I had a need for controlling a sprite-sheet, with pause, play, and go-to-frame functionality. Also needed practice creating jQuery plugins.


The result is jquery.gsap.sprite.js. 


Gitub: https://github.com/agrothe/jquery.gsap.sprite

Demo: http://jsbin.com/quvuzo/6/edit?html,js,output


Sample Usage:

var mark = $(".mark").sprite({
   frameWidth: 24,
   frameHeight: 70,
   sheetWidth: 120,

// Pause the sprite

// Play the sprite

// Resume the sprite from where it was paused

// Restart the sprite from the beginning

// Stop the sprite

// Goto first frame (0 indexed) and stop
mark.sprite("seek", 0, true);

// Goto thrid frame (0 indexed) and stop
mark.sprite("seek", 2, true);

// Goto thrid frame (0 indexed) and continue
mark.sprite("seek", 2);

A few advanced features are overrides for TweenMax and TimelineMax libraries, as well as passing in your own Timeline object for maximum control.


Comments and suggestions more than welcome.
