[meta] Animate all the things!
It would be nice if we had a subtle animation for things that currently just appear out of nowhere (like new system notes on an MR). @jschatz1 mentioned Facebook & Twitter as examples. They just have content sort of slide down to make room for the new content. It also might be cool, now that we (almost) have real-time pipelines, to have a subtle animation when the status changes from one to the other. For example if it switches from
running it could gradually fade to the next color, or the
running icon could animate in a circular way. I know @dimitrieh was working on something like that. It would be a nice feature that would make GitLab more fun, just as long as the animations aren't in-your-face, or a strain on resources (like a neverending CSS animation). What do you think @awhildy?
