#Animate.css Just-add-water CSS animation

1
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.

##Basic Usage

  1. Include the stylesheet on your document’s
    1
    <head>
    
1
2
3
  <head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="animate.min.css">
  </head>
  1. Add the class

    1
    animated
    
    to the element you want to animate. You may also want to include the class
    1
    infinite
    
    for an infinite loop.

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

Full example:

1
<h1 class="animated infinite bounce">Example</h1>

##Usage To use animate.css in your website, simply drop the stylesheet into your document’s

1
<head>
, and add the class
1
animated
to an element, along with any of the animation names. That’s it! You’ve got a CSS animated element. Super!

3
<head>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="animate.min.css">
</head>

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:

1
$('#yourElement').addClass('animated bounceOutLeft');

You can also detect when an animation ends:

1
$('#yourElement').one('webkitAnimationEnd mozAnimationEnd MSAnimationEnd oanimationend animationend', doSomething);

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

Note:

1
jQuery.one()
is used when you want to execute the event handler at most once. More information here.

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

1
2
3

5
#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 Grunt, and you can create custom builds pretty easily. First of all, you’ll need Grunt and all other dependencies:

1
2
$ cd path/to/animate.css/
$ sudo npm install

Next, run

1
grunt watch
to watch for changes and compile your custom builds. For example, if you want only some of the the “attention seekers”, simply edit the
1
animate-config.json
file to select only the animations you want to use.

  "pulse": false,
  "shake": true,
  "swing": true,
  "tada": true,
  "wobble": true,
  "jello":true
}

Contributing

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.
