AniX.js is a tiny (< 3kb gzipped) yet high-performance JavaScript animation library to animate any DOM elements using native CSS & CSS3 properties (e.g. color, background, rotate, flip, etc).

More features:

  • Available as jQuery or Vanilla JavaScript plugin.
  • Also works as a React component.
  • Compatible mode. Compatible with old browsers, old browsers do not have animation.
  • Use settimeout or css transtionend event.
  • Easing functions.

How to use it:

1. Install & import the AniX.js library.

# NPM
$ npm install anix --save
import { AniX } from 'anix';

2. Or directly include the AniX.js library in the document.

<!-- As a Vanilla JS plugin -->
<script src="/path/to/dist/umd/anix.umd.js"></script>

<!-- As a jQuery plugin -->
<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/dist/jq/anix.jq.js"></script>

3. Animate a DOM element by altering the CSS properties. Possible parameters:

  • ele: any DOM element
  • time: duration of the animation
  • args: CSS styles & configs
// As a Vanilla JS plugin -->
AniX.to(element,.5,{
  height:"100px",
  // more CSS styles and options here
});

//  As a jQuery plugin
$('.element').to(.5, {
  'left': Math.random() * $(window).width() + 'px',
  'background-color': getRandomColor(),
  // more styles and options here
});

4. Animate a DOM element from one style to another.

  • ele: any DOM element
  • time: duration of the animation
  • fromArgs: CSS styles & configs
  • toArgs: CSS styles & configs
// As a Vanilla JS plugin
AniX.fromTo(element,.5,{height:"200px"},{height:"100px"});

// As a jQuery plugin
$('.element').fromTo(.5, {color:'#ffcc00'}, {color:'#000'});

5. Apply a delay to the animation.

AniX.to(element,.5,{
  height:"100px",
  delay:0.3,
  // more CSS styles and options here
});

  height:"100px",
  onComplete: function(){
    alert("over");
  },
  onStart: function(){
    alert("start");
  },
  // more CSS styles and options here
});

AniX.kill(dom);
$('.element').kill(complete?: boolean)

// get transform
