    Timelined Timelined

    Timelined is a customizable CSS-only vertical timeline.

    Quick start

    Grab the compiled code

    The compiled SCSS code is the css directory, which will work fully work without the need of compiling anything. Don't forget to grab the demo.html file too, to get the idea of how the tool works.

    Compiling

    The styling is done with SCSS and you can compile it with any proper tool (I use node-sass). There are a couple of variables and other stuff to make the customization faster.

    Usage

    Basic structure

    <div class="timeline gray-blue"> <!-- Main element container -->
        <div class="timeline-block">    <!-- Single block -->
            <div class="timeline-icon"></div> <!-- Icon on the timeline -->
            <div class="timeline-content"> 
                <p> Any content </p> <!-- Content -->
                <div class="timeline-date">Yesterday</div> <!-- Date -->
            </div>
        </div>
        ...
    </div>
    
    Additional options

    Some additional customization is available by adding additional classes to the main container element .timeline:

    • .timeline-left - The line is on the left while the content is always on the right;
    • .timeline-alternating - Blocks are alternating between left and right of the line;
    • .timeline-collapsing - The timeline automatically switches to timeline-left mode when the container is small (800px, by default);
    • .timeline-with-arrows - Includes the arrows towards the line (works with default and left modes).

    .timeline-icon element options:

    • .timeline-icon-hide-border - Removes the border from the icon circle.

    Timeline icons

    As of now, Font Awesome icons can be used, as well as images:

    <div class="timeline-icon timeline-icon-hide-border"> <!-- Hiding border is optional -->
        <i class="fa fa-github fa-lg"></i>
    </div>
    <!-- Or -->
    <div class="timeline-icon">
        <img src="http://lorempixel.com/100/100/"/>
    </div>
    

    Hide timeline content - timeline icon only

    If you don't want to show the timeline content in the block, add .timeline-block-icon-only class on timeline-block. This makes the .timeline-content invisible.

    Furthermore, if you want to enter text instead of an icon (or an image), add .timeline-icon-text to .timeline-icon div. You might want to also use .timeline-icon-hide-border in addition. Adding the text content to a span container will give it the default background and border.

    Basic example of how everything would work:

    <div class="timeline-block timeline-block-icon-only">
        <div class="timeline-icon timeline-icon-text timeline-icon-hide-border">
            <span>This is my important text</span>
        </div>
        <div class="timeline-content"></div>
    </div>
    

    Additional schemes

    Schemes are a quick way to change the color of the line, icon on the timeline and border of the block. The names are self-explanitory: gray-red, gray-blue, blue-yellow-yellow, purple-flirt,blue-blue-blue. Adding the scheme name as a class on the main container will do the job.
