Animate an SVG path with CSS

Read Time:1 Minute, 34 Second

A while ago, I found this super cool effect that animated an SVG path as it was drawn on the canvas.

It turns out it’s pretty easy to create this with CSS, so let’s see how it’s done.

Animating an SVG path with CSS

The first part was to create an SVG line, and I used sketch to draw a triangle-looking element.
You can draw anything you want or even use online free tools.

Once your shape is complete, add it to your HTML. For reference, here is my one.

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now we can move to animate it, and since I’m only using one SVG, I added the code to the main SVG element.

The first thing we want to do is set the stroke dash array, and its offset.

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

The dash array refers to the width of the dash and the offset to the starting point. 1000 is bigger than our actual line so it will be split into 1000 pieces.

Then we want to add an animation that removes the offset over time.

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then we can create the animation to remove the offset, as mentioned.

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And that’s it. Our animation will now run to show the drawing of the line.

You can even play with this and change the array and offset sizes, which will impact how your animation runs, and you can even make it appear as a dashed border animation.

For reference, you can see the result in this CodePen.
