Bedazzle

Bedazzle is a JS animation library that allows you to do some pretty tricky stuff without much effort. It's quite similar to move.js but uses a frames rather than a then function.

Additionally, bedazzle is more or less a pure CSS manipulation library and doesn't support the additional easing functions that move does. It does work in partnership with your CSS though and aligns animation frames with your transition delays in the CSS (which is pretty neat).

Example Usage

Consider the following example, which animates a series of divs. First we have some stripped down html:

<html>
<body>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="demos.css" />
<div class="box"></div>
<div class="box"></div>
<div class="box"></div>
<div class="box"></div>
<div class="box"></div>
<script src="simple-bundle.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

Then some css which is used across most of the examples:

.box {
  width: 40px;
  height: 40px;
  padding: 5px;
  margin: 0 5px 5px 0;
  background: #f00;
  transition: all ease-in-out 0.5s;
}

.spinner {
  transition: all linear 0.5s;
}

Finally, a little bit of browserifiable css to make it all work:

var bedazzle = require('bedazzle');

bedazzle('.box')
  .frame(function() {
    this.x(200).y(200).rotate(-45);
  })
  .frame(function() {
    this.x(-200).opacity(0.2)
  })
  .frame(function() {
    this.x(200).y(50).rotate(315).height(-100).set('opacity', 1)
  });

Reference

bedazzle(elements, opts?)

Create a new Bedazzler instance which is used to orchestrate the animation of the supplied elements (or those elements matched by the selector referred to by elements if it is a string).

Bedazzler#frame(action?)

Define a new frame in the animation loop. If an action function is supplied, then it will be called (with this bound to the Bedazzler) once the frame becomes active.

Bedazzler#end(callback)

Once the current frame has completed, trigger the supplied function.

Bedazzler#loop()

When all of the defined frames have completed, restart from the beginning. An example of using loop can be found in the 'loopy' example, shown below:

var bedazzle = require('bedazzle');
var stylar = require('stylar');

function nextColor(elements) {
  stylar(elements[0]).set('background', 'blue');
}

bedazzle('.spinner')
  .frame(function(elements) {
    this.x(50).rotate(180);
    nextColor(elements);
  })
  .loop();
