Create Horizontal Timeline Using HTML And CSS (Source Code)

Create Horizontal Timeline Using HTML And CSS (Source Code)

Hey Guys, Welcome To Our Blog, In Today’s Blog We Are Going To See How To Create An Horizontal Timeline Using HTML and CSS. Before That, We Could See What This Project Is About.

A Horizontal Timeline is simply a line plot that describes a horizontal representation of some event that occurred at a time. Here we used three OSs android, IOS, and Windows that represents the current OS used by the world in a timeline representation. Look’s Better right?…

So,  Let’s Begin Our Horizontal Timeline Project By Adding The Source Codes. For That, First, We Are Using The Html Code.

 

HTML CODE For Horizontal Timeline

<div class="container">
  <ul class="timeline">
    <li class="active-tl">Android</li>
    <li>Windows</li>
    <li>iOS</li>
  </ul>
</div>

 

Here We have simply created a div tag with a class name and inside of the div, we just added an unordered list class with three contents Android, IOS, and Windows, the android content inside the list is given by a separate class name active-tl for the active class purpose by giving a color shade on it for reference. then close the list and div tag.

So We have just added the contents that need to be represented in a horizontal format, So let’s make them styling by adding the CSS properties which is given down below.

 

CSS CODE For Horizontal Timeline

body{
  background: #fff;
}

h1{
  text-align: center;
  text-transform: uppercase;
}

.container{
  width: 1200px;
  margin: auto;
}

.timeline{
  counter-reset: test 20;
  position: relative;
}

.timeline li{
  list-style: none;
  float: left;
  width: 33.3333%;
  position: relative;
  text-align: center;
  text-transform: uppercase;
}

ul:nth-child(1){
  color: #4caf50;
}

.timeline li:before{
  counter-increment: test;
  content: counter(test);
  width: 50px;
  height: 50px;
  border: 3px solid #4caf50;
  border-radius: 50%;
  display: block;
  text-align: center;
  line-height: 50px;
  margin: 0 auto 10px auto;
  background: #fff;
  color: #000;
  transition: all ease-in-out .3s;
  cursor: pointer;
}

.timeline li:after{
  content: "";
  position: absolute;
  width: 100%;
  height: 1px;
  background-color: grey;
  top: 25px;
  left: -50%;
  z-index: -999;
  transition: all ease-in-out .3s;
}

.timeline li:first-child:after{
  content: none;
}
.timeline li.active-tl{
  color: #555555;
}
.timeline li.active-tl:before{
  background: #4caf50;
  color: #F1F1F1;
}

.timeline li.active-tl + li:after{
  background: #4caf50;
}

 

Now We have added our CSS code for the Horizontal Timeline. Here is the first step we just add the background, text-align, and transform using the universal mark(*) and body section.

In the Second Step, We are fixing the margin and width for the horizontal timeline and in the unordered list class we again add a value for the position to not change which is absolute then we make it for alignments and fixing backgrounds, text colors, width, margin, and text transform to make it attractive.

The code for the above explanation is down.

body{
  background: #fff;
}

h1{
  text-align: center;
  text-transform: uppercase;
}

.container{
  width: 1200px;
  margin: auto;
}

.timeline{
  counter-reset: test 20;
  position: relative;
}

.timeline li{
  list-style: none;
  float: left;
  width: 33.3333%;
  position: relative;
  text-align: center;
  text-transform: uppercase;
}

 

Now In the Third step, We are using an nth-child CSS property to add some events in a specific part of the code. Here we fixing a color for the first content using the Nth child(1) property to make the text colored green and the content is Android.

After that, we are adding the code inside the timeline for a straight line that connects with other content. and now again we are adding some specific properties to the second content like color, background, transition, z-index, counter, etc.. and make it leave without shading to make it represent as nonactive.

Further, The contents with transition are also added for animation then for the movement of shades to contents we add separate css properties using child class so then it passes the content and applies shade on it when it is active.

The Code for a particular explanation is down below.

ul:nth-child(1){
  color: #4caf50;
}

.timeline li:before{
  counter-increment: test;
  content: counter(test);
  width: 50px;
  height: 50px;
  border: 3px solid #4caf50;
  border-radius: 50%;
  display: block;
  text-align: center;
  line-height: 50px;
  margin: 0 auto 10px auto;
  background: #fff;
  color: #000;
  transition: all ease-in-out .3s;
  cursor: pointer;
}

.timeline li:after{
  content: "";
  position: absolute;
  width: 100%;
  height: 1px;
  background-color: grey;
  top: 25px;
  left: -50%;
  z-index: -999;
  transition: all ease-in-out .3s;
}

.timeline li:first-child:after{
  content: none;
}
.timeline li.active-tl{
  color: #555555;
}
.timeline li.active-tl:before{
  background: #4caf50;
  color: #F1F1F1;
}

.timeline li.active-tl + li:after{
  background: #4caf50;
}

 

Hey, There we have successfully completed adding the source code for the project. But We also want to see it how it came Right?.. So we can use the output section for the project preview.
