Building an Animated Search Input with Ionic [v6]


Having a search input field isn’t overly complicated – but what separates standard apps from great apps is the underlying animation that you sometimes don’t even notice.

In this Quick Win we will build an animated search input, similar to behaviours you see in all popular modern apps from big companies.

We’ll start by using a simple CSS transition which might already be enough in some cases, but we combine this with the Ionic animations API to create a powerful and smooth micro animation.

If you enjoy stuff like that, make sure you check out my book Built with Ionic that covers a lot more content just like this!

The full quick win with snippets is only available to Ionic Academy members.
