Hi everyone,

I was wondering if there was a quick way to do this without messing with paths and such.

Based on the image below, I'm using TimelineMax to animate the "trending" lines to move individually left to right (eg;  x:"-=140px") but along an angle of 17deg.

I'm not adept at using Codepen but here's a sample of my code to move one line:


TweenMax.set(trendingL, {rotation:'343deg'});


var tl01 = new TimelineMax({delay:2});
tl01.from(trendingL, 1, {x:"-=140px", ease:Back.easeOut});


Of course, this just moves it from left to right along at 0 deg.


Eventually, some of the lines will move separately to reveal other type.

You could rotate the parent element, I think.

I hear what you're saying.

That's a good and simple idea that totally evaded me. I'll try it and get back to you.


I would still like to know if there's a coding solution if anyone has one.

Pure genius dude! Thanks!


It's always the simple and obvious, right in front of me, that seems harder to see.

Thanks again!

if you don't have a parent element handy, you cans always use some good old maths:
