Topic: Possible bug in "wow" animation ?

capitalten free asked 3 years ago

There seems to be a bug in the "wow" (animation) code.

The issue is the timing of the execution. The animation actually happens before the scrolling occurs. In other words, the objects have already been "animated" before they become visible. When the objects are scrolled, they simply become visible.

Are you guys aware of this problem?

I tested on the Safari and Firefox for macOS.

(It used to be OK in the 4.5.14 version.)

The wow.js animation code is under refactoring right now. The issue is well known and it will be resolved in the future. The last stable version with wow.js before the changes was shipped in 4.8.7.

We are sorry that this happened. It will be resolved at the beginning of December with other important changes after we test everything to make sure nothing like that happens again.

Best Regards, Piotr

I wonder if this is why my "wow" class is messed up still in 2021... It sorta makes the animations pointless if we can't put wow in there and have it work properly. I notice a significant delay in the timing of the animations when I use wow with MDB's animations. And they also aren't smooth at all.

This issue has been resolved and should no longer occur. Can you create a snippet where we can recreate your issue?

Hi, I saw a latest update, 4.10.1, so does this include the wow animation fix?

Hi, We're still working on it.

There is the new latest release now, 4.10.0. Is this with the fixed wow animation?

capitalten free answered 3 years ago

Hi, I saw that there is a new version. We're still not into December yet, but I'm just wondering if this latest update covers this fix?

Piotr Glejzer staff commented 3 years ago

I think the latest update not covering at all bugs in the wow animation. Sorry about that. This code is still in our case to do. We will try to fix it to December as my teammate said 2 weeks ago.
