VelocityJS: Accelerated JavaScript animation.


via Velocity.js.

Velocity is an animation engine with the same API as jQuery’s $.animate(). It works with and without jQuery. It’s incredibly fast, and it features color animation,transforms, loops, easings, SVG support, and scrolling. It is the best of jQuery and CSS transitions combined.

JavaScript Animation Proxy


via SkidX/tweene · GitHub.

Tweene is a JS library that helps to improve your favourite animation engine, allowing you to do more and better.

There are already a lot of good JavaScript animation libraries on the market, each one with specific features, strengths and weaknesses. Each programmer and each project have their specific requirements, so sometimes one library may be suitable while other times it could not.

Tweene is something different. It is an animation proxy: used as a wrapper of your chosen library, it may allow you to

write animations easily, thanks to its versatile interface that adapts itself to your programming style
gain extra features (play, pause, reverse, resume, restart and speed control, Timelines)
switch easily from one library to another any time you want.
Currently it can work together with GSAP, Velocity.js, Transit (CSS Transitions) or jQuery.
