	height: 150px;
	background: red;

	   @-webkit-keyframes swing {
                -webkit-transform: translateX(5px);
                transform: translateX(5px);
                -webkit-transform: translateX(-5px);
               transform: translateX(-5px);
                -webkit-transform: translateX(3px);
                transform: translateX(3px);
                -webkit-transform: translateX(-3px);
                transform: translateX(-3px);
                -webkit-transform: translateX(2px);
                transform: translateX(2px);
                -webkit-transform: translateX(0);
                transform: translateX(0);
         .swing:hover {
            -webkit-animation: swing 1s ease;
            animation: swing 1s ease;
            -webkit-animation-iteration-count: 1;
            animation-iteration-count: 1;

First part of the css for styling the div which we have added. Added height, width and a background for it. Second part is for adding the keyframe. Keyframe indicates differ positions in the animation; 0 to 100% of the animation. And the 3rd part of the swing effect css is adding animation to the element. This animation simply moves the element left and right when we hover on the div element.
