SVG: Using Animation

SVG can also be animated, and in this demo we use CSS3 Animation to do so.

Basic Implementation

Rectangle

<svg>
<rect width="200" height="200" fill="slategrey">
<animate attributeName="height" from="0" to="200" dur="3s"/>
</rect>
</svg>

Circle

<svg>
<circle r="100" cx="100" cy="100" fill="slategrey">
<animate attributeName="r" from="0" to="100" dur="3s"/>
</circle>
</svg>

Moving Element

Rectangle

<svg>
<rect x="0" y="0" width="200" height="200" fill="slategrey">
<animate attributeName="x" from="0" to="200" dur="3s" fill="freeze"/>
</rect>
</svg>

Circle

<svg>
<circle r="100" cx="100" cy="100" fill="slategrey">
<animate attributeName="cy" from="100" to="200" dur="3s" fill="freeze"/>
</circle>
</svg>

Animate Multiple Attributes

<svg>
<circle r="100" cx="110" cy="110" fill="slategrey" stroke="#000" stroke-width="7">
<animate attributeName="r" from="0" to="100" dur="3s"/>
<animate attributeName="stroke-width" from="0" to="10" dur="7s"/>
</circle>
</svg>

Following Path

<svg>
<defs>
<path id="thepath" fill="none" stroke="#000000" d="M0.905,0.643c0,0,51.428,73.809,79.047,166.19s68.095,38.572,107.144-18.095
c39.047-56.667,72.381-92.382,113.333-42.381S335.5,178.5,374,200.5s82-18.5,97.5-33.5"/>
</defs>
<circle r="15" cx="15" cy="15" fill="slategrey">
<animateMotion dur="3s">
<mpath xlink:href="#thepath"/>
</animateMotion>
</svg>

Transformation

<svg>
<rect width="200" height="200" fill="slategrey">
<animateTransform attributeName="transform" type="scale" from="0" to="1" dur="3s"/>
</rect>
</svg>
