JavaScript & jQuery Plugins

Steady.js is a jank-free module to do logic on the onscroll event without performance regressions in @media-query like conditions.



Bounce.js is a tool for generating tasty CSS3 powered keyframe animations. The JS library for generating dynamic animations is on its way. Simply add a component, choose the preset. And then you can either get a short URL or export to CSS.



MotorCortex makes web animations easy, providing the ability to describe them through CSS-like syntax and stop messing animation logic with your actual javascript code, as MotorCortex aspires to mimic the human brain’s motor cortex by providing a new layer of software abstraction that handles and describes the movement of the various elements of an html application in a way that all timed effects that doesn’t interfere with the logic layer of the software,  plus each of the “transition” is treated as a matter of the whole application body and not of each element alone.

And all this with an easy and straight forward CSS-like syntax and a js API that respects and matches all the modern MV* javascript frameworks.



Card.js is a better credit card form in one line of code, as it will take any credit card form and make it the best part of the checkout process without you changing anything. As everything is created with pure CSS, HTML, and Javascript this plugin contains no images. Card.js ships with pure-CSS cards for Mastercard, Visa, Discover, and American Express.
