Flipper

Flipper is a jQuery plugin that animates changes in numbers. It uses CSS3 transitions to accomplish the animations. Tested on webkit(Chrome/Safari) and mozilla(Firefox/Iceweasel). It has 6 different modes:

  • Fall: Retro flip down clock like animation. Top half falls onto bottom
  • Rise: Reverse of Fall. Bottom half rises up to top
  • Open: Both halves flip around from the front to the back
  • Close: Both halves flip around from the back to the front
  • Clap: Both halves flip toward the middle
  • Slide: Top half slides over bottom half, them back up behind th top half

Demo

(Practical demos coming soon)

  • Simple Clock

Configuration

There are three options currently. type, speed, and queueSuper.

  • type: fall(Default), rise, open, close :: Which animation to show
  • speed: slow, normal(Default), fast :: How fast the animation should run
  • queueSuper: true or false :: Whether or now the queue should run at super speed (see wordplay example for demo of queueSuper)

Methods

  • update - $(selector).flipper('update',newvalue[, callback]); - Triggers animation, changes text to newvalue. If currently animating, queues new value to be animated. callback is a function that is called when the update to newvalue is complete with 1 argument which is true or false. true indicated all of the queue is complete, false indicates there are more items to be processed
  • option - $(selector).flipper('option',config,value); - Changes the config option to value
  • clearqueue - $(selector).flipper('clearqueue'); - Clears any remaining changes in queue

Usage

HTML

<div id="number">0</div>

JS

//Initalize
$('#number').flipper({
    type:'fall',
    speed:'fast',
    queueSuper:false
});

//Do animation, change from 0 to 1
$('#number').flipper('update',1);

//Change speed to slow
$('#number').flipper('option','speed','slow');
//Change type to open
$('#number').flipper('option','type','');

//Do another animation with new options set, change from 1 to 2
$('#number').flipper('update',2);

Styling

There are 4 important classes that you can/should style

  • .flipper: This is the overall object. You should set the height and width manually
  • .fl-num: This matches both the top and bottom half. Can be used to add borders or radius
  • .fl-top: Matches top half. Can be used for colors and radius
  • .fl-bottom: Matches bottom half. Can be used for colors and radius.

TODO

  • Add more types
  • More testing on Mozilla
  • Test on Opera
