The new property iterationComposite in the Web Animations API allows you to build on previous iterations. Here we have an animation going from a default state to a small rotation + a small translation. When we set it to a lot of iterations, each iteration will be on the last when we specify iterationComposite: 'accumulate'.

After the first iteration we will have the expected rotation + translation value. After the second iteration it will be twice the rotation and twice the translation. This is because, using the rotation only as an example, the first iteration goes from 0deg to 5deg. The second iteration will do the same 0 to 5 change but add it on top of where the first iteration ended (5deg) resulting in an end state of 10deg. The third iteration will do the same but on top of the 10deg, resulting in 15deg, and so on. The translation is also occurring in the same manner. At the end of the iterations (assuming 400 iterations), the resulting transform will be equivalent to rotate(calc(400 * 5deg)) translateX(calc(400 * .125vmin))

This Pen is a fork of Dan Wilson's Pen Spiral with WAAPI iterationComposite.
