Good work guys, looking good.
This looks incredible! How did you make the animations? CSS or JS?
We stuck with CSS animations during most of the development, but eventually ported everything to Velocity.js. Not only JS animations are better for performance and control over the animation, but also because Velocity has a forcefeeding feature which proved essential to us. Getting the animation to start properly was the trickiest part, since it's rather heavy, and is happening right on page load.
Um trabalho espetacular pessoal!
The little Gandalf dude is an excellent touch.
The opening animation is pretty cool. However, if you're visiting more than once, I can imagine that it would get pretty frustrating having to wait each time. It'd be nice if sites like this would set a cookie or something to remember that you've already seen the animation at least once, and then not show the animation on your next visit. If only to speed up your time to seeing the content.
That's true and we're thinking about a way to take care of that :) Thanks for the feedback!
Hi. Thanks for your feedback :)
We were already considering something like that, but went with a different approach (I'm deploying right now). If you now access it via rubyconf.pt/?no-anim=true, the animation will be disabled.
We also made every internal link to the website use that parameter as well, so that you don't see the animation when going back and forth between pages.
The reasoning was that blocking like that via cookies would probably be too much. It would be like saying "we only want each computer to see this animation once"
It's still not perfect, but it's a first step
So proud of this :)
