/add animation/03-dropdown-menu/README.md

Added animation/03-dropdown-menu/README.md to the chat

Yes, I see the content of the animation/03-dropdown-menu/README.md file. It describes an exercise to add animation to a dropdown menu, creating a bounce illusion when the dropdown expands close to its final end state. The desired outcome is shown in a GIF file, and the hints provided suggest using the transform-origin property and adding an intermediate step to the keyframe at-rule to achieve the bounce effect.

Is there any specific change or improvement you would like me to make to this file or any other file in the repository?

can you make the changes suggested in the readme?

To make the changes suggested in the animation/03-dropdown-menu/README.md, I need to see the contents of the following files:

  1. animation/03-dropdown-menu/style.css
  2. animation/03-dropdown-menu/script.js

Please provide the contents of these files so I can suggest the necessary changes.

Apologies for the oversight. I see the content of the animation/03-dropdown-menu/style.css and animation/03-dropdown-menu/script.js files now. I will suggest the necessary changes to add the bounce animation to the dropdown menu.

animation/03-dropdown-menu/style.css
<<<<<<< ORIGINAL
.visible {
  display: block;
}
=======
.visible {
  display: block;
  animation: expand 0.3s ease-out;
  transform-origin: top;
}

@keyframes expand {
  0% {
    transform: scaleY(0);
  }
  80% {
    transform: scaleY(1.1);
  }
  100% {
    transform: scaleY(1);
  }
}
>>>>>>> UPDATED

These changes add the bounce animation to the dropdown menu by creating a new keyframe animation called expand. The transform-origin property is set to top to make the dropdown menu start transforming from the top. The intermediate step at 80% of the animation creates the bounce illusion.

Applied edit to animation/03-dropdown-menu/style.css
