Transitions

Each transition has its own mixin, with multiple parameters that can customize the details of the effect. To create a transition class, just @include the mixin inside a class. Motion UI will create the necessary boilerplate for you.

Here’s a basic fade in class. The first parameter of every transition mixin is a state, which is either in or out. In transitions reveal elements, while out transitions hide them.

.fade-in {
  @include mui-fade(in);
}

Here’s what the CSS looks like.

.fade-in.mui-enter {
  opacity: 0;
  transition-property: opacity; }

.fade-in.mui-enter.mui-enter-active {
  opacity: 1; }

The last three parameters of every transition mixin are the same: $duration, which sets the speed of the effect; $timing, which adjusts the easing; and $delay, which adds a delay before the effect starts.

.fade-in {
  // A long, long fade
  @include mui-fade(in, $duration: 10s);
}

Mixins

mui-fade()

Creates a fade transition by adjusting the opacity of the element.

Parameters:

  • state (Keyword) - State to transition to. (Default: in)
  • from (Number) - Opacity to start at. Must be a number between 0 and 1. (Default: 0)
  • to (Number) - Opacity to end on. (Default: 1)
  • duration (Keyword) - Length (speed) of the transition. (Default: null)
  • timing (Keyword Function) - Easing of the transition. (Default: null)
  • delay (Duration) - Delay in seconds or milliseconds before the transition starts. (Default: null)

mui-hinge()

Creates a hinge transition by rotating the element.

Parameters:

  • state (Keyword) - State to transition to. (Default: in)
  • from (Keyword) - Edge of the element to rotate from. Can be top, right, bottom, or left. (Default: left)
  • axis (Keyword) - Axis of the element to rotate on. Can be edge or center. (Default: edge)
  • perspective (Length) - Perceived distance between the viewer and the element. A higher number will make the rotation effect more pronounced. (Default: 2000px)
  • turn-origin (Keyword) - Side of the element to start the rotation from. Can be from-back or from-front. (Default: from-back)
  • fade (Boolean) - Set to true to fade the element in or out simultaneously. (Default: true)
  • duration (Duration) - Length (speed) of the transition. (Default: null)
  • timing (Keyword Function) - Easing of the transition. (Default: null)
  • delay (Duration) - Delay in seconds or milliseconds before the transition starts. (Default: null)

mui-slide()

Creates a sliding transition by translating the element horizontally or vertically.

Parameters:

  • state (Keyword) - State to transition to. (Default: in)
  • direction (Keyword) - Direction to slide to. Can be up, right, down, or left. (Default: left)
  • amount (Length) - Length of the slide as a percentage value. (Default: 100%)
  • fade (Boolean) - Set to true to fade the element in or out simultaneously. (Default: false)
  • duration (Duration) - Length (speed) of the transition. (Default: null)
  • timing (Keyword Function) - Easing of the transition. (Default: null)
  • delay (Duration) - Delay in seconds or milliseconds before the transition starts. (Default: null)

mui-spin()

Creates a spinning transition by rotating the element. The turn unit is used to specify how far to rotate. 1turn is equal to a 360-degree spin.

Parameters:

  • state (Keyword) - State to transition to. (Default: in)
  • direction (Boolean) - Direction to spin. Should be cw (clockwise) or ccw (counterclockwise). (Default: cw)
  • amount (Number) - Amount to element the element. (Default: 0.75turn)
  • fade (Boolean) - Set to true to fade the element in or out simultaneously. (Default: false)
  • duration (Duration) - Length (speed) of the transition. (Default: null)
  • timing (Keyword Function) - Easing of the transition. (Default: null)
  • delay (Duration) - Delay in seconds or milliseconds before the transition starts. (Default: null)

mui-zoom()

Creates a scaling transition. A scale of 1 means the element is the same size. Larger numbers make the element bigger, while numbers less than 1 make the element smaller.

Parameters:

  • state (Keyword) - State to transition to. (Default: in)
  • from (Number) - Size to start at. (Default: 1.5)
  • from (Number) - Size to end at. (Default: 1)
  • fade (Boolean) - Set to true to fade the element in or out simultaneously. (Default: true)
  • duration (Duration) - Length (speed) of the transition. (Default: null)
  • timing (Keyword Function) - Easing of the transition. (Default: null)
  • delay (Duration) - Delay in seconds or milliseconds before the transition starts. (Default: null)
