Animated Template for Habpanel OH1.8.x?

Hi friends I’ve been using habpanel for a week and I really enjoy it.
I know that OH 2 allows users to import widgets from json file which is created by public and those with animated effects like in this post : Custom widget: Current Weather appeals me very much! But importing widgets don’t let me edit their appearance and that’s quite irritating!

And people who are using Habpanel OH 1.8.3 like me need more supports from experts from this forum. Can anybody show me how to create an animated template with some eye-catching effects? It would be a great, great help, for all of the beginners, like me. To be honest, I prefer to use template and code to design my own UI because I can edit whatever I want rather than importing.
Please help!
