Configuration

Javascript settings are set via a global _386 object.

Animation

The loading animation can be configured through the following values:

  • fastLoad [bool] (default: false) - disable all animation.
  • onePass [bool] (default: false) - when set, this will disable the second flyby cursor
  • speedFactor [float] (default: 1.0) - This controls how fast the animation happens. Higher values mean faster animation.

Example:

_386 = { onePass: true, speedFactor: 1.25 };

Note: For the progressive animation to work you may need to set this stanza in your regular CSS: body { visibility: hidden }.
