Over the lifetime of the web we’ve made great strides forward with what’s achievable in a browser.
When something extremely complex is achieved, we often see a pattern where, over time, that extremely complex thing becomes dramatically easier to achieve. At the same time, it also becomes more accessible, more polished and more impressive.
In the case of animation, there have been many ways that we developers have been able to create animated objects on the web. Yet it is only really since the WebGL specification was created in 2011 that we’ve seen animation on the web follow the trend and become easier to achieve, whilst becoming more accessible, polished and impressive.
Now anyone who is familiar with Codepen.io (a sharing platform for developers) can probably vouch for the sheer volume of Three.js projects out, there but I thought I would share a few of my favourites.
Many great teams across the web are utilising the Three.js library and we at True are no different. In fact, as part of our own recent redesign for the True site, Three.js was used to achieve moving particles. You can see them in action on our homepage and on some of our key case studies for Fuller’s, Pet Drugs Online and Furniture Village.
