I can see myself almost certainly needing to use this clever technique at some point so I’m going to squirrel it away now for future me.

(The secret sauce in transitional web apps is progressive enhancement.)
I’m very excited about this proposal for animating transitions between web pages!
I’m less excited about doing it for single page apps, but I get why it’s the simplest place to start.
It would be nice to be able to animate the transition between pages if we want to on the web without resorting to hacks or full-blown architecture choices to achieve it.
Amen, Chris, amen!
The danger here is that you might pick a single-page app just for this ability, which is what I mean by having to buy into a site architecture just to achieve this.
This is a really nice introduction to CSS transitions with interactive demos you can tinker with.
All of this reminds me of Jake’s proposal for navigation transitions in the browser. I honestly think this would solve 80% of the use-cases for single page apps.
I honestly think if browsers implemented this, 80% of client-rendered Single Page Apps could be done as regular good ol’-fashioned websites.
Having to reimplement navigation for a simple transition is a bit much, often leading developers to use large frameworks where they could otherwise be avoided. This proposal provides a low-level way to create transitions while maintaining regular browser navigation.
