Animating text in on a path

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I don't have a Codepen unfortunately as I'm unsure of what to look for. I have a client who has requested that their text animate in a way  similar towards this dribbble post they saw. It's pretty clear to me that this was made in AE or some other animating software and not code. I'm looking for a starting point on what this type of animation could be accomplished with.  My only thought right now is animating a SVG on a bezier curve? 


Anything would be helpful.


thanks in advance,

Welcome to the forum. :)


You can check out the Bezier plugin:



The MorphSVG plugin has a .pathDataToBezier() method.



You may also be able to make it work with a textPath animation. I wrote about that here:

Demo from that thread:

See the Pen vRzmeO by PointC (@PointC) on CodePen


Hopefully that points you in the right direction. Happy tweening.

Thanks @PointC  this looks to be exactly what I was looking for and should be a good start!  Much appreciated.
