The JavaScript to enable the timeline.

//DOM STRINGS OBJECT
const DOM = {
  timelineDate: document.querySelectorAll('.timeline__date'),
  timelineElem: document.querySelectorAll('.timeline__elem'),
  timelineBar: document.querySelector('.timeline__bar')
};

//TIMELINE ELEM SET DIRECTION TO EVENT ITEMS (left or right oriented)

//getting direction from .timeline-elem
const __getDir = timelineElem => {
  
  if (timelineElem.classList.contains('timeline__elem--left')) {
    return 'left'
  } else if (timelineElem.classList.contains('timeline__elem--right')) {
    return 'right'
  }
  
};

const setDirEvent = () => {
  
  DOM.timelineElem.forEach(elem => {
    
    const direction = __getDir(elem);
    
    const timelineEvent = elem.querySelector('.timeline__event');
    
    timelineEvent.classList.add(`timeline__event--${direction}`);
    
  });
  
};

//TIMELINE ELEM DATE STYLES (background)
const __getBGImage = () => {
  
  const compStyle = getComputedStyle(DOM.timelineBar);
  
  return compStyle.backgroundImage;
  
};

const __getBGSize_height = () => {
  
  const timebarHeight = DOM.timelineBar.offsetHeight;
  
  return timebarHeight;
  
}

const __getBGPos_y = (dateElem) => {
  
  const timelinebarBox = DOM.timelineBar.getBoundingClientRect();
  
  const dateBox = dateElem.getBoundingClientRect();
  
  const pos_y = dateBox.top - timelinebarBox.top;
  
  return pos_y;
  
}

const setDateBG = () => {
  
  const bgImg = __getBGImage();
  
  const bgHeight = __getBGSize_height();
  
  DOM.timelineDate.forEach(elem => {
    
    //setting bgImage
    elem.style.backgroundImage = bgImg;
    
    //setting bgSize
    elem.style.backgroundSize = `100% ${bgHeight}px`;
    
    //setting bgPosition
    const dateOffset = __getBGPos_y(elem);
    
    elem.style.backgroundPosition = `0 -${dateOffset}px`;
    
  });
  
};

//ONLOAD FUNCTION
window.addEventListener('load', () => {
  
  //setting direction class to the timeline event block
  setDirEvent();
  
  //set date background styles
  setDateBG();
  
});
