#Animate.css GitHub release Build Status devDependencies Status chat Just-add-water CSS animation

animate.css is a bunch of cool, fun, and cross-browser animations for you to use in your projects. Great for emphasis, home pages, sliders, and general just-add-water-awesomeness.


To install via Bower, simply do the following:

$ bower install animate.css --save

or you can install via npm:

$ npm install animate.css --save

##Basic Usage

  1. Include the stylesheet on your document's <head>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="animate.min.css">

or use the version hosted by CDNJS

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/animate.css/3.5.2/animate.min.css">
  1. Add the class animated to the element you want to animate. You may also want to include the class infinite for an infinite loop.

  2. Finally you need to add one of the following classes:

##Usage To use animate.css in your website, simply drop the stylesheet into your document's <head>, and add the class animated to an element, along with any of the animation names. That's it! You've got a CSS animated element. Super!

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="animate.min.css">

or use the version hosted by CDNJS

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/animate.css/3.5.2/animate.min.css">

You can do a whole bunch of other stuff with animate.css when you combine it with jQuery or add your own CSS rules. Dynamically add animations using jQuery with ease:

$('#yourElement').addClass('animated bounceOutLeft');

You can also detect when an animation ends:

$('#yourElement').one('webkitAnimationEnd mozAnimationEnd MSAnimationEnd oanimationend animationend', doSomething);

View a video tutorial on how to use Animate.css with jQuery here.

Note: jQuery.one() is used when you want to execute the event handler at most once. More information here.

You can also extend jQuery to add a function that does it all for you:

    animateCss: function (animationName) {
        var animationEnd = 'webkitAnimationEnd mozAnimationEnd MSAnimationEnd oanimationend animationend';
        this.addClass('animated ' + animationName).one(animationEnd, function() {
            $(this).removeClass('animated ' + animationName);

And use it like this:


You can change the duration of your animations, add a delay or change the number of times that it plays:

#yourElement {
  -vendor-animation-duration: 3s;
  -vendor-animation-delay: 2s;
  -vendor-animation-iteration-count: infinite;

Note: be sure to replace "vendor" in the CSS with the applicable vendor prefixes (webkit, moz, etc)

Custom Builds

Animate.css is powered by gulp.js, and you can create custom builds pretty easily. First of all, you’ll need Gulp and all other dependencies:

$ cd path/to/animate.css/
$ sudo npm install

Next, run gulp to compile your custom builds. For example, if you want only some of the “attention seekers”, simply edit the animate-config.json file to select only the animations you want to use.

"attention_seekers": {
  "bounce": true,
  "flash": false,
  "pulse": false,
  "shake": true,
  "headShake": true,
  "swing": true,
  "tada": true,
  "wobble": true,

Pull requests are the way to go here. I apologise in advance for the slow action on pull requests and issues. I only have two rules for submitting a pull request: match the naming convention (camelCase, categorised [fades, bounces, etc]) and let us see a demo of submitted animations in a pen. That last one is important.
