How to Create a Beautiful Animated Outline for Each Container with Divi

Divi’s animation options have helped bring tons of website to life without the need for custom code. The built-inanimation settings are highly adjustable and they allow you to create really unique designs. One of the things you can do, for example, is creating an animated container outline. That’s exactly what we’ll show you in this post. We’ll add a border to each container and add animation settings that match the flow of each element. You’ll be able to download the JSON file for free as well!

Let’s get to it.
