CSS Animation on Element Creation

by mithril

Level: beginner • Mithril.js Version: latest

A simple example animating an element via CSS when the element is created. This is straight-forward by just adding an CSS animation to a class normally. There is no need for specific Mithril.js code. This example was taken from the official website at https://mithril.js.org/animation.html#animation-on-element-creation and slightly modified.

Live Example


Type Name URL


.fancy {
  animation:fade-in 2.0s;
  font-size: 2rem;
@keyframes fade-in
  from {opacity:0;}
  to {opacity:1;}


const FancyComponent = {
    view: function() {
        return m(".fancy", "Hello world")

m.mount(document.body, FancyComponent)

The snippet is using the most current version of Mithril.js framework. It is aimed at beginners and shows some basic recipes.

In addition to the Mithril.js hyperscript function m(), here we can see an example of Mithril.js' m.mount API method.
