It will be a shame if this port garners comparable attention to the original impress.js. Looking at both source codes, the meat of the original project is in the smart css3 transformations and related js.

We all know what that powerful 'jQuery' keyword does for a JavaScript project. Maybe I'm being cynical.




"We all know what that powerful 'jQuery' keyword does for a JavaScript project."

Could you please elaborate on this?


jQuery is, not so arguably, the most popular general Javascript prototyping framework.

A 'regular' Javascript library would likely not get as much attention as its jQuery equivalent due to all the momentum behind jQuery itself.


I think this comes from the idea that it will be easier to integrate/extend understand, as much of the complex functionality moves out of the project and into jQuery. That means that often the project becomes smaller and easier to digest.
