Chaining animations in transitions

Today, 20th March 2023, Ukraine is still bravely fighting for democratic values, human rights and peace in whole world. Russians ruthlessly kill all civilians in Ukraine including childs and destroy their cities. We are uniting against Putin’s invasion and violence, in support of the people in Ukraine. You can help by donating to Ukrainian's army.

Did you know that the transition CSS property has the ability to define the sequence of animations via comma:

transition: transform 3s ease-in-out 2s, opacity 4s ease-in 2.5s;

Here is a real-world example:


<div id="hover-me">
  <div class="animate-me">
    <div class="rotate-animate-me"></div>


  position: absolute;
  left: 50%;
  width: 50px;
  height: 50px;
  transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
  background: #f00;
  width: 100%;
  top: 0%;
  left: 0%;
  height: 100%;
  transform: scale(1);
  pointer-events: none;
  width: 100%;
  top: 50%;
  left: 50%;
  height: 100%;
  pointer-events: none;
  background: #00f;
  position: absolute;
  transform: translate(-50%,-50%) rotate(0deg);
  transition: width 0.5s ease-in-out 0.1s, height 0.5s ease-in-out 0.1s;
#hover-me:hover .animate-me{
  position: absolute;
  top: -200%;
  left: -200%;
  margin-left: 200px;
  transform: scale(2);
  transition: left 1s ease-in-out, top 1s ease-in-out 1s, transform 1s ease-in-out 3s, margin-left 1s ease-in-out 4.5s;
#hover-me:hover .rotate-animate-me{
  background: #f0f;
  transform: translate(-50%,-50%) rotate(2700deg);
  width: 0;
  height: 0;
  transition: background 1s ease-in-out 2s, transform 2s ease-in-out 4s, width 1s ease-in-out 6s, height 1s ease-in-out 6s;
