Easing variables  animation

Variables that can be reused for transition-timing-function properties, more powerful than the built-in ease, ease-in, ease-out and ease-in-out.

HTML
<div class="easing-variables">Hover</div>
CSS
:root {
  /* Place variables in here to use globally */
}

.easing-variables {
  --ease-in-quad: cubic-bezier(0.55, 0.085, 0.68, 0.53);
  --ease-in-cubic: cubic-bezier(0.55, 0.055, 0.675, 0.19);

Explanation
  • The variables are defined globally within the :root CSS pseudo-class which matches the root element of a tree representing the document.
  • In HTML, :root represents the <html> element and is identical to the selector html, except that its specificity is higher.
