Hey Juliano Maia

Thanks for the kind words! It’s pretty interesting/cool what you can achieve once you start playing around with the code :D

So, you’d like to animate panels in different scenarios?

I can’t see this being too much of an issue. You are likely going to need a little JavaScript to help you out for finer control over when things should animate if basing on add/remove.

If you refer to the demo, there are some animations for flipping a panel and increasing the size of a panel on hover.

I think animating the transform property is going to likely be your best bet.

Let’s say for example, we create a new panel and add it to the layout(this must go before the focus curtain if one is being used)

We could have a class such as dw-panel--entering for newly added panels.

Let’s assume this class adds an animation that slides in a panel from the bottom and also fades in. Something maybe like;

@keyframes panel-enter {
from {
opacity: 0;
transform: translateY(100%);
to {
opacity: 1;
transform: translateY(0);
.dw-panel--entering { animation: panel-enter .5s; }

When we add the new panel to our layout we could then hook into when the animation ends and remove the class on end using animationend.

Hope that helps!
