In this snippet, we will share with you the scroll animation effect that will change the background color, text color, heading/title font properties with animation using HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Let's start witht the HTML structure.

HTML Structure

<body class="light" id="body">
    <section class="section" dd-theme="light">
    .
    .
    .
    </section>
.
.
.
</body>

In the html, we will simply apply the theme class name to body. And we will replace the class on window.scroll dynamically.

Next, we will add HTML the content inside our section.

HTML Content Structure

<h1 class="title">Lorem ipsum Dolor sit!</h1>
<div class="clearfix"></div>
<div class="grid">
  <div class="grid3-5">
    <div class="section-image">
      <img src="images/pexels-zoe-pappas-1006965.jpg" alt="image" class="img">
    </div>
    <p class="content">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipisicing elit. Soluta iusto, ea laudantium quas repellendus quo tenetur sed sapiente perferendis, deserunt molestias qui, eos beatae voluptatibus obcaecati nemo autem vitae delectus.</p>
    <p class="content">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipisicing elit. Soluta iusto, ea laudantium quas repellendus quo tenetur sed sapiente perferendis, deserunt molestias qui, eos beatae voluptatibus obcaecati nemo autem vitae delectus.</p>
    <div class="clearfix"></div><br />
    <button class="form-btn">Explore!</button>
  </div>
</div>

List of the theme class=>

  • dd-theme="light"
  • dd-theme="dark"
  • dd-theme="solarized-light"
  • dd-theme="solarized-dark"

CSS Varibales fo Themes

.light {
  --clr-primary: #000;
  --clr-secondary: #eae5e9;
  --clr-dots: #00000066;
  --size: 4rem;
  --weight: 900;

  --clr-dots: #83949699;

  --weight: 900;
  --letter-spacing: 3px;
}

You can create your own color theme according to your need.

CSS

body {
  font-family: var(--font);
  background-color: var(--clr-secondary);
  transition: var(--transition);
}
.container {
  width: max(800px, 70%);
}
.section {
  padding: 4rem 0;
  transition: var(--transition);
}
.section-image {
  position: relative;
  display: inline-block;
}
.section-image::after {
  position: absolute;
  content: "";
  background: radial-gradient(var(--clr-dots) 0%, transparent 20%);
  background-size: 15px 15px;
  padding: 10px;
  bottom: 0;
  right: -50px;
  width: 70px;
  height: 225px;
  z-index: -1;
  transition: var(--transition);
}
.section-image .img {
  border-radius: var(--radius);
  margin: 2rem 0;
}
.form-btn {
  display: inline-block;
  font-family: var(--font);
  font-weight: 700;
  border: none;
  background: var(--clr-primary);
  color: var(--clr-secondary);
  padding: 1rem 3rem;
  cursor: pointer;
  border-radius: var(--radius);
  transition: var(--transition);
}
.title {
  font-family: var(--font);
  font-weight: var(--weight);
  letter-spacing: var(--letter-spacing);
  font-size: var(--size);
  color: var(--clr-primary);
  transition: var(--transition);
}
.content {
  color: var(--clr-primary);
  transition: var(--transition);
}
.shapes svg {
  position: fixed;
  top: 100px;
  transition: var(--transition);
  fill: var(--clr-primary);
  width: 24px;
  height: 24px;
}
.shapes svg:first-child {
  right: 200px;
}
.shapes svg:nth-child(2) {
  right: 250px;
}
.shapes svg:last-child {
  right: 300px;
}

@media (max-width: 768px) {
  .light {
    --size: 2rem;
    --weight: 900;
    --letter-spacing: 0;
  }
  .shapes svg {
    top: 0;
  }
  .shapes svg:first-child {
    right: 0;
  }
  .shapes svg:nth-child(2) {
    right: 40px;
  }
  .shapes svg:last-child {
    right: 80px;
  }
}

Next, we will create a javascript function to change the color theme on scroll.

Javascript

window.onscroll = onScroll;
let sections = document.querySelectorAll("[dd-theme]");
let total_section = sections.length;
let window_offset;
let window_half_height = Number(window.innerHeight) / 2;
let pointer = 0;
// Create the themes array with the values of class names.
let themes = [];
sections.forEach(c => {
  themes.push(c.attributes['dd-theme'].value);
})
function onScroll(event) {
  let scroll_y = window.scrollY;
  // e.offsetTop / window_height
  window_offset = window.pageYOffset;
  let top_pos = Number(window.pageYOffset) + window_half_height;
  let section_top = sections[pointer].offsetTop;
  if( top_pos > section_top ) {
    body.classList = themes[pointer];
    if( pointer != (total_section - 1)  ) {
      pointer++;
    }
  }  else if ( top_pos < section_top  ) {
    pointer--;
    body.classList = themes[pointer];
  }
}

In the above script, we have calculate the window top, scrollTop value, & section top value and according to that we have replaced the body class(theme) names.

Thank you for reading. I hope you guys liked the snippet.
