We all use wave 👋 emoji a lot in web apps!

Next time when you use it, try to add a simple wave animation to it...

@keyframes wave-animation {
  0% {
    transform: rotate(0deg);
  }
  10% {
    transform: rotate(14deg);
  }
  20% {
    transform: rotate(-8deg);
  }
  30% {
    transform: rotate(14deg);
  }
  40% {
    transform: rotate(-4deg);
  }
  50% {
    transform: rotate(10deg);
  }
  60% {
    transform: rotate(0deg);
  }
  100% {
    transform: rotate(0deg);
  }
}

.wave {
  animation-duration: 2.5s;
  animation-iteration-count: infinite;
  animation-name: wave-animation;
  display: inline-block;
  transform-origin: 70% 70%;
}

I have also created a codepen for it:
