Enliven ‘em is a jQuery plugin which lets you animate any vector graphic presented as SVG files in many different ways when your vector illustrations become visible in a user’s browser viewport (good for “non-hover” devices like Apple’s ones). Also you can allow an animation to be repeated when a user clicks or taps your graphic.

All animation data are stored in SVG code itself which lets you port it to any domain. The Animation Editor, which is included in the download package, can help you to add these data in a WISIWYG mode.

The integration of the Enliven ‘em script is easy: only two additional scripts in your page’s code in addition to your existing jQuery.
