This post makes use of a number of interactive elements to help illustrate a few
concepts. Unfortunately these do not yet work on mobile devices - sorry mobile
I have for quite some time now wanted to play around with web development some
more, particularly using web technologies to build user interfaces of some
kind. However there is just so much out there it’s been impossible for me to
really get anywhere past a “Hello, World!” tutorial before I find myself trying
out the next new shiny.
So I’ve decided to abandon everything and try a bottom up approach where I see
how far I can push the core web technologies - HTML, CSS and
libraries out there I will have a better understanding of why I
needed it in the first place.
In this post I will be looking at implementing clicking and dragging
can apply to many kinds of interactions so in this instance I’m specifically
referring to clicking on an SVG element moving it around on the page as
illustrated by the demo above.
