I’ve breached the subject of animation multiple times in this book so far, but only the very basic bits. You’ve done some fading and sliding, but nothing more—until now. jQuery has a fully-featured animation library, but it comes with its quirks: sometimes things don’t entirely happen as you might expect. This chapter will cover those “gotchas” and a lot more, including:
  • jQuery’s animate() method, which allows you to animate a large number of properties.

  • More jQuery convenience methods, such as fadeOut, slideIn, and so on.

  • jQuery’s animation queue, which dictates how and when animations are run. They are not always run as you might expect.

  • Common mistakes beginners make with animation—and how to avoid these mistakes.

  • Enhancing the animation on your accordion so that it is less buggy.

  • The infamous jQuery project: an image slider.
