Magic – CSS Animations With Impressive Effects

We see lots of impressive CSS3 demos regularly: flipping, rotating or sliding items and more. Magic is a stylesheet that includes many of these CSS effects (also mentioned that “more will be added”).

Magic CSS Animations

The effects are collected under few categories (magic, perspective, rotate, bling, static, slide) and all of the effects are pretty attractive. Each of them has their own classes and the easiest way to use them is by adding/removing these classes to the targeted elements via JavaScript.

Hitch – Expressive Power To CSS With JavaScript

Hitch is a lightweight JavaScript library that adds expressive capabilities to CSS files. It has some of the powers of CSS preprocessors like prefixing or variables but also some other stuff.

The library comes with multiple ready-to-use selectors like “anyof, allof, has..” and allows us to define any new ones (called hitches).

Hitch

These hitches are simple JavaScript functions and can be written easily (once the library has more users, there will probably be many hitches around). Hitch is very well-documented, has examples and it works on all modern browsers..

Pop Easy – Lightweight Modals For jQuery

Pop Easy is a jQuery plugin for quickly creating completely customizable modals. Regarding the design, the default modal already has a good-looking interface and it can be changed/improved with CSS.

jQuery Modal Box Plugin - Pop Easy

There are options for customizing the animation used when the modal appears, its speed, the opacity, if it’ll be opened onLoad and more. Considering the size, the plugin is very useful. One thing seems to be missing for now is the built-in ability to load remote data (Ajax).

The plugin is lightweight (2kb) and has support for displaying any HTML element, including videos.

Requirements: jQuery
Compatibility: All Major Browsers
