- CSS transitions are one of the ways…we can create animation with CSS,…even though they're not called animations.…It's confusing but true.…By definition, animation means causing change over time…and transitions absolutely do that.…They just do it in a little bit of a different way…than CSS keyframe animations do.…In this tutorial, we'll be creating a button…that transitions on hover…to take a quick look at what CSS transitions can do.…Transitions need a beginning and end state…to transition between,…that's why we tend to use them on things like hover states.…
The initial styles of our element are the beginning state…and the hover state becomes our end state.…So if we look at our CSS, the styles on our button initially…are the beginning state for our button…and we need to create an end state, which will be the hover.…So we'll add a rule for a hover state…and we'll start adding some properties here.…On hover, I'd like to have this button…both grow and change color.…I think that would make a good effect.…We'll do the color change…
