How can I produce something like that

enter image description here

into a PDF using TikZ? (Note: It does not need colors or shadows, a simple square would be fine)

I remember there was an arara-methode, which produces the single pics for the animated gif.

% arara: pdflatex
% #arara:  I DON'T KNOW

    Is "this" an animated gif? If so, that has nothing to do with arara, just have a look at the animate and media9 packages, as despicted at tex.stackexchange.com/q/5396/34551. – Clément Oct 28 '15 at 19:18
  • Yes, in fact, an animated gif. I thought, I have to produce the single pictures for the gif-file using a (or two?) arara-rules. But it is long time ago, I read about. I do not remenber the names. – cis Oct 28 '15 at 19:20

  • Gif are not convenient at all, you should convert your file to an other format. Cf. tex.stackexchange.com/q/74073/34551 or tex.stackexchange.com/q/7602/34551 – Clément Oct 28 '15 at 19:47
  • I do not want to use the shown file. I would like to produce that with latex / arara – cis Oct 28 '15 at 19:51
