Newbie Needing Help With Animation Using Jstween


Recommended Posts


I started learning web design about 4 months ago. I want to become a professional web developer. I learned some html and css and I know enough to make a "static"(?) website. I started learning Javascript but can't quite put it together yet. Then I thought I will try to learn some php because it might be easier than Javascript to get my head around programming logic and then make Javascript more understandable when I go back to it. (Php is making more sense to me than Javascript, I think). A couple of days ago my sister (graphic designer) asked me whether I could do the programming for one of her designs but the client wants a lot of animation in her home page. Things like a swing that swings when you hover over it, a phone that shakes as if it's ringing and a flag that moves in the wind also when you hover it and all of these are also the links to the other pages. So I figured out how to do this in css3 but sadly this is not going to work obviously because so few browsers supports it at the moment. The I came across jstween and was sure that that will fix my problem but now I am stuck with this.


<!DOCTYPE html>




<style type="text/css">

#target {

position: relative;

left: 300px;

top: 100px;

width: 100px;

height: 100px;

display: block;



<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/jquery-1.10.1.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/jstween-1.1.js" ></script>



<script type="text/javascript">

$( '#target' ).tween({


start: 0,

stop: 360,

time: 0,

duration: 2,













<img src="images/swing.png" id="target" />






I have been reading on the internet for two days trying to figure out why this won't work and I am still convinced that it is some stupid small mistake on my part. Or that I am missing something with the css. Please help!
