AliceJS is an open source JavaScript library to create advanced animations with CSS. It’s self-contained and works directly against the DOM to support a variety of use cases for web applications.

With one line of JavaScript, you can make almost any DOM elements swerve around the page, yet retain control over the animation's parameters. The framework also introduces the concept of Organics, adding randomisation characteristics to create visual effects that are subtly different each time. Useful for games and business apps alike, AliceJS can bring freshness and polish to your work in a very simple and straightforward manner.
