Hi guys. Wondering what the best way is to loop a simple 'is typing' animation (see attached).

I want each circle to grow and shrink with a delay, so you get the wave effect. Obviously a pretty common pattern.

I can get the initial animation, but I'm struggling to find a way in getting the animation to cycle for a fixed time without copying/pasta large chunks of code and using a Utils.delay for each cycle. Ew.

Does anyone have a cleaner way to do this?

Utils.interval(time, function)

A simple way is to make it a GIF. :-X

Sorry, I was en route while answering. You want to create a function that animates your layer/layers once and just use Utils.Interval(time, animateFunction) to execute that function over and over (time = # of seconds to execute) creating the loop.

Great Stephen, makes sense. Thank you for saving me from GIF :)

Stephen Crowley

Ha! No problem! Just ping me if you get stuck or need further help.

You should really use svg for this

You can allocate an animation to a variable and call it on Utils.interval(time, fn)

CSS Animation should be enough (looped and played with animation delay), without touching a line of js
