So, this is a situation where I thought of the idea and I’m almost done coding it… But then I saw something on dribble that was literally the same exact idea. Literally exactly the same. Now, I had never seen this before. I just started creating it from my head. Then… I see it.

It was really a trip to be quite honest and there is no way this young lady saw my idea. I think it’s just one of those situations where two people independently came to the same conclusion.

But… in my mind they are somewhat different. Her animation is a gif, likely done with some sort of animation software. Mine is pure CSS. So.. in that way, they are different.
