Animating Text with Blast.js

via Animating Text with Blast.js.

Animating an HTML element with CSS or JavaScript nowadays, with the help of libraries, is more or less an easy task. But you can only animate a full existing element.

This means if you want to animate a single word in a paragraph, you have to wrap the word in an individual element (like a span) and then target it accordingly.

If you have only one or two span elements like this, it is not a big deal, but what if you want to animate each character in a paragraph? For every character, you will have to create a span, which adds a lot of extra markup and makes the text difficult to edit. That’s why Blast.js exists.
