snabbt.js – Minimalistic JavaScript Animation Library

snabbt.js is a minimalistic JavaScript animation library. It focuses on moving things around like translating, rotating, scaling, skewing and resizing your elements. The goal is to make a library that will let users make smooth animations without needing to know too much about browser rendering. However, there are a few limitations:

  • All transforms work on pixels or radians. Any unit conversion has to be done beforehand.
  • No arbitrary property animations, e.g. colors, padding, margin or line height animations.
  • For performance reasons, snabbt never queries the DOM. This means that in some cases you need to transforms yourself.(Specifically when using value feeding)
  • snabbt.js needs requestAnimationFrame and matrix3d to work, so no IE < 10
