JavaScript Animations, Part II: Final Thoughts - Doc JavaScript


A Final Word

In this column we enhanced our JavaScript animation library. All animations are currently based on real-time calculations, so you can embed an endless animation on your site.

The new animation engine also supports parallel consecutive animations. Furthermore, you can now animated nested elements. We introduced two main animation paths:

  1. A straight line (slideBy() and slideTo())
  2. A circle (circle())

If you would like to add another animation method to the library, be sure to let us know. We'd love to expand the library over time to make it even more useful. In this column we explained:

  1. How to create real-time animations.
  2. How to execute consecutive animations.
  3. How to create nested animations.
  4. How to overcome the resize/reload bug.
