Simplified SVG markup.

<svg viewBox="0 0 100 100">
    <path d="M10 10H90V90H10Z"/>
    <circle cx="50" cy="50" r="40"/>
</svg>

SVG is an alternate universe version of HTML, focused on graphics instead of documents.

- Richard Westenra

πŸ™ŒΒ  SVG has a DOM Β  πŸ™Œ

Β 

πŸ™Œ Illustrations... πŸ™Œ

that you can manipulateΒ with code!

But...

we can style HTML elements to make animations too.Β 

SVG is built for drawing

in a way that HTML

and CSS are not.

Umm.

What's "Tweening?"

TweenMax.method(element, duration, vars)
TweenMax.to(element, duration, vars)
TweenMax.from(element, duration, vars)
TweenMax.from(".cat", duration, vars)
TweenMax.from(".cat",2, vars)
TweenMax.from(".cat",2,{xPercent: 250})
TweenMax.from(".cat",2,{xPercent: 250})
Timeline.from(".cat",2,{xPercent: 250});
Timeline = new TimelineMax();
Timeline.to(".arm",2,{rotation: -60});
Timeline.from(".mic",2,{yPercent: 30});
Timeline.from(".cat",2,{xPercent: 250})
Timeline = new TimelineMax();
.to(".arm",2,{rotation: -60})
.from(".mic",2,{yPercent: 30})
Timeline.from(".cat",2,{xPercent: 250},1)
Timeline = new TimelineMax();
.to(".arm",2,{rotation: -60},"-=1")
.from(".mic",2,{yPercent: 30},"Label")
Timeline.from(".cat",2,{xPercent: 250},1)
Timeline = new TimelineMax();
.to(".arm",2,{rotation: -60},"-=1")
.from(".mic",2,{yPercent: 30},"Label+=2")
Timeline.timeScale(1.5)
Timeline.play()
Timeline.pause()
Timeline.reverse()

It's not all about the tools.
