Animated Reordering And Filtering Of Items: jQuery Quicksand

Quicksand is a very functional jQuery plugin for reordering and/or filtering items with a nice shuffling animation.

It simply replaces a collection of items with another & only requires the sets to be provided which can be done in multiple ways:

  • using plain HTML, like an unordered list
  • downloading data by an Ajax call
  • transforming HTML items by JavaScript

Quicksand also comes with few options like setting the duration or the easing type of the animation (optionally, Easing plugin can be used for more easing types).
