There’s not even any other room for displaying clock information. Well, its there but just hidden under a click. We see additional two note papers beside the initial layout. These three component on click make up for current hour, minute and second. However, date is not lost during this effect with all of today’s component appearing in a harmony.

24. Calendar App

A number of animation effects for navigation in the calendar involved sliding up and down the entire page. The animation that we get here is only the month and year content sliding up as transition effect. I didn’t mean the other layout remains the same. It would be useless if that’s case but since we are looking to materialize the css calendar, that’s not the case either. Other contents also change however they don’t have same level of noticing power. They happen in a swift while we can clearly see the sliding or flipping action for month year component. That’s necessary to indicate users of change as well in your bootstrap calendar project.
