Apple TV Style Word Rotator With Vanilla JS


A beautiful, smooth word rotator inspired by Apple TV. Written in plain JavaScript and CSS/CSS3.

How to use it:

1. Wrap the words in span elements as follows:

  I lOVE ❤️
  <div class="mask">
    <span data-show>JavaScript.</span>

2. The necessary CSS/CSS3 styles.

h2 {
  width: 980px;
  font-size: 100px;
  font-family: 'Inter';
  line-height: 1.06;
  letter-spacing: -0.02em;
  color: #1d1d1f;
.mask {
  height: 106px;
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;
  margin-top: 6px;
.mask span {
  display: block;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  position: absolute;
  top: 100px;
  padding-bottom: 6px;
  background-size: 100% 100%;
  -webkit-background-clip: text;
  background-clip: text;
  -webkit-text-fill-color: transparent;
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
.mask span[data-show] {
  transform: translateY(-100%);
  transition: .5s transform ease-in-out;
.mask span[data-up] {
  transform: translateY(-200%);
  transition: .5s transform ease-in-out;
.mask span:nth-child(1) {
  background-image: linear-gradient(45deg, #0ecffe 50%, #07a6f1);
.mask span:nth-child(2) {
  background-image: linear-gradient(45deg, #18e198 50%, #0ec15d);
.mask span:nth-child(3) {
  background-image: linear-gradient(45deg, #8a7cfb 50%, #633e9c);
.mask span:nth-child(4) {
  background-image: linear-gradient(45deg, #fa7671 50%, #f45f7f);

3. Enable the word rotator with the following JS snippets.

setInterval(function () {
  const show = document.querySelector('span[data-show]')
  const next = show.nextElementSibling || document.querySelector('span:first-child')
  const up = document.querySelector('span[data-up]')
  if (up) {
  show.setAttribute('data-up', '')
  next.setAttribute('data-show', '')
}, 2000)
