What is Timeline?

ADVERTISEMENT

A timeline helps viewers quickly understand temporal relationships by presenting an event’s chronological order along a drawn line. Sometimes the definition of the term is broadened to include conceptual, year-by-year, or tabular chronologies. Infographics that incorporate text and graphic images for a better presentation are being used more frequently to illustrate timelines.

You can copy the source code of this application if you wish it; it is provided below with the timeline design.

The project’s structure will be included first, but first we must include certain information inside the link, such as the fact that we utilised a CSS file, which we must connect inside our HTML code. In order to incorporate the icons into our project, we also used some icons on our Timeline page, so we needed to include some icon links inside the head part of our HTML.

Adding the Structure for our Timeline page:

  • We will now use the <div> tag and the class “container” to create a container for our timeline structure in order to add structure to our timeline page.
  • We will now create the container for our various time lines using the three distinct div tags with the various classes (box, left box, and right box). Now, using the fontawesome classes, we will add a search icon to our div element with class (.box), and we will use the input tag with type text to create a search bar to our timeline page.
  • We will now add some new icons to our timeline page inside our left box container, and for those, we will use the various FontAwesome classes for various icons. Now, using the <nav> tag and under our nav tag, we will add the icons for profile, dashboard, settings, notifications, and messages.
  • We’ll use the unordered list to make three separate list items for our right-side box container. Using the div tag, we will add the date and task that we need to complete to our timeline.

Step2: Styling the Timeline Page (CSS)

In your stylesheet, copy and paste the CSS code provided below. To add styling to our timeline page we will use the class selector.

@import url("https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=PT+Sans&display=swap");

body {
  background: #e8cbc0;
}

.container {
  background: #232931;
  width: 540px;
  height: 500px;
  margin: 0 auto;
  position: relative;
  margin-top: 10%;
  box-shadow: 2px 5px 20px rgba(119, 119, 119, 0.5);
}

.leftbox {
  top: -5%;
  left: 5%;
  position: absolute;
  width: 15%;
  height: 110%;
  background-color: #50d890;
  box-shadow: 3px 3px 15px rgba(119, 119, 119, 0.5);
}

nav {
  margin: 2.6em auto;
}

nav a {
  list-style: none;
  padding: 35px;
  color: #232931;
  font-size: 1.1em;
  display: block;
  transition: all 0.5s ease-in-out;
}

.rightbox {
  padding: 0em 34rem 0em 0em;
  height: 100%;
}

.rb-container {
  font-family: "PT Sans", sans-serif;
  width: 50%;
  margin: auto;
  display: block;
  position: relative;
}

.rb-container ul.rb {
  margin: 2.5em 0;
  padding: 0;
  display: inline-block;
}

.rb-container ul.rb li {
  list-style: none;
  margin: auto;
  margin-left: 10em;
  min-height: 50px;
  border-left: 1px dashed #fff;
  padding: 0 0 50px 30px;
  position: relative;
}

.rb-container ul.rb li:last-child {
  border-left: 0;
}

.rb-container ul.rb li::before {
  position: absolute;
  left: -18px;
  top: -5px;
  content: " ";
  border: 8px solid rgba(255, 255, 255, 1);
  border-radius: 500%;
  background: #50d890;
  height: 20px;
  width: 20px;
  transition: all 500ms ease-in-out;
}

.rb-container ul.rb li:hover::before {
  border-color: #232931;
  transition: all 1000ms ease-in-out;
}

ul.rb li .timestamp {
  color: #50d890;
  position: relative;
  width: 100px;
  font-size: 12px;
}

.item-title {
  color: #fff;
}

.container-3 {
  width: 5em;
  vertical-align: right;
  white-space: nowrap;
  position: absolute;
}

.container-3 input#search {
  width: 150px;
  height: 30px;
  background: #fbfbfb;
  border: none;
  font-size: 10pt;
  color: #262626;
  -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
  -moz-border-radius: 5px;
  border-radius: 5px;
  margin: 0.9em 0 0 28.5em;
  box-shadow: 3px 3px 15px rgba(119, 119, 119, 0.5);
}

.container-3 .icon {
  margin: 1.3em 3em 0 31.5em;
  position: absolute;
  width: 150px;
  height: 30px;
  z-index: 1;
  color: #4f5b66;
}

input::placeholder {
  padding: 5em 5em 1em 1em;
  color: #50d890;
}

Step1:In order to change the default fonts, we will first utilise the import link to import a few new fonts from Google Fonts. After that, we will use the font-family property.

Using the background attribute in our selector and the body tag selector, we will now make the background colour peach.

body {
  background: #e8cbc0;
}

Step2:Using the class selector (.container), we will now add styling to our timeline container and set the background to “black.” The margin is set to “auto,” and the width and height are both set to 540 and 500 pixels, respectively. Using the margin-top property, we’ll set the top margin to 10%. Our timline container will also receive the box-shadow property.

We will add a 5% space by using the top and left properties of the class selector (.leftbox). Our left box’s background colour is set to “green” and the position is set to “absolute.”

.container {
  background: #232931;
  width: 540px;
  height: 500px;
  margin: 0 auto;
  position: relative;
  margin-top: 10%;
  box-shadow: 2px 5px 20px rgba(119, 119, 119, 0.5);
}

.leftbox {
  top: -5%;
  left: 5%;
  position: absolute;
  width: 15%;
  height: 110%;
  background-color: #50d890;
  box-shadow: 3px 3px 15px rgba(119, 119, 119, 0.5);
}

Step3:We will now add styling to our leftbox elements by giving the navbar a margin of 2.6em and a padding of 35px using the nav tag. Our icons on the left side have a font size of 1 rem. Our icons will all appear in separate lines because the display is set to “block” them all.

nav {
  margin: 2.6em auto;
}

nav a {
  list-style: none;
  padding: 35px;
  color: #232931;
  font-size: 1.1em;
  display: block;
  transition: all 0.5s ease-in-out;
}

Step4: Using the same class selector, we will now add styling to our right container. We will do this by setting the height to 100%, the font family to “PT Sans,” and the display to block. We will also use the (.rightbox) property to provide styling to our right container.

We will now style our unordered list and give our undordered some padding and margin using the child selector. You may comprehend the CSS concepts we employed, which are straightforward and simple to understand, by simply reading the code.

  min-height: 50px;
  border-left: 1px dashed #fff;
  padding: 0 0 50px 30px;
  position: relative;
}

.rb-container ul.rb li:last-child {

  position: absolute;
  left: -18px;
  top: -5px;
  content: " ";
  border: 8px solid rgba(255, 255, 255, 1);

  transition: all 1000ms ease-in-out;
}

ul.rb li .timestamp {

  position: relative;
  width: 100px;
  font-size: 12px;
}

.item-title {

}

.container-3 {
  width: 5em;
  vertical-align: right;
  white-space: nowrap;
  position: absolute;
}

}

.container-3 .icon {

  position: absolute;
  width: 150px;
