Has anyone tried to use the gsap jquery plugin with HighCharts. 


HighCharts animates as it displays the chart. The gsap plugin seems to break this animation.


I created a quick jsFiddle from the stock HighCharts jsfiddle to demonstrate: http://jsfiddle.net/ptrenery/43n82tbn/2/


Is it not possible to use these two libraries together?

Yes, it looks like HighCharts is trying to hook into the native animate() method and add capabilities that aren't compatible. In this case, it's trying to animate scaleY and translateY (neither of which is natively supported by jQuery). So yes, they're basically fighting with each other for control of animate(). 


I attached an updated version of the jquery.gsap.js plugin that allows you to pass a comma-delimited list of property names that GSAP should ignore (passthrough), like:


That appears to resolve things in this case, but you may need to add more properties (I am not familiar with HighCharts or which properties they're trying to hijack in animate()). 


Does that help?
