How to Create a Text Typing Animation in CSS

Below I have shared the complete tutorial on how it is made for you. Before sharing the tutorial, let me tell you something about this Text Typing Animation Effect

First I designed the webpage. Then here I have used some text which is in a completely fixed state and the rest has used a lot of text which will be typed in multiple ways. Of course, there is a cursor that makes this animation even more interesting.

Step 1: Design the web page

I designed the webpage using the following CSS codes. Here I have used black as the background color of the web page.

body {
  margin: 100px auto;
  margin-left: 50px;
  color: white;
  background: #191d21;
  font-family: sans-serif;
Design the web page

Step 2: Add text to Typewriter

I have added the text using the following HTML codes. The color of the tests typed here is green. I have used overflow hidden for only one text to be seen. Overflow Hidden helps to see only one of the typed text and hide the rest.

I am a <span class=”type”>
    <span>Web Designer</span>
Add text to Typewriter
.type {
  vertical-align: bottom;
.type > span {
  color: #14f3db;
  overflow: hidden;

Step 3: Add animation to CSS text typing

Now I have added animation using the following CSS. I have used three codes for animation here. First I gave the animation in the cursor. Then I used animation in the text. 

Here you will have 2 seconds to type each text. It will take two seconds to remove it again. At the end of it all, I used 16 seconds for the complete typing animation. Since I have used four texts here and it will take 4 seconds for each text to be typed and removed. I have used infinite here so that this method continues till infinity time.

.type span span {
  overflow: hidden;
    c 0.5s infinite steps(1),
    t 2s linear infinite alternate,
    m 16s steps(4) infinite;
.type span span:before {
  content:” “;

Step 4: Enable text typing animation 

Above we added animation but we need to use @keyframes to make it work.
I first executed the text using @keyframes. At 90-100% of the total time (2 seconds) we will see the text. It will start to be seen from 0% to 90% and we will see it completely.

@keyframes t{
  90%,100% {width:100%}

 I have executed the cursor using the following CSS codes. The cursor will be seen every 0.5 seconds and will be hidden again.

@keyframes c{
  0%,100%{box-shadow:5px 0 0 #0000}
  50%    {box-shadow:5px 0 0 white}
@keyframes m{
  100% {transform:translateY(-400%)}
