TransformJS 1.0 Beta

2D and 3D transforms as regular CSS properties you can set using .css() and animate using .animate()

Overview

CSS Transforms were first introduced in WebKit in 2007, and have now reached mass-adoption by all the major browser vendors. This is great news for web developers, especially in the case of 3D transforms which are hardware-accelerated, resulting in extremely smooth animations and responsive applications.

The API for applying transforms however, does not scale to complex applications which require intricate and complex management of transformations. TransformJS attempts to identify and address these problems, allowing developers to make use of transforms without having to be encumbered by cross browser issues, and low-level APIs.

Here's a snippet of code that uses TransformJS to apply multiple 3d transformations to the same element, relative to their current value, and animate the changes:

    $('#test').animate({
      translateY:'+=150',
      scale:'+=2',
      rotateY: '+=6.24',
      rotateX: '+=3.15',
      rotateZ: '+=3.15'
    },1500);
