jQuery.spritely is a jQuery plugin created by Artlogic for creating dynamic character and background animation in pure HTML and JavaScript. It’s a simple, light-weight plugin with a few simple methods for creating animated sprites such as the birds you see on this page, and dynamic scrolling backgrounds.


You can use it on any html web page, and any part of the page can interact with a sprite (click anywhere on this page and wait and you’ll see what we mean).


Spritely has the following great advantages

  • it’s a great alternative to Flash if your desired platform does not support it (check out this page on an iPhone!).
  • it’s light-weight so you can do fill the whole window with movement without draining bandwidth.
  • it is supported on the major modern browsers, including Safari on the iPhone and iPad.
  • animated objects can also fly above the text of a web page, or you could animate a background, without affecting other elements on the page.
  • you should be able to make fully accessible web pages in pure html and javascript without any problem
