up a js-loading class beforehand, and then remove it once everything is fully loaded, then you can easily set up the animation-play-state to only switch into play mode once the js-loading class has been removed.
