Animated Responsive Layout with CSS3 Media Queries

What Are Media Queries

CSS3 brings us many new features we use for our web designs and one of the features that can help improve the web site usability is Media Queries.

Media Queries Boilerplate

/* Smartphones (portrait and landscape) ———– */
@media only screen
and (min-width : 320px)
and (max-width : 480px) {
/* Styles */
}
/* Smartphones (landscape) ———– */
@media only screen
and (min-width : 321px) {
/* Styles */
}
/* Smartphones (portrait) ———– */
@media only screen
and (max-width : 320px) {
/* Styles */
}
/* iPads (portrait and landscape) ———– */
@media only screen
and (min-width : 768px)
and (max-width : 1024px) {
/* Styles */
}
/* iPads (landscape) ———– */
@media only screen
and (min-width : 768px)
and (max-width : 1024px)
and (orientation : landscape) {
/* Styles */
}
/* iPads (portrait) ———– */
@media only screen

/* Styles */
}

@media only screen

/* Styles */
}
/* Large screens ———– */
@media only screen

/* Styles */
}
/* iPhone 4 ———– */
@media
only screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio : 1.5),
only screen and (min-device-pixel-ratio : 1.5) {
/* Styles */
}

Animating the layout change
With CSS we can add animation to your different elements, we can also assign animation to the different properties on those elements.

If we are using media queries then we are most likely going to change the Width and Height of an element so that it can fit on the page. As we know that width and height are changing we can add animation to the CSS property of Width and Height by using the following code.

/* webkit */
-webkit-animation-property: -webkit-width;
-webkit-animation-property: -webkit-height;
-webkit-transition-duration: 1s;
/* moz */
-moz-animation-property: -moz-width;
-moz-animation-property: -moz-height;
-moz-transition-duration: 1s;
/* opera */
-o-animation-property: -o-width;
-o-animation-property: -o-height;
-o-transition-duration: 1s;
