A popular aphorism has it that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” This picture is a low frame rate GIF capture of the website landing page for the Synthetic Reality domain. The object of the landing page is to present a measure of the proverbial eye candy sufficient to entice the viewer to look further and to provide a method for the viewer to explore further by some means of entry or navigation. And by the way, the actual web page displayed by our code is much smoother than our GIF image.


The landing page itself is rendered by two pieces of code, the first being an HTML file, Storybook.html, which is largely composed of JavaScript that is used for timing the animation sequences. Besides the script code, the HTML also contains the nominally semantic content for the page, i.e., the text messages, along with a few images, like the spinning globe logo and the hallway that are backgrounds for those introductory text messages. The second major piece of code is the Cascading Style Sheet (CSS), Landing.css, which defines the appearance of our content.


In spite of, or even more perhaps because of, the page focus is on content presented as animated images, we still need to keep the notion of accessibility in mind. This next image shows the results of the WebAIM accessibility test running the landing page code, and as may be seen, there are no errors, and some features (relative to navigation) are provided.


WebAIM accessibility test results


The HTML code uses some CSS libraries to accomplish the page display styling. To that end, Storybook.html uses the Bootstrap and the Material Design Bootstrap (MDB) libraries along with the Landing.css custom CSS file, which includes much of the animation functionality. Other animation functions for the page are accomplished by the JavaScript code, which uses jQuery, and a really neat animation package, the GreenSock Animation Program (GSAP), which is used to animate the introductory “expanding title” marquee. The script also scales the hallway image.


A final “closure” for the landing page is in the form of a character’s drop screen similar in concept to that seen in The Matrix movie with the addition of colors besides shades of green. This uses the canvas HTML element with JavaScript-generated content. The “matrix drop screen” is included in the article GitHub code repo as a standalone proggie.


All of the codebase and source content for the landing page, including the images and fonts, is also presented in the GitHub code repo, but as a convenience for the reader, we include the HTML file listing here next below:
