Become a master of web animation.

From drawing a single letter to multiline animated particle text. In this HTML canvas crash course, we will go from basics to advanced in a single class. We will cover everything you need to know aboutΒ using fontsΒ andΒ drawing textΒ on HTML canvas. Let’s explore what’s possible inΒ modern front-end web developmentΒ and turn text into complex animated particle systems.

Practice vanilla JavaScript with no frameworks and no libraries

Learn how to write creative coding prototypes and experiments in a simple procedural (line-by-line) codebase. Convert those experiments into a more modular object-oriented JavaScript syntax.

Experiment with code

Learn how to create the base version of the effect with me step by step. Apply the constellations algorithm for a completely different visual effect. Learn how to use canvas gradients, and custom web fonts, and how to change particle shapes and physics to get different visuals and movement.

This technique will also work with company LOGOS, even if the logo is a combination of text, symbols, and images.

Source code included

With the final lesson, you can download the complete source code, as well as some of my experimental variations of the codebase.

From basics to advanced

Basic knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript is required. The first part of the course will be very beginner friendly, we will learn how to set up an HTML canvas, and how to draw text using fillText and stroke text built-in methods and we will cover all available tools and techniques to style it.

The second part will cover more advanced algorithms. We will learn how to draw multiline-centered text on HTML canvas, how to turn it into particles, how to make those particle systems interactive and much more.

Have fun! πŸ™‚

Who this course is for:

  • Creative coders curious about advanced web animation
  • Front end web developers who want to practice vanilla JavaScript and animation algorithms
