CSS3Warp is a proof of concept: create Illustrator like “warped” text (text following an irregular path) with pure CSS and HTML.
How does it work?
CSS3 brings new text-transform options: rotation, skew, matrix, transform-origin… By applying the right transformations to every single letter it is possible to create the illusion of text following a path.
Type your text into the webform, click “Warp it!”, then alter the path as you like. You can attach your text to a circle or a bezier. Add or delete points, or change position, angle and radius of the circle. When your done, click “Generate code”. Copy the CSS and HTML into your document.

Codrops shared a slick animated content menu with jQuery for a restaurant theme. The menu items will be animated and when clicked, a content area with more information will appear. Also, he background image is going to change according to which menu item was clicked.
The main idea is to have a restaurant menu with the different menu categories displayed. Each content are will have some foods/drinks listed. Once a content box is shown, the menu items are going to disappear. If we click on the close button to close the box, the menu items will be shown again.

This requires a lot of processing power that web browsers just cannot provide currently, and as a result smooth animations are nearly impossible. But there is a way around this limitation. If you’ve played around with the demo, you’ve noticed how smooth it runs. This is because the frames are generated ahead of time and each one is built as a separate canvas element.
After the initial load of the page (when the frames are generated), the job of the plugin becomes to simply cycle through the frames.
