What are CSS Sprites?

CSS Sprites are a means of combining multiple images into a single image file for use on a website, to help with performance.
Sprite may seem like a bit of a misnomer considering that you’re creating a large image as opposed to working with many small ones, but the history of sprites, dating back to 1975, should help clear things up.
While the total image size (sometimes) goes up with sprites, several images are loaded with a single HTTP request.

Sprite Animation Cat Run

Nowadays the web technology gets an update to the sprite concept. You must know about this new feature. In this area, I have done an animation effect of the cat run with the help of sprite concept.

Sprite Animation

The set of cat images was aligned with 1 single image file with the corresponding space. We call one by one image using “background-position” with a piece of code in simple CSS animation. And also we used “animation-name .8s steps(8) infinite;” animation concept in CSS for this cat run animation.

animation-duration: 0.8s;
animation-timing-function: steps(8, end);
animation-delay: 0s;
animation-iteration-count: infinite;
animation-direction: normal;
animation-fill-mode: none;
animation-play-state: running;
animation-name: play1;
