jQuery Transit

jQuery Transit is a plugin for to help you do CSS transformations and transitions in jQuery.

Include the plugin and you can use code like this to perform transformations:

$("#box").css({ x: '30px' });               // Move right
$("#box").css({ y: '60px' });               // Move down
$("#box").css({ translate: [60,30] });      // Move right and down
$("#box").css({ rotate: '30deg' });         // Rotate clockwise
$("#box").css({ scale: 2 });                // Scale up 2x (200%)
$("#box").css({ scale: [2, 1.5] });         // Scale horiz and vertical
$("#box").css({ skewX: '30deg' });          // Skew horizontally
$("#box").css({ skewY: '30deg' });          // Skew vertical
$("#box").css({ perspective: 100, rotateX: 30 }); // Webkit 3d rotation
$("#box").css({ rotateY: 30 });
$("#box").css({ rotate3d: [1, 1, 0, 45] });

To animate use use $.fn.transition instead of jQuery’s $.fn.animate:

$("#box").transition({ opacity: 0.1, scale: 0.3 });
$("#box").transition({ opacity: 0.1, scale: 0.3 }, 500);                         // duration
$("#box").transition({ opacity: 0.1, scale: 0.3 }, 'fast');                      // easing
$("#box").transition({ opacity: 0.1, scale: 0.3 }, 500, 'in');                   // duration+easing
$("#box").transition({ opacity: 0.1, scale: 0.3 }, function() {..});             // callback
$("#box").transition({ opacity: 0.1, scale: 0.3 }, 500, 'in', function() {..});  // everything

Works fine in all browsers that support it (be it prefixed, or unprefixed)

Note that this plugin will become obsolete once the new animation code lands in jQuery 1.8
