On Scroll Effect Layout

An on scroll effect template that animates the sides of sections once they are in the viewport.

This Blueprint is a template for a on scroll effect layout. We’ve had some requests on how to achieve this effect of animating elements once they are in the viewport and decided to create a Blueprint for it. It works with adding a class for animating the two sides of a section. There is an example effect defined and also some media queries for dealing with smaller screens.

On devices that support touch, we will not apply any effects due to the scrolling logic on touch devices. Please read more about this issue in this article by TJ VanToll: onscroll Event Issues on Mobile Browsers.
