How to create Glowing Texts using CSS?

in CSS on January 24, 2021

We can use the text-shadow property to create the light effect around the text. After that we can increase and decrease that light effect using animation.

CSS text-shadow Property

The CSS text-shadow property adds shadow to texts.

We can add a comma separated list of values to add shadows to the text.

For example,

We can add more than one shadow to the text by adding a comma separated list of values.


To create a CSS animation, we need to style the element with the animation property/sub-properties. It will let us configure the timing, duration, and other details of how the animation sequence should progress.

We can use shorthand property to set the animation values. The syntax is:

animation: name duration timing-function delay iteration-count direction fill-mode;

We don’t need to use all sub-properties for our example.

The @keyframes Rule

To change the animation from the current style to the new style at certain times, we can specify the styles inside the @keyframes rule. We also need to bind the animation to an element.
