Simple heavily costumizable Parallax plugin that creates the desired effect by animating the element background-position.

By avoiding translated animations, lowers the system requirements to obtain smooth and nice results.

Simply create any html tag and give it a background-image.

<div class="elementWithTheBgIWantToMove"></div>

This jquery-parallax plugin needs jquery to function, obvisouly. Said that, to enable the parallax effect just call the parallax method into the jquery object selector. Multiple items matching the selector would get the same effect on each element.



Config values

There are a number of config values that you can setup for any jquery-parallax call.

Name Values Default value Description

	speed: -0.3,
	outerHeight: false,
